Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92–463, notice is hereby given that the SAB Asbestos Committee will hold a public meeting to provide consultative advice on the Agency’s proposed approach for the estimation of cancer potency factors for inhalation exposure to asbestos.

Background: The EPA Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) has developed a proposed approach for an incremental improvement to the current method that EPA employs for estimating cancer risk from inhalation exposure to asbestos at Superfund sites.

OSWER has requested the SAB provide consultative advice on its Proposed Approach for Estimation of Bin-Specific Cancer Potency Factors for Inhalation Exposure to Asbestos. After receiving advice from the SAB, OSWER plans to revise the proposed approach, and seek additional advice from SAB on the revised approach. In response to OSWER’s request, the SAB Staff Office announced that it was forming an Asbestos Committee in 71 FR no. 162 (pages 48926–48927) and 72 FR no. 207 (pages 60844–60845).
