Skin Notation Strategy

April 2010
NIOSH Docket Number 153-A

Historically, skin notations have been published in the NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards. This practice will continue with the NIOSH skin notation assignments for each evaluated chemical being integrated as they become available. A support document called a Skin Notation Profile has been developed for each evaluated chemical. The Skin Notation Profile for a chemical is intended to provide information supplemental to the skin notation, including a summary of all relevant data used to aid in determining the hazards associated with skin exposures.

NIOSH obtained comments on the draft skin notation assignments and Skin Notation Profiles for 22 chemicals. The submissions are listed below.

Note: To view the final Skin Notation Profiles visit the Skin Notation Profiles website .
