ACTION: Request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Murine Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA) is the first alternative test method evaluated and recommended by the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM). It was subsequently accepted by regulatory authorities to determine the allergic contact dermatitis potential of chemicals and products. In January 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) submitted a nomination requesting that NICEATM and ICCVAM assess the validation status of (1) The LLNA as a stand-alone assay for potency determination for hazard classification purposes; (2) modified LLNA protocols; (3) the LLNA limit test; (4) the use of LLNA to test mixtures, aqueous solutions, and metals; and (5) the applicability domain for LLNA. In order to facilitate the review of the modified LLNA protocols, ICCVAM proposed developing performance standards for the LLNA. In May 2007, a Federal Register notice was published (Vol. 72, No. 95, pages 27815–27817, May 17, 2007) requesting comments and data relevant to these nominated activities. In June 2007, the Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods (SACATM) endorsed the nominated activities as high priorities for ICCVAM. In response to SACATM comments, along with those provided by the public in response to the previous Federal Register notice, ICCVAM also endorsed these activities as high priorities. ICCVAM subsequently prepared draft performance standards for the LLNA and now requests public comments on this draft document, which is available on the NICEATM/ICCVAM Web site at: (http://iccvam.niehs.nih.gov/methods/ immunotox/immunotox.htm) or by contacting NICEATM (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT below). DATES: Submit comments on or before October 29, 2007. ADDRESSES: Dr. William S. Stokes, NICEATM Director, NIEHS, P.O. Box PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12233, MD EC–17, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709, (fax) 919–541–0947, (email) niceatm@niehs.nih.gov. Courier address: NICEATM, 79 T.W. Alexander Drive, Building 4401, Room 3128, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. Responses can be submitted electronically at the ICCVAM–NICEATM Web site: http:// iccvam.niehs.nih.gov/contact/ FR_pubcomment.htm or by e-mail, mail, or fax. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Other correspondence should be directed to Dr. William S. Stokes (919– 541–2384 or niceatm@niehs.nih.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The LLNA is an alternative test method used for skin sensitization testing that reduces the number of animals needed, reduces the time required for testing, and can substantially reduce or avoid pain and distress associated with traditional guinea pig testing methods. The LLNA was the first alternative test method evaluated and recommended by ICCVAM and based on the recommendations of ICCVAM and an independent scientific peer review panel, the LLNA has been accepted by U.S. and international regulatory authorities as an alternative to the guinea pig maximization test and Buehler test for assessing allergic contact dermatitis (EPA 2003; ISO 2002; OECD 2002). Since 2003, ICCVAM has routinely developed performance standards for test methods; however, because the concept of performance standards was not developed by ICCVAM until 2003, they were not developed during the ICCVAM evaluation of the LLNA in 1998 (NIH Publication No. 99–4494, available: (http://iccvam.niehs.nih.gov/docs/ immunotox_docs/llna/llnarep.pdf). In January 2007, CSPC submitted a nomination requesting that NICEATM and ICCVAM assess the validation status of (1) The LLNA as a stand-alone assay for potency determination for classification purposes; (2) modified LLNA protocols; (3) the LLNA limit test; (4) the use of LLNA to test mixtures, aqueous solutions, and metals; and (5) the applicability domain for LLNA. ICCVAM endorsed the nomination and also decided to develop performance standards to facilitate evaluation of modified LLNA protocols to the traditional LLNA. In May 2007, a Federal Register notice was published requesting comments and data relevant to these activities (Vol. 72, No. 95, pages 27815–27817, May 17, 2007; available, E:\FR\FM\12SEN1.SGM 12SEN1
