ITER data, focusing on hazard identification and dose-response assessment, is extracted from each agency's assessment and contains links to the source documentation. Among the key data provided in ITER are ATSDR minimal risk levels; Health Canada tolerable intakes/concentrations and tumorigenic doses/concentrations; EPA carcinogen classifications, unit risks, slope factors, oral reference doses, and inhalation reference concentrations; RIVM maximum permissible risk levels; and noncancer and/or cancer risk values (that have undergone peer review) derived by independent parties.
