Suggested Changes in Federal Report on Carcinogens to be Aired
Sept. 15 at Public Meeting in Washington
- Expand the use of unpublished data in the review.
- Involve experts from potentially affected industries repeatedly during the review.
- Hold reviews for the Report on Carcinogens in the Washington, D.C., area rather than in North Carolina. (The National Toxicology Program is headquartered at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in Research Triangle Park between Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham in North Carolina and reviews have generally been held in the NIEHS conference center there.)
- Allot more time for public/industry/union/outside-scientific comments.
The press and electronic media are welcome to attend and cover the meeting. The public and media can register with and/or present comments to Ms. Angie Wilson, NIEHS P.O. Box 12233, A3-07, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
People sending written comments or registering to make oral comments are asked to provide their affiliation, mailing address, phone, fax, e-mail, and sponsoring organization (if any). The meeting will be chaired by Bernard Goldstein, M.D., director of the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute at Rutgers and University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey.
