Critical Aspects of EPA's IRIS Assessment of Inorganic Arsenic:
Interim Report

Requested by Congress in P.L. 112-74, this interim report from the National Research Council is based on information presented at a 2012 public workshop. It recommends how critical issues in assessing cancer and other effects from oral exposure to inorganic arsenic can be addressed in EPA's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) assessment.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 7, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
