AGENDA—

1.	Continuation of the Panel’s review of proposed acute, 8-hour,
and chronic Reference Exposure Levels for caprolactam (July
2011)
The Panel will continue its review of the proposed reference
exposure levels (RELs) for caprolactam.  RELs are concentrations
in air at or below which noncancer adverse health effects are not
expected to occur, even in sensitive members of the general
population.  Once finalized and adopted by the Director of the
Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), the
summary will become part of Appendix D to the “Air Toxics Hot
Spots Risk Assessment Guidelines Technical Support Document for
the Derivation of Noncancer Reference Exposure Levels.”  State
law (Health and Safety Code section 44360 (b)(2)) requires that
OEHHA develop these health risk assessment guidelines for the Air
Toxics Hot Spots Program.

2.	Continuation of the Panel’s review of proposed acute, 8-hour,
and chronic Reference Exposure Levels for nickel and nickel
compounds (July 2011)
The Panel will continue its review of the proposed RELs for
nickel and nickel compounds.  As noted above, once finalized and
adopted by the OEHHA Director, the summary will become part of
Appendix D to the “Air Toxics Hot Spots Risk Assessment
Guidelines Technical Support Document for the Derivation of
Noncancer Reference Exposure Levels.”

INFORMATION ABOUT
THE SCIENTIFIC REVIEW PANEL

The Scientific Review Panel (Panel) is charged with evaluating
the risk assessments of substances proposed for identification as
toxic air contaminants by the Air Resources Board (ARB), the
Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) and the
Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR), and the review of
guidelines prepared by OEHHA.  In carrying out this
responsibility, the Panel reviews the exposure and health
assessment reports and underlying scientific data on which the
reports are based, which are prepared by the ARB, DPR, and OEHHA
pursuant to Health and Safety Code sections 39660 39661, 39669.5
and 44360, and Food and Agricultural Code sections 14022-14023. 
These reports are prepared for the purpose of determining whether
a substance or pesticide should be identified as a toxic air
contaminant, or as guidelines to be used in preparing health risk
assessments.

The Panel welcomes written comments or submissions from all
parties regarding a report, but does not accept oral comments
from the public at its meetings.  Although written comments are
accepted up to the day of a scheduled meeting, to assure adequate
review the Panel requests that written comments and information
be submitted to the Panel Liaison (contact information below),
preferably, no later than two weeks prior to a scheduled
meeting.

Transcripts to previously held Panel meetings and other
