NIOSH Requests Technical Review of Draft Skin Notation Profiles

NIOSH has asked reviewers to consider whether the skin notation profiles clearly outline the systemic health hazards, direct health hazards, and allergic response health hazards associated with exposures of the skin to each chemical.

NIOSH has requested a technical review of draft skin notations for 19 chemicals. These skin notation profiles provide information supplemental to chemicals' skin notations, including summaries of all relevant data used to help determine the hazards associated with skin exposures. Some of the chemicals are dichlorvos, heptachlor, disulfoton, atrazine, and morpholine.

NIOSH has asked reviewers to consider whether the skin notation profiles clearly outline the systemic health hazards, direct health hazards, and allergic response health hazards associated with exposures of the skin to each chemical. The agency also requests feedback on whether the documents are organized appropriately, if the conclusions are supported by the data, and whether the included tables are clear and appropriate.
