ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [OPPT–2004–0109 FRL–7716–9] Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program; Chemical Selection Approach for Initial Round of Screening Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice describes the approach EPA plans to use for selecting the first group of chemicals to be screened in the Agency’s Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP). The Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA) amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) to direct EPA to develop a chemical screening program using appropriate validated test systems and other scientifically relevant information to determine whether certain substances may have hormonal effects. In December 2002, EPA sought comment on its approach for selecting the initial list of chemicals for which testing will be required under the EDSP. Following review and revision based on the public comments, EPA is now describing the approach that it intends to use for PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56449 selecting the chemicals for the initial list. For this initial approach, as recommended by scientific advisory committees, EPA will select 50 to 100 chemicals. The chemicals will be selected based on their relatively high potential for human exposure rather than using a combination of exposureand effects-related factors. The scope of this first group of chemicals to be tested includes pesticide active ingredients and High Production Volume (HPV) chemicals used as pesticide inerts. This will allow EPA to focus its initial screening efforts on a smaller and more manageable universe of chemicals that emphasizes the early attention to the pesticide chemicals that Congress specifically mandated EPA to test for possible endocrine effects. This notice does not identify the initial list of chemicals, nor does it describe other aspects of the EDSP such as the administrative procedures EPA will use to require testing, the validated tests and battery that will be included in the EDSP, or the timeframe for requiring the testing or receiving the data. The initial chemical list and the details of the EDSP process that will apply to the initial chemical list will be addressed in subsequent notices published in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information A. Does this Action Apply to Me? This action is directed to the public in general. This action may, however, be of interest if you produce, manufacture, use, consume, work with, or import pesticide chemicals, substances that may have an effect cumulative to an effect of a pesticide, or substances found in sources of drinking water. To determine whether you or your business may be affected by this action, you should carefully examine section 408(p) of FFDCA, 21 U.S.C. 346a(p), and the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), 42 E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
