Exposure to unsafe substances is of considerable concern to ATSDR. ATSDR's Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences publishes the complying with Completed Exposure Pathway Site Count Report along with the Priority List of Hazardous Substances. The CEP ranking offered below is based on a website frequency count, and hence notes the variety of sites at which a substance has been found in a CEP. This details is originated from ATSDR public health assessments and wellness examinations. Another distinction between both exposure matters is that since the substance top priority list is mandated by CERCLA, it only uses data from CERCLA sites on the National Priorities List, whereas this CEP report uses data from all ATSDR-activity sites at which a CEP has been found. The substances in the CEP report resemble the substances on the substance concern checklist. Since the substance priority checklist uses toxicity, frequency of incident, and capacity for human exposure to identify its top priority substances, other low-toxicity substances will not show up on the checklist and, consequently, will not become topics of toxicological accounts. The CEP report consists of substance groups, procedure wastes, and other ecological hazards at unsafe waste sites that do not have a Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number. Public health and wellness officials can use the CEP Report for a fast introduction of the substances most frequently entailed in exposures at ATSDR sites and events.
