(ITER) International Toxicity Estimates for Risk Assessment

ITER is an Internet database of human health risk values and cancer classifications for over 680 chemicals of environmental concern from multiple organizations worldwide.  ITER is the only database that presents risk data in a tabular format for easy comparison, along with a synopsis explaining differences in data and a link to each organization for more information.





Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment's ITER database is currently available at (http://projectiter.org/).  This location allows for additional search functions.  Edits to ITER are still made asap.


The Risk Information Exchange (RiskIE) is a companion database to ITER. It includes in-progress or recently completed risk assessment projects. Explore RiskIE at http://www.allianceforrisk.net/RiskIE.htm.  


RiskIE is a database of notifications about a variety of human health risk assessment projects that are underway or recently completed.  Projects listed on RiskIE are both chemical-specific and nonchemical-specific, and range from many types of risk value development to risk methods document development.  RiskIE currently tracks over 4000 in progress or recently completed risk assessment projects conducted by 35 different organizations representing 13 different countries.
