ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA will hold a public meeting to give the stakeholders in the Voluntary Childrens Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP) and interested members of the public an opportunity to comment on the modifications the Agency intends to make to VCCEP. The modifications are based on the responses the Agency received to its request for comment on the implementation of the VCCEP pilot. The modifications will primarily address the timeliness and efficiency issues of the program in order to increase its productivity and ability to provide information to the public on the potential risks to children of exposure to certain chemicals. The meeting will also provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the use of the modified VCCEP approach to address certain data and assessment needs identified in EPA’s review of high production volume (HPV) and mid production volume (MPV) chemicals under its Chemical Assessment and Management Program (ChAMP).
