Appendix J
List of Extant Standards and Guidelines in A Technical Support Document

Section 8.2 of the technical support document (TSD) compares the AEGL values for a chemical with other standards and guidelines previously published for exposure durations ranging from 10 min to 8 h. A summary discussion of important comparisons should be presented in the text and the values for recognized standards and guidelines, if available, should be presented in the table. The statement, “All currently available standards and guidelines are shown in Table…” should be included in the text to affirm completeness of the table. Only those standards or guidelines with published values for a given chemical should be included in the table. In cases where the exposure duration of a published standard or guideline differs from those designated for AEGLs (e.g., 15-min PEL-STEL), the value should be placed in parentheses in the column of the closest AEGL exposure duration category and footnoted to indicate its true exposure duration. A list of recognized standards and guidelines and the order in which they should appear in the following table.
