1.	Continuation of the Panel’s review of the draft report “Air
Toxics Hot Spots Risk Assessment Guidelines - Technical Support
Document for the Derivation of Noncancer Reference Exposure
Levels” (April 2008)

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA)
will continue presenting its report from the May meeting,
describing the methodology used in developing acute, 8-hour, and
chronic health protective levels (reference exposure
levels[RELs]) used in non-cancer risk assessments.  Pursuant to
Health and Safety Code section 44360 (b) (2), OEHHA must develop
health risk assessment guidelines under the Air Toxics Hot Spots
Program.  This report replaces and updates previous acute and
chronic Technical Support Documents and addresses the mandate
under the Children’s Environmental Health Protection Act (SB 25,
Escutia, 1999; Health and Safety Code sections 39669.5 et seq.)
to ensure that risk assessment methods adequately protect
infants, children, and other sensitive subpopulations.

The Panel will also review OEHHA’s recommendations for six
proposed RELs:  acetaldehyde, acrolein, arsenic, formaldehyde,
manganese, and mercury.  This report details new guidelines and
health protective levels for these compounds.
