The guidance is in response to a directive from the House Appropriations Committee FY 2010 Report directing the EPA to develop and publish criteria by Oct. 30, 2010, for evaluating results of Tier 1 screening and determining whether a chemical should undergo Tier 2 analysis. The purpose of the weight-of-evidence (WoE) document is to set forth some of the general principles, criteria and considerations that the agency generally believes to be relevant to the EPA's approach.
The agency plans to evaluate data submitted as part of a two-tiered paradigm for screening and testing chemicals for endocrine activity.
