ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document announces the availability of and solicits public comment on EPA’s draft policies and procedures for initial screening under the Agency’s Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP). The EDSP is established under section 408(p) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), which requires endocrine screening of all pesticide chemicals and was established in response to growing scientific evidence that humans, domestic animals, and fish and wildlife species have exhibited adverse health consequences from exposure to environmental chemicals that interact with their endocrine systems. This document provides specific details on the policies and the related procedures that EPA is considering adopting for initial screening under the EDSP. In general, the Agency has tried to develop policies that could be used in subsequent data collection efforts. However, EPA expects that these policies may be modified as a result of the Agency’s experience applying them to the first chemicals to undergo testing. This document also discusses the statutory requirements associated with and format of the test orders, as well as EPA’s procedures for fair and equitable sharing of test costs and data confidentiality. EPA will also be holding a public meeting to discuss these policies and procedures. A separate Federal Register document announced the details of the public meeting. DATES: Comments must be received on or before February 11, 2008.
