Final Skin Notation Profiles Available for Five Chemicals, Including Acrylic Acid

Published May 10, 2017

Last week, NIOSH published final skin notation profiles for five chemicals. Skin notation profiles are agency-authored technical documents that provide information supplemental to chemicals’ skin notations, including summaries of all relevant data used to help determine the hazards associated with skin exposures. Each skin notation profile includes a brief summary of epidemiological and toxicological data associated with skin contact with a chemical and the rationale behind the chemical’s hazard-specific skin notation assignment.

Skin notation profiles are now available for the following chemicals:

NIOSH skin notations offer warnings about the direct, systemic, and sensitizing effects of chemical exposures to the skin. Fifty skin notation profiles are currently available as PDFs on the NIOSH website. To learn more about the NIOSH strategy for assigning skin notations, see NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 61.
