As our understanding of chemical carcinogenesis has grown significantly over the last several decades, it is appropriate to look at whether long-standing test methods and risk assessment approaches should be updated based on new understandings. The US EPA is now in the process of updating its guidelines for risk assessment, which includes the 2005 Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment. These guidelines are used throughout the US EPA, as well as by numerous other federal and state agencies, to aid regulatory decision-making and set research priorities. This workshop will provide an opportunity for national/international experts and stakeholders to engage in an information exchange regarding these revisions, which will be of great value to guide next steps towards the modernization of carcinogenicity identification and risk assessment.
