EPA and the ATSDR are revising the Priority List of Hazardous Substances.
This list includes substances most commonly found at facilities on the
CERCLA National Priorities List (NPL) which have been determined to be of
greatest concern to public health at or around these NPL hazardous wastes.
The agencies have developed and are making available a revised CERCLA
Priority List of 275 Hazardous Substances, based on the most recent
information available to ATSDR and EPA. Each substance on the priority list
is a candidate to become the subject of a toxicological profile prepared by
ATSDR and subsequently a candidate for the identification of priority data
A total of 815 candidate substances were ranked with the current algorithm.
Of these candidates, the 275 substances on the priority list may become the
subject of toxicological profiles in the future. The top 25 substances on
the 1999 Priority List of Hazardous Substances in order of priority are:
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
