Background

By Congressional mandate, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) produces "toxicological profiles" for hazardous substances found at National Priorities List (NPL) sites. These hazardous substances are ranked based on frequency of occurrence at NPL sites, toxicity, and potential for human exposure. Toxicological profiles are developed from a priority list of 275 substances. ATSDR also prepares toxicological profiles for the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Energy (DOE) on substances related to federal sites.

So far, 319 toxicological profiles have been published or are under development as “finals” or “drafts for public comment”; 300 profiles were published as finals; 140 profiles have been updated. Currently, 3 profiles are being revised based on public comments received; 6 profiles under development These profiles cover more than 250 substances.

Toxicological profiles are developed in two stages:

(1) DRAFTS: The toxicological profiles are first produced as drafts. ATSDR announces in the Federal Register the release of these draft profiles for a 90 day public comment period. Request draft toxicological profiles from ATSDR's Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences.

(2) FINALS: After the 90 day comment period, ATSDR considers incorporating all comments into the documents. ATSDR finalizes the profiles. Profiles are available online at: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/index.asp or on CD-ROM
