ACTION: Availability of ICCVAM Test Method Evaluation Report and Final Background Review Documents. SUMMARY: NICEATM announces availability of the ICCVAM Test Method Evaluation Report: In Vitro Ocular Toxicity Test Methods for Identifying Severe Irritants and Corrosives (NIH Publication 07–4517). The report describes four ocular toxicity test methods evaluated by ICCVAM: (1) The Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability [BCOP] test, (2) the Isolated Chicken Eye [ICE] test, (3) the Isolated Rabbit Eye [IRE] test, and (4) the Hen’s Egg Test—Chorioallantoic Membrane [HET–CAM]. The report includes ICCVAM’s (a) final test method recommendations on the use of these four in vitro test methods, (b) recommended test method protocols for future testing, (c) recommendations for further optimization and validation studies for these test methods, and (d) recommended reference substances for validation studies. The report recommends that the BCOP and ICE methods, with specific limitations for certain chemical classes and/or physical properties, can be used in a tiered testing strategy to determine ocular hazards, and substances that test positive can be classified as ocular corrosives or severe irritants without further testing in animals. The report also recommends that these in vitro test methods should be considered before using animals for ocular testing and used when determined appropriate. NICEATM also announces availability of the final Background Review Documents (BRDs) for the BCOP, ICE, IRE, and HET–CAM test methods (NIH Publications 06–4512, 06–4513, 06– 4514, and 06–4515, respectively). These BRDs provide the data and analyses used to assess the current validation status of these four test methods for identifying ocular corrosives and severe irritants. Electronic copies of the ICCVAM Test Method Evaluation Report and the four BRDs are available from the NICEATM/ ICCVAM Web site at http:// iccvam.niehs.nih.gov or by contacting NICEATM (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). The ICCVAM Test Method Evaluation Report and the final BRDs have been forwarded to U.S. Federal agencies for regulatory and other acceptance considerations where applicable. Responses will be posted on the ICCVAM/NICEATM Web site as they are received. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. William S. Stokes, Director, NICEATM, E:\FR\FM\26NON1.SGM 26NON1
