> Health Canada Hosts Meeting to Invite Submission of Information for 
> the Complex Exposure Tool (ComET)
>
> As part of Health Canada’s responsibility for Categorization of the 
> Domestic Substances List (DSL) under CEPA 1999, the Minister of Health 
> is identifying substances for subsequent screening assessment based on 
> their potential for exposure to the general population in Canada.  A 
> Complex Exposure Tool (ComET), which will be made publicly available, 
> has been developed to contribute to priority setting and subsequent 
> screening assessment to meet this mandate.
>
> The Existing Substances Division of Health Canada is hosting a meeting 
> on November 8, 2004, to demonstrate the operational architecture of 
> ComET and the underlying information on which it is based.  At this 
> meeting, contribution by interested parties of information or logic 
> relevant to the development or refinement of ComET is being 
> requested.  The meeting also provides opportunity for all parties to 
> offer suggestions for quality assurance or other important elements in 
> the development and application of ComET.  The meeting is being 
> facilitated for Health Canada by the Lifeline Group with the services 
> of Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment. 
>
>  The purpose of the meeting is to introduce ComET and its underlying 
> information platform to the public and stakeholders and also to invite 
> from the public and stakeholders, submission of relevant information 
> that could improve the information platform that will be used in 
> ComET.
>
> In order to provide access to as many interested parties as possible, 
> the meeting is being held at a facility which provides for both 
> on-site and remote (electronic connection) participation.  The meeting 
> will be held at the Northern Kentucky University Metropolitan 
> Education Training Services (METS) Center outside of Cincinnati Ohio.  
> Attendance at the METS center is limited, but access via telephone 
> conference call and webcast will be provided without cost to 
> interested parties.  Attendance will be apportioned by Health Canada 
> to assure distribution of the available space to a wide spectrum of 
> stakeholders and interested parties, including industry, citizen and 
> consumer interest groups and Government agencies.  Priority will be 
> given to individuals who intend to contribute technical information to 
> the project or who can significantly assist with harvesting relevant 
> information from their organizations and affiliations. 
>
