Voluntary Children’s Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP) 
Peer Consultation Meeting on Vinylidene Chloride


What:  Vinylidene Chloride VCCEP Peer Consultation 
When:  January 29-30, 2003
Where:  University of Cincinnati's Kingsgate Conference Center, Cincinnati, Ohio  

A panel of scientists with expertise in toxicity testing, risk assessment, exposure assessment, and children’s health met on January 29-30, 2003, to conduct a peer consultation of a submission on vinylidene chloride.  The DOW Chemical Company 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 vinylidene chloride to children, and, if not, to identify data needs.  The meeting was open to the public.  

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. 

The following are the original documents submitted by the sponsor for the panel's review:
