Producer price index manual theory and practice by International Monetary Fund( )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The producer price index (PPI) measures the rate at which the prices of producer goods and services are changing overtime. It is a key statistic for economic and business decision making and inflation monitoring. The Producer Price Index Manual: Theory and Practice provides clear, up-to-date guidance on the concepts, uses, methods, and economic theory of the PPI, including information on classifications, sources, compilation techniques, and analytical uses of the PPI. The Manual supersedes the previous international guidance on PPIs (available in the Manual on Producers' Price Indices for Industrial Goods, published by the United Nations Statistics Division in 1979). The Manual's conceptual framework derives from the System of National Accounts1993 and recent developments in index number theory. Preparation of the Manual was undertaken by the Intersecretariat Working Group on Price Statistics through a technical expert group chaired by the IMF and involving representatives from the ILO, the OECD, the UN Economic Commission for Europe, the World Bank, national statistical offices, and academic institutions

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new volume in the Environmental Health Criteria Series presents an overview of dermal absorption and its consideration in the risk assessment of chemicals. It describes the methods available to assess dermal absorption, the significance of skin as a route of exposure and the interpretation of results of dermal absorption studies for risk assessment. In addition, it presents and discusses current topics of interest in the field of dermal absorption. This book will be useful to biology and toxicology scientists and researchers, as well as to regulatory authorities and the chemical industry
Principles of characterizing and applying human exposure models by International Program on Chemical Safety( )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this manual is to provide guidance to risk assessors on the use of quantitative toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic data to address interspecies and interindividual differences in dose and concentration-response assessment. Section 1 focuses on the relevance of this guidance in the context of the broader risk assessment paradigm and other initiatives of the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) project on the Harmonization of Approaches to the Assessment of Risk from Exposure to Chemicals. Technical background material is presented in section 2, followed by generic guidance for the development of chemical-specific adjustment factors in section 3 and accompanying summary figures. Illustrative case-studies are included in an Appendix, and a glossary of terms is also provided.--Publisher's description
Principles for modelling dose-response for the risk assessment of chemicals by WHO Task Group on Environmental Health Criteria on Principles for Modelling Dose-Response for the Risk Assessment of Chemicals( )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is part of the ongoing review of the underlying scientific bases for decision-making in chemical risk assessment by International Program on Chemical Safety. It involves specific consideration of the area of dose-response assessment in the evaluation of information from toxicological studies in animals and from human clinical and epidemiological studies. It covers toxicants with threshold effects and those for which there may be no practical threshold, such as substances that are genotoxic and carcinogenic. The discussions are concerned with that subset of cause-effect relationships commonly referred to as dose-response models, which are typically used to characterize the biological effects of intentional (e.g. drugs and nutrients) and unintentional (e.g. contaminants) exposure to chemicals. This report is intended primarily to provide descriptive guidance for risk assessors in using dose-response modeling in hazard characterization. It will also provide mathematical modelers with an appreciation of issues to be considered when modeling in the context of the risk assessment process. Risk managers will be able to obtain a general understanding of the applications and limitations of dose-response modeling. For both risk assessors and risk managers, some considerations for communicating the results of risk assessments that use dose-response modeling are presented.--Publisher's description
Resorcinol first draft by S. K Hahn( )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Resorcinol is a white crystalline compound used largely in the rubber industry and in wood bonding applications and is an important source of chemical intermediate in the manufacture of speciality chemicals. Other uses of the chemical include the manufacture of dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, flame retardants, agricultural chemicals, fungicidal creams and lotions, and hair dye formulations. This Concise International Assessment Document (CICAD) evaluates the scientific literature on the health and environmental effects of resorcinol based on selected national and regional evaluations. Uncertainties in the risk assessment are set out for both human health and the environment--Publisher's description

Ethylene oxide by R Liteplo( Book )
6 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ethylene oxide is a colorless, highly reactive gas at room temperature and pressure. Almost all of ethylene oxide produced is used in the manufacture of ethylene glycol, but some amount is used as a sterilant for health care materials and other heat-sensitive products. Ethylene oxide is an alkylating agent and forms protein and DNA adducts. Based on studies in animals, cancer is considered the critical end-point for effects of ethylene oxide on human health for long-term exposure of the general population.--Publisher's description
Acrolein by R Gomes( Book )
9 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book evaluates the risk to human health and the environment posed by exposures to Acrolein. Acrolein is a clear, colorless liquid with an intensively acrid odor. It is released to the atmosphere as a product of fermentation and ripening processes. It is also emitted by forest fires as a product of incomplete combustion. In Canada, acrolein is used mainly as an aquatic herbicide in irrigation canals and as a microbiocide in produced water during oil exploration. Based upon studies conducted primarily in laboratory animals, adverse health effects associated with exposure to acrolein are mostly confined to the tissue of first contact (i.e., the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts after inhalation and ingestion, respectively) and are concentration related.--Publisher's description
Elemental speciation in human health risk assessment ( )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation The purpose of this book is to assess, evaluate, and give guidance on the role of elemental speciation and speciation analysis in human health hazard and risk assessment. The book is directed at risk assessors and regulators to emphasize the importance of consideration of speciation in their deliberations. To date, this issue has not been a part of most hazard and risk assessments. Further aims of the publication are to encourage the analysis of speciation of elements to increase knowledge on the effect of speciation on mode of action and to increase understanding of health effects
