This action provides notice of availability, for public review and comment, of proposed AEGL values and underlying supporting documents for 62 hazardous chemicals. These AEGL values represent the 11th set of exposure levels proposed and published by the NAC/AEGL Committee. These 11 sets of AEGL values cover 239 hazardous chemicals. Background information on the AEGL Program may be found in the earlier Federal Register notices available in regulations.gov or on the AEGL website (http://www.epa.gov/ oppt/aegl). Following public review and comment, the NAC/AEGL Committee will reconvene to consider relevant comments, data, and information that may have an impact on the NAC/AEGL Committee’s position and will again seek consensus for the establishment of interim AEGL values. Although the interim AEGL values will be available to Federal, State, and local agencies and to organizations in the private sector as biological reference values, it is intended to have them reviewed by a subcommittee of the National Academies (NAS). The NAS subcommittee will serve as a peer review of the interim AEGL values and as the final arbiter in the resolution of issues regarding the AEGL values, and the data and basic methodology used for setting AEGL values. Following concurrence, final AEGL values will be published under the auspices of NAS. III. List of Chemicals On behalf of the NAC/AEGL Committee, EPA is providing an opportunity for public comment on the proposed AEGL values for the 62 hazardous chemicals identified in the table in this unit.

II. What Action is the Agency Taking?

    EPA's Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances (OPPTS) 
provided notice in the Federal Register of October 31, 1995 (60 FR 
55376) (FRL-4987-3) of the establishment of the NAC/AEGL Committee with 
the stated charter objective as ``the efficient and effective 
development of AEGLs and the preparation of supplementary qualitative 
information on the hazardous substances for Federal, State, and Local 
agencies and organizations in the private sector concerned with 
[chemical] emergency planning, prevention, and response.'' The NAC/AEGL 
Committee is a discretionary Federal advisory committee formed with the 
intent to develop AEGL values for hazardous chemicals through the 
combined efforts of stakeholder members from both the public and 
private sectors in a cost-effective approach that avoids duplication of 
efforts and provides uniform values, while employing the most 
scientifically sound methods available.
    This action provides notice of availability, for public review and 
comment, of proposed AEGL values and underlying supporting documents 
for 62 hazardous chemicals. These AEGL values represent the 11\th\ set 
of exposure levels proposed and published by the NAC/AEGL Committee. 
These 11 sets of AEGL values cover 239 hazardous chemicals. Background 
information on the AEGL Program may be found in the earlier Federal 
Register notices available in regulations.gov or on the AEGL website 
(http://www.epa.gov/oppt/aegl).
    Following public review and comment, the NAC/AEGL Committee will 
reconvene to consider relevant comments, data, and information that may 
have an impact on the NAC/AEGL Committee's position and will again seek 
consensus for the establishment of interim AEGL values. Although the 
interim AEGL values will be available to Federal, State, and local 
agencies and to organizations in the private sector as biological 
reference values, it is intended to have them reviewed by a 
subcommittee of the National Academies (NAS). The NAS subcommittee will 
serve as a peer review of the interim AEGL values and as the final 
arbiter in the resolution of issues regarding the AEGL values, and the 
data and basic methodology used for setting AEGL values. Following 
concurrence, final AEGL values will be published under the auspices of 
NAS.
