  • Description:
    Federal Register. 2004; 69(85):24164–8. SUMMARY: Agents H and HD are stored and are being destroyed by the Department of Defense (DoD). Public Law 99–145 (50 U.S.C. 1521) mandates that the Secretary of Defense carry out the destruction of the United States’ stockpile of lethal chemical agents and munitions. Public Law 91–121 and Public Law 91–441 (50 U.S.C. 1512) mandate that, prior to the disposal of any such agent within the United States, the Secretary of Defense implement any precautionary measures recommended by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to protect the public health. This notice provides CDC’s interim recommendations for worker and general population airborne exposure limits (AELs) for sulfur mustard. These revised exposure limits replace CDC’s previously recommended AELs originally issued in 1988. These limits are being issued as interim criteria pending improved characterization of carcinogenic potential associated with sulfur mustard. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2005. An implementation period is necessary to allow the DoD to make program adjustments and allow time for changes to environmental permits as required.
