SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Information About IRIS EPA’s IRIS Program is a human health assessment program that evaluates quantitative and qualitative risk information on effects that may result from exposure to chemical substances found in the environment. Through the IRIS Program, EPA provides the highest quality science-based human health assessments to support EPA’s regulatory activities and decisions to protect public health. The IRIS database contains information for chemical substances that can be used to support the first two steps (hazard identification and doseresponse evaluation) of the human health risk assessment process. When supported by available data, IRIS provides health effects information and toxicity values for health effects (including cancer and effects other than cancer). Government and others combine IRIS toxicity values with exposure information to characterize public health risks of chemical substances; this information is then used to support risk management decisions designed to protect public health. II. IRIS Public Science Meetings Conducted in 2013 and 2014 The IRIS Program began conducting Bimonthly Public Science Meetings in December 2013 and continued through 2014. During this period, a total of five public science meetings were held. These meetings covered 12 chemicals undergoing assessment, including 2 assessments undergoing problem formulation, 8 assessments in the step 1 literature search and evidence table phase, and 2 assessments in the step 4 draft assessment phase as indicated in the following table.
