I. Background Information on the IRIS
Program and Systematic Review
EPA’s IRIS Program is a human health
assessment program that evaluates
quantitative and qualitative information
on effects that may result from exposure
to chemicals found in the environment.
Through the IRIS Program, EPA
provides high quality science-based
human health assessments to support
the Agency’s regulatory activities and
decisions to protect public health.
As part of developing a draft IRIS
assessment, EPA presents a methods
document, referred to as the protocol,
for conducting a chemical-specific
systematic review of the available
scientific literature. EPA is seeking
public comment on components of the
protocol including the described
strategies for literature searches, criteria
for study inclusion or exclusion,
considerations for evaluating study
methods, information management for
extracting data, approaches for synthesis
within and across lines of evidence, and
methods for derivation of toxicity
values. The protocol serves to inform
the subsequent development of the draft
assessment and is made available to the
public. EPA may update the protocol
based on the evaluation of the literature,
and any updates will be posted to the
docket and on the IRIS website.
