Respondents/Affected Entities: Producers of Carbon Black, Cyanide, Ethylene or Spandex. Estimated Number of Respondents: 72. Frequency of Response: Annually, semiannually and on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 13,533 hours. Estimated Total Annual Costs: $1,439,150, which includes $0 annualized capital/startup costs, $359,000 annual O&M costs, and $1,080,150 annual labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 20,393 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is because the previous ICR included some items in the inventory (e.g., control equipment related) that are not consistent with the concept of burden. Additionally, the previous ICR overestimated the time and frequency to prepare startup, shutdown and malfunction (SS&M) reports, and the time to store, file and maintain records and to retrieve records and reports. The Capital/Startup costs as calculated in this ICR’s section 6(b)(iii) compared with the costs in the previous ICR have decreased. Since the previous ICR covered initial compliance with the standard, the costs were mostly associated with the purchase of monitors and control equipment. Since there are no new sources for the three years covered by this ICR, the costs will be only be O&M costs. Dated: July 19, 2005. Oscar Morales, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

ACTION: Supplemental notice; reopening of public comment period. AGENCY: SUMMARY: On June 22, 2005 (70 FR 36167), EPA’s Office of Environmental Justice announced a solicitation for VerDate jul<14>2003 13:40 Jul 27, 2005 Jkt 205001 public comment on the draft: (1) ‘‘Framework for Integrating Environmental Justice;’’ and (2) ‘‘Environmental Justice Strategic Plan Outline,’’ which includes proposed Environmental Justice Priorities (‘‘EJ Priorities’’). The Framework for Integrating Environmental Justice will be the foundation for the Environmental Justice Strategic Plan for FY2006–2011. The Environmental Justice Strategic Plan Outline identifies the anticipated structure of the EJ Strategic Plan. EPA is drafting the Environmental Justice Strategic Plan to integrate its environmental justice efforts more fully into the Agency’s existing programs and operations, including its 5-year planning and budgeting processes. This supplemental notice announces an extension to the public comment period. DATES: The public comment period is extended to August 15, 2005. ADDRESSES: Comments should be addressed to Mr. Barry E. Hill, Director, Office of Environmental Justice, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Mail Code 2201A, Ariel Rios South Building, Room 2226, Washington, DC 20460–0001. You may also e-mail comments to hill.barry@epa.gov. Please identify e-mailed comments with the phrase ‘‘EJ Strategic Plan Comments’’ in the subject line. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Danny Gogal, Senior Environmental Protection Specialist, EPA Office of Environmental Justice, (202) 564–2576, gogal.danny@epa.gov, or Delleane McKenzie, Senior Program Analyst, EPA Office of Environmental Justice, (202) 564–6358, mckenzie.delleane@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To provide additional time for the public to comment and in response to requests for additional time, EPA is extending the comment period until August 15, 2005. The draft Framework identifies the proposed key elements of the EJ Strategic Plan that will help the Agency track progress and benchmark its national environmental justice program objectives. The draft Framework also describes the proposed link between the Environmental Justice Action Plans of the Agency’s 10 regional offices and the substantive headquarters program offices (e.g., Office of Air and Radiation, Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response) and the National Environmental Justice Priorities and targets established in the EJ Strategic Plan. The draft Outline identifies the ‘‘mission’’ and ‘‘vision’’ that will guide the Environmental Justice Strategic Plan and identifies where specific PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43691 Environmental Justice Strategic Targets will be included, once they are developed. The Outline also includes 12 potential National EJ Priorities, which would help focus attention on critical human health and environmental issues faced by communities with disproportionate impacts (e.g., asthma reduction, healthy schools, safe drinking water). While the regional offices will continue to take action on a wide range of environmental justice issues, using a spectrum of strategies including cross-cutting approaches (e.g., community capacity-building, grants, training) to address local needs, we would like to select 5–7 priorities for heightened national attention. Therefore, in addition to providing comments on the overall Outline, we ask that you rank the potential priorities (1 = highest priority, 12 = lowest priority) and submit your ranking with your other comments. If you have additional suggested priorities, please include those as well. The draft ‘‘Framework for Integrating Environmental Justice’’ and the ‘‘Environmental Justice Strategic Plan Outline,’’ along with responses to anticipated questions and a one-page fact sheet, are available online at: http://www.epa.gov/compliance/ resources/reports/ej.html. A hardcopy of these documents is available upon request. Dated: July 25, 2005. Barry E. Hill, Director, Office of Environmental Justice.

ACTION: Notice of public comment period. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing a 30-day public comment period for the external review draft document titled, ‘‘Approaches for the Application of Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Models and Supporting Data in Risk Assessment’’ (EPA/600/R–05/ 043A). The draft document was prepared by the EPA’s National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) within EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD). EPA also anticipates that Versar, Inc., an EPA contractor for external scientific peer review, will convene a panel of experts and organize and conduct an external peer-review workshop. This workshop will be announced in a separate Federal Register notice, once EPA is notified by Versar, Inc., of the date and location for the workshop. The public comment period and the external peer-review workshop are separate processes that provide opportunities for all interested parties to comment on the document. DATES: The 30-day public comment period begins July 28, 2005, and ends August 29, 2005. Technical comments should be in writing and must be received by EPA by August 29, 2005. ADDRESSES: The draft document and EPA’s peer-review charge are available primarily via the Internet on the National Center for Environmental Assessment’s home page under the VerDate jul<14>2003 13:40 Jul 27, 2005 Jkt 205001 Recent Additions and Publications menus at http://www.epa.gov/ncea.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Information About the Document Physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models represent an important class of dosimetry models that are useful for predicting internal dose at target organs for risk assessment applications. Doseresponse relationships that appear unclear or confusing at the administered dose level can become more understandable when expressed on the basis of internal dose of the chemical. To predict internal dose level, PBPK models use pharmacokinetic data to construct mathematical representations of biological processes associated with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of compounds. With the appropriate data, these models can be used to extrapolate across species and exposure scenarios, and address various sources of uncertainty in risk assessments. This external review draft document addresses the following questions: (1) Why do risk assessors need PBPK models; (2) How can these models be used in risk assessments; and (3) What are the characteristics of acceptable PBPK models for use in risk assessment?
