The NTP has completed the review process for candidate substances under consideration for listing in the 12th RoC. The NTP considered the input from the BSC peer review, public comments, and any new, relevant scientific information on styrene in finalizing its recommendation on the listing status of styrene, and prepared the draft RoC. The NTP Director shared the draft RoC with the NTP Executive .Committee. The draft RoC is submitted to the Secretary, Health and Human Services, for review and approval. Once approved, the Secretary will transmit the 12th RoC to Congress and it will be released to the public.
