    The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Alert: Preventing Occupational Exposures to Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs in Health Care Settings was published in September 2004 (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2004-165/). In Appendix A of the Alert, NIOSH identified a sample list of major hazardous drugs. The list was compiled from information provided by four institutions that had generated lists of hazardous drugs for their respective institutions, as well as a list from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). The 2004 list was updated in 2010, 2012, and 2014. The current update (2016) adds 34 drugs, five of which have safe-handling recommendations from the manufacturers. In 2014, a new format was developed for the list of hazardous drugs, as described in this document. The review process for the addition of the new listings is described in the Federal Register: http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docket/review/docket233a/pdfs/233a_2015-12857.pdf(Supersedes 2014-138).
