The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) was established in Lyon, France in 1965 as a specialized cancer research agency of the World Health Organization, with founding members Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, and United States. Currently, IARC has 25 member countries. Since 1970 the IARC Monographs Program, created by Lorenzo Tomatis, MD, has been evaluating chemical substances, agents, exposure circumstances, and lifestyle factors for evidence of carcinogenicity. IARC Monographs provide a unique and valuable objective international health service to evaluate and inform the public about cancer hazards. IARC Working Group (WG) meetings held in Lyon, France, thrice a year, are comprised of independent scientists from throughout the world, providing a truly international perspective. Meetings are openly transparent and members are vetted for conflicts of interest. The primary objective of the Program is to publish in the form of agent/substance‐oriented Monographs, critical reviews and scientific evaluations written by an international WG of experts on evidence of carcinogenicity for a wide range of human exposures. IARC staff coordinates the process and provides scientific and material support to WGs. The authors of this commentary have participated in the IARC Monographs Program meetings. Also, Harri Vainio and James Huff have served
