    Description: ITER contains data in support of human health risk assessments. It is compiled by Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) and contains over 600 chemical records with key data from the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR), Health Canada, National Institute of Public Health & the Environment (RIVM) - The Netherlands, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and independent parties whose risk values have undergone peer review. ITER provides a comparison of international risk assessment information in a side-by-side format and explains differences in risk values derived by different organizations. 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.
