Extremely harmful elements (EHSs)² could be published by accident due to chemical spills, commercial explosions, fires, or injuries concerning railroad autos and vans transporting EHSs. staff and citizens in groups surrounding business amenities the place EHSs are synthetic, used, or kept and in groups alongside the nation's railways and highways are almost certainly prone to being uncovered to airborne EHSs in the course of unintended releases or intentional releases by means of terrorists. Pursuant to the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, the U.S. Environmental safety company (EPA) has pointed out nearly four hundred EHSs at the foundation of acute lethality facts in rodents.

In 1998, EPA and DOD asked that the NRC independently assessment the AEGLs built by way of NAC. in line with that request, the NRC geared up inside of its Committee on Toxicology (COT) the Committee on Acute publicity guide degrees, which ready this report.

Acute publicity instruction degrees for chosen Airborne Chemicals is the 10th quantity of the sequence and files for N,N-dimethylformamide, jet propellant fuels five and eight, methyl ethyl ketone, perchloromethyl mercaptan, phosphorus oxychloride, phosphorus trichloride, and sulfuryl chloride.
