Standing Operating Procedures for Developing Acute Exposure Guideline Levels for Hazardous Chemicals contains a detailed and comprehensive methodology for developing acute exposure guideline levels (AEGLs) for toxic substances from inhalation exposures. The book provides guidance on what documents and databases to use, toxicity endpoints that need to be evaluated, dosimetry corrections from animal to human exposures, selection of appropriate uncertainty factors to address the variability between animals and humans and within the human population, selection of modifying factors to address data deficiencies, time scaling, and quantitative cancer risk assessment. It also contains an example of a summary of a technical support document and an example of AEGL derivation. This book will be useful to persons in the derivation of levels from other exposure routes-both oral and dermal-as well as risk assessors in the government, academe, and private industry.http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10122.html FORMAT AND CONTENT OF TECHNICAL SUPPORT DOCUMENTS 130 10. ... aElements that should be included in the Data Adequacy entry are discussed in Section 2.3.3 of this SOP manual.
