ACTION: Notice. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or Agency) Science Advisory Board (SAB) Staff Office is seeking nominations of nationally recognized experts for consideration of membership on two new Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) Review Panels. One Review Panel will provide advice to EPA on primary (human healthbased) air quality standards for oxides of nitrogen (NOX) and sulfur oxides (SOX), while the second will focus on secondary (welfare-based) standards. DATES: New nominations should be submitted by August 28, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Any member of the public wishing further information regarding this Request for Nominations may contact Mr. Fred Butterfield, Designated Federal Officer (DFO), EPA Science Advisory Board (1400F), U.S. Environmental Protection VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:19 Aug 04, 2006 Jkt 208001 Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20460; via telephone/voice mail: (202) 343–9994; fax: (202) 233–0643; or e-mail at: butterfield.fred@epa.gov. General information concerning the CASAC or the EPA Science Advisory Board can be found on the EPA Web site at: http:// www.epa.gov/sab. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) was established under section 109(d)(2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) (42 U.S.C. 7409) as an independent scientific advisory committee. The chartered CASAC provides advice, information and recommendations on the scientific and technical aspects of air quality criteria and national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) under sections 108 and 109 of the Act. Section 109(d)(1) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) requires that EPA carry out a periodic review and revision, as appropriate, of the air quality criteria and the NAAQS for the six criteria air pollutants. EPA is currently preparing to review the air quality criteria for NOX and SOX. The SAB Staff Office is establishing two separate CASAC NOX and SOX Review Panels. One will provide advice to EPA on primary (human health-based) air quality standards for oxides of nitrogen (NOX) and sulfur oxides (SOX), while the second will focus on secondary (welfare-based) standards. The CASAC NOX and SOX Review Panels will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. The CASAC NOX and SOX Review Panels will each consist of the seven members of the chartered CASAC supplemented by additional subject matter experts. This Federal Register notice seeks nominations for the subject matter experts described below. The CASAC NOX and SOX Review Panels will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate EPA procedural policies. Expertise Sought: The SAB Staff Office requests nominees who are nationally-recognized experts regarding NOX and SOX in one or more of the following disciplines. (1) CASAC Primary (Health-Based) Review Panel (a) Atmospheric Science. Expertise in physical and chemical properties of nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides; atmospheric processes involved in their formation and transport on urban to global scales; transformation of these pollutants in the atmosphere; and movement of the pollutants between media through deposition and other PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44695 such mechanisms. Also, expertise in the evaluation of natural and anthropogenic sources and emissions of nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides and resulting ambient levels due to natural sources; pertinent monitoring or measurement methods for these pollutants; and spatial and temporal trends in their atmospheric concentrations. (b) Human Health Exposure and Risk Assessment/Modeling. Expertise in measuring human population exposure to nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides, or in modeling human population exposure to pollutants from ambient and indoor sources. Expertise in human health risk analysis modeling for nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides related to respiratory and other noncancer health effects. (c) Dosimetry. Expertise in evaluation of the dosimetry of animal and human subjects, including identification of factors determining differential patterns of inhalation and/or deposition/uptake in respiratory tract regions that may contribute to differential susceptibility of human population subgroups and animal-to-human dosimetry extrapolations. (d) Toxicology. Expertise in evaluation of experimental laboratory animal studies and in vitro studies of the effects of sulfur oxides and/or oxides of nitrogen on pulmonary and extra-pulmonary (e.g., cardiovascular, immunological) endpoints. (e) Controlled Human Exposure. Expertise in evaluations of controlled human exposure studies of the effects of nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides on healthy and compromised (e.g., having pertinent preexisting disease such as asthma) human adults and children, including physicians with experience in the clinical treatment of asthma and chronic lung diseases. (f) Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Expertise in epidemiologic evaluation of the effects of exposures to ambient nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides and/ or other major air pollutants (e.g., particulate matter, ozone, carbon monoxide) on human population groups, including mortality and morbidity effects (e.g., respiratory symptoms, lung function decrements, asthma medication use, emergency department visits, respiratory-related hospital admissions). Also, expertise in associated biostatistics and/or health risk analysis. (2) CASAC Secondary (Welfare-Based) Review Panel (a) Atmospheric Science.
