  • Description:
    In 1970, Congress gave the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) responsibility for reviewing Department of Defense (DOD) plans for transporting and/or disposing of certain chemical agents and making recommendations for the protection of human health and safety (Public Law (Pub. L.) 91-121/441 (50 USC 1512)). DHHS has delegated this authority to CDC. In 1985, Congress passed Pub. L. 99-145 (50 USC 1521), which mandates destruction of the present stockpile of selected chemical agents by September 30, 1994. The specific agents are listed below. In the absence of federal regulatory standards, DOD developed safety and health standards for handling these agents. In reviewing these standards and making its recommendations, CDC sought the assistance of a working group of experts.
