Request for Comment EPA seeks comments on several aspects in the implementation of the expedited methods approval process. The information and comments submitted in response to this notice will be considered in determining the final details of the implementation process. Specifically, EPA seeks comments on the following: 1. EPA requests comment on whether a comprehensive list of methods approved under the expedited process should be publicly maintained. If such a list is desirable, then how should EPA make it available? • As an appendix in the CFR; • On an EPA Web page; • As a table or fact sheet available from an EPA designated contact; • Using a combination of these approaches or other suggestions. 2. EPA requests comment on the type of information that should be included in the Federal Register notice when new method approvals are published using the expedited process. Is a list of the methods being approved sufficient or should the notice include additional information? If additional information is suggested, please indicate the types of information that are desirable and why. 3. EPA requests comment concerning the usefulness of amending future regulatory text to describe where a list of methods approved using the expedited process can be obtained. If such a change is desired, should a reference to the list be included: • With each methods table; • In 40 CFR 141.27 under Alternate Test Methods. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:22 Apr 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 • Is there a better suggestion? 4. EPA requests comment on the format of the table that lists methods approved using the expedited approval process. Does the example provided in this notice provide enough information in a usable format or are there better suggestions for listing the information? 5. EPA invites Primacy Agencies to comment on how methods approved under this new procedure will be implemented in their programs and if there are concerns that EPA can address when implementing this new approval process (in order to simplify or expedite Primacy Agency acceptance of the alternative methods).
