Abstract

This chapter provides a broad overview of governmental regulatory approaches to controlling exposures to carcinogens. It focuses specifically on statutes related to the United States, while giving lesser coverage to approaches in Europe. The focus is at the federal level, even though states may also promulgate regulations. Topics discussed include the identification of carcinogens, principles underlying regulations for carcinogens, and carcinogen regulation outside the United States.
