ITER Peer Review for Ethylene Glycol and N,N-Dimethylformamide

What:    Ethylene Glycol and N,N-Dimethylformamide ITER Peer Review
When:   February 14, 2000 (follow up conference call March 29, 2000 for ethylene glycol)
Where:  Ottawa, Canada

An independent panel of expert scientists and risk assessors met in Ottawa on February 14, 2000 to review hazard characterization and dose-response assessments on ethylene glycol and dimethylformamide. A subsequent conference call was held on March 29, 2000 to discuss remaining questions on ethylene glycol. Health Canada developed both assessments as part of the Priority Substances Program under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. This meeting and conference call were conducted by Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA), a non-profit organization dedicated to the best use of toxicity data in risk assessment. Expert peer reviewers donated their time and talents to provide an independent review of the assessments. The objective is a comprehensive overall review of the materials as provided by the combined experience of all the reviewers.
