NIOSH Docket Number 240

Announcement of Carcinogen and Recommended Exposure Limit (REL) Policy Assessment

NIOSH is currently reviewing its cancer (carcinogen) and related recommended exposure limits (RELs) policies to ensure that they reflect current scientific and risk management practices. A Federal Register notice is published describing the review process and requesting comments and information from the public and interested stakeholders. A public meeting was held in December 2011 where stakeholders and other interested parties could ask questions and provide comments to NIOSH. Additional information about the NIOSH re-evaluation of its cancer and REL policies, including the Federal Register notice and the revised draft policies, will be posted on this page when it is available.

NIOSH has created a new NIOSH Cancer and REL Policy Web Topic Page.
