14th Report on Carcinogens released

ROC14thEdOn November 6th, 2016, the National Toxicology Program of NIH released its 14th Report on Carcinogens.

The Report on Carcinogens (RoC) is a US science-based, public health report that identifies agents in the environment that pose a carcinogenic risk.

Substances are listed in the RoC following a multi-step process with several opportunities for scientific and public inputs and using established listing criteria. For each listed substance, the RoC contains a profile that contains the listing recommendation and a summary of the scientific evidence used in reaching that recommendation. The profile also contains information on potential sources of exposure and current US federal regulations to limit exposures.

The technical content of the RoC makes it a valuable toxicological reference for occupational hygiene professionals. We think that many of the visitors to our website would want to have a copy in our electronic reference library.

The RoC can be downloaded free of charge as a 24.3 Mb zip file from this link: https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/ntp/roc/content/roc14.zip. Once the file is extracted to a folder on your computer or tablet, its contents can be viewed in you web browser by simply clicking on the start.html file.
