Voluntary Children's Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP) Peer Consultation Meeting on Octabromodiphenyl Ether and Pentabromodiphenyl Ether

What:  Octabromodiphenyl Ether & Pentabromodiphenyl Ether VCCEP Peer Consultation Meetings
When:  June 3-5, 2003
Where:  University of Cincinnati's Kingsgate Conference Center, Cincinnati, OH. 

A panel of scientists with expertise in toxicity testing, risk assessment, exposure assessment, and children’s health met on June 3-5, 2003 to conduct a peer consultation of submissions on octabromodiphenyl ether and pentabromodiphenyl ether.  The Great Lakes Chemical Company (GLCC) prepared the submissions for the Voluntary Children's Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP).  The purpose of these meetings was to provide a science-based forum to determine whether the existing data are adequate to characterize the risks of octabromodiphenyl ether and pentabromodiphenyl ether to children, and, if not, to identify data needs.

A report that summarizes the panel discussions and the individual panel members’ conclusions is found below.  Note that panel members served as individuals and represented their own personal scientific opinions.  They did not represent their companies, agencies, funding organizations, or other entities with which they are associated.  The Peer Consultation Panel Meeting Report includes the List of Attendees, Meeting Materials (which contains the agenda, overview, panel charge, panelist biographical sketches and conflict of interest/bias disclosures and presenter biographical sketches), Public Comments, and Sponsor Presentation Slides.
