The article announces that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has reformed the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) to revitalize the program and ensure its scientific quality. The process associated with IRIS assessments will be shortened to 23 months. It will include the opportunity for public comment and rely on an external peer review. The agency will conduct a scientific literature search and initiate a data call-in prior to a draft IRIS assessment.
