SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES I. Process of Obtaining Candidates for Consideration EPA’s contractor, ERG, is assembling a panel of scientific experts to evaluate the ‘‘Proposed Modeling Approaches for a Health-Based Benchmark for Lead in Drinking Water’’ report. EPA, through its contractor, is seeking peer reviewers who possess a strong background and demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following areas: (1) Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic modeling, particularly with regard to lead, (2) environmental lead exposure analyses, particularly with regard to probabilistic modeling. EPA published a request for nominations of peer reviewers in a January 19, 2017, Federal Register notice (82 FR 6546). The nomination period closed on February 21,2017. ERG also conducted an independent search for scientific experts to augment the list of publicallynominated candidates. In total, ERG evaluated 26 candidates that were nominated during the public nomination period or identified independently by ERG. Screening Process ERG considered and screened all candidates against the selection criteria, which include the following: (1) Demonstrated expertise through relevant peer reviewed publications; (2) professional accomplishments and recognition by professional societies; (3) demonstrated ability to work constructively and effectively in a committee setting; (4) absence of financial conflicts of interest; (5) no actual conflicts of interest or appearance of lack of impartiality; (6) willingness to commit adequate time for the thorough review of the draft report; and (7) availability to participate in-person in a one-day or two-day peer review meeting in the Washington, DC, metro area, projected to occur in the summer of 2017 (exact date will be published in the Federal Register at least 30 days prior to the external peer review meeting). Following the screening process, the contractor narrowed the list VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:36 Mar 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 of potential reviewers to 13 candidates. EPA is now soliciting comments on this interim list. EPA requests that the public provide relevant information or documentation on the expertise that the contractor should consider in evaluating these candidates. ERG will consider all comments received in response to this notice in the selection of the final peer review panel, which will collectively provide appropriate expertise spanning the subject matter areas covered by the report and, to the extent feasible, best provide a balance of perspectives. See section II of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice for the interim list of candidates. Responsibilities of Peer Reviewers Peer reviewers will be charged with evaluating and preparing written comments on the lead modeling report. ERG will provide reviewers with a summary and compilation of public comments on the report submitted to EPA’s docket (ID number EPA–HQ– OW–2016–0686) for consideration. Reviewers will participate in the public meeting expected to be held in the Washington, DC, metro area in the summer of 2017 (exact date to be determined), to discuss the scientific basis supporting these materials. Following the meeting, ERG will provide a report to EPA of the peer reviewer’s evaluation of the scientific and technical merit of the lead modeling report and their responses to the charge questions. EPA will make the final expert peer review report available to the public (exact date to be determined). In preparing the final lead modeling report, EPA will consider the expert peer review report as well as the written public comments submitted to the docket. II. Interim List of Peer Reviewers ERG is considering the following candidates for the peer review panel. Biosketches are available through the docket at https://www.regulations.gov (Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OW–2016– 0686). After review and consideration of public comments on the interim list of candidates being considered, ERG will select the final peer reviewers from this interim list, who will, collectively, best provide expertise spanning the areas of knowledge and experience described in the Federal Register notice (82 FR 6546) and, to the extent feasible, best provide a balance of perspectives. EPA will announce the peer review panel meeting date, location and observer registration details, along with the final list of peer reviewers selected by ERG, at least 30 days prior to the meeting.
