Voluntary Children's Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP) Peer Consultation Meeting on 

What:    Ethylbenzene VCCEP Peer Consultation
When:   February 22-23, 2007
Northern Kentucky University Metropolitan Education and Training Services (METS), Erlanger, Kentucky (close to the Cincinnati Airport)

A panel of scientists with expertise in toxicology, risk characterization, exposure assessment, mechanisms of toxicity, and PBPK modeling met on February 22-23, 2007, to conduct a peer consultation of a submission on ethylbenzene.  The American Chemistry Council Ethylbenzene Panel prepared the submission for the Voluntary Children's Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP).  The purpose of the peer consultation meeting was to provide a science-based forum to determine whether the existing data are adequate to characterize the risks of ethylbenzene to children, and, if not, to identify data needs.  The meeting was open to the public, and individuals who could not attend in person were encouraged to observe the meeting via a real-time web cast using their personal computers. 

Based upon discussions that occurred during this peer consultation meeting, the sponsors have revised their submission and submitted the revision to EPA.  A link to the revised submission is found below.

Revised Information (August 14, 2007) 

The sponsors sent a revised ethylbenzene submission to EPA in August 2007, based upon comments they received from panelists at the peer consultation meeting of February 22-23, 2007.  The revised submission report and its appendices are provided below.  The sponsors made no revisions in Appendices A through O; they revised Appendix P; and they omitted Appendices S and T.  Also provided below is the sponsorsí cover letter, which identifies the revisions that were made. Note that the sponsorsí revised submission was not reviewed by the VCCEP ethylbenzene peer consultation panel.
