Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 21 / Thursday, January 31, 2008 / Notices public will be requested to provide relevant information or other documentation on nominees that the SAB Staff Office should consider in evaluating candidates. For the EPA SAB Staff Office, a balanced subcommittee or review panel includes candidates who possess the necessary domains of knowledge, the relevant scientific perspectives (which, among other factors, can be influenced by work history and affiliation), and the collective breadth of experience to adequately address the charge. In establishing the final SAB PM Research Centers Program Review Panel, the SAB Staff Office will consider public comments on the ‘‘Short List’’ of candidates, information provided by the candidates themselves, and background information independently gathered by the SAB Staff Office. Specific criteria to be used for Panel membership include: (a) Scientific and/or technical expertise, knowledge, and experience (primary factors); (b) availability and willingness to serve; (c) absence of financial conflicts of interest; (d) absence of an appearance of a lack of impartiality; and (e) skills working in committees, subcommittees and advisory panels; and, for the Panel as a whole, (f) diversity of, and balance among, scientific expertise, viewpoints, etc. The SAB Staff Office’s evaluation of an absence of financial conflicts of interest will include a review of the ‘‘Confidential Financial Disclosure Form for Special Government Employees Serving on Federal Advisory Committees at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’’ (EPA Form 3110– 48). This confidential form allows Government officials to determine whether there is a statutory conflict between that person’s public responsibilities (which includes membership on an EPA Federal advisory committee) and private interests and activities, or the appearance of a lack of impartiality, as defined by Federal regulation. The form may be viewed and downloaded from the following SAB Web site: http:// yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/ Web/Ethics?OpenDocument. The approved policy under which the EPA SAB Office selects subcommittees and review panels is described in the following document: Overview of the Panel Formation Process at the Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board (EPA–SAB–EC– 02–010, September 2002), which is posted on the SAB Web site: http:// yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/ WebSABSO/ OverviewPanelForm?OpenDocument.

ACTION: Notice of Decision to Waive Requirements of Sections 127(a) and (d) of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002. Notice of Availability of Associated OSTP Director’s Decision Memorandum and Interagency Technical Evaluation Report. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given of the determination, under Section 127(f) of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (the Act), to waive the requirements of Section 127(a) and (d) of the Act. Notice is also given that the Associated Decision Memorandum and an interagency technical analysis report are available on the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Web site at http://www.ostp.gov/KI. Section 127(a) of the Act directed the President to establish a Potassium Iodide (KI) distribution program, under which State and local governments could receive KI tablets for distribution to the population in the 20 mile radius surrounding nuclear power plants (NPPs). The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) already has such a program for the 10 mile emergency planning zones surrounding NPPs, so Section 127(a) effectively extended that program to the 10–20 mile range. Through Section 127(f), Congress authorized the President to waive this distribution requirement if there exists ‘‘an alternative and more effective prophylaxis or preventive measures for adverse thyroid conditions that may result from the release of radionuclides from nuclear power plants.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On July 3, 2007, the President delegated the Section 127(f) waiver authority to the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy. On July 30, 2007, to help inform his decision, the OSTP Director requested the Federal Radiological Policy Coordinating Committee (FRPCC) to provide a technical evaluation of the issues surrounding Section 127. The FRPCC is an interagency organization, with membership from 17 Federal agencies, established to coordinate Federal responsibilities for assisting State and local governments in emergency planning and preparedness for peacetime nuclear emergencies. The FRPCC transmitted its final technical evaluation paper to the OSTP Director on October 23, 2007. On January 22, 2008, the OSTP Director executed his final decision pursuant to the Section 127(f) delegation. The complete Decision Memorandum, as well as the FRPCC technical information paper, is available on the OSTP Web site at http:// www.ostp.gov/KI. The OSTP Director’s determination waived Section 127(f) because a more effective preventive measure does exist for the extended zone covered by the Act, namely avoidance of exposure altogether through evacuation of the potentially affected population and interdiction of contaminated food. Analysis of radiological release events that could lead to adverse thyroid conditions beyond the current 10 mile zone shows that limiting or avoiding exposure to radiation through these mechanisms is practical and much more effective than the administration of KI in the proposed extended zone. DATES: The Decision Memorandum was executed on January 22, 2008. Associated documents will be available on the OSTP Web site on January 31, 2008. Questions concerning this Notice should be sent to OSTP by e-mail at comments@ostp.eop.gov or by Fax at 202–456–6027. ADDRESSES: Background Section 127(a) of the Act directs the President to establish a KI distribution program as discussed above. Section 127(b) of the Act calls for State and local authorities to submit their KI stockpile plans to the President. Section 127(c) requires the President to issue guidelines for the stockpiling of KI tablets. Section 127(d) requires the Federal government to undertake efforts to make states and localities aware of the availability of KI under 127(a). Section 127(e) requires the President to E:\FR\FM\31JAN1.SGM 31JAN1
