SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) [42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.] amended the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA or Superfund) [42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.] by establishing certain requirements for ATSDR and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with regard to hazardous substances that are most commonly found at facilities on the CERCLA National Priorities List (NPL). Among these statutory requirements is a mandate for the Administrator of ATSDR to prepare toxicological profiles for each substance included on the Priority List of Hazardous Substances. This list has identified 275 hazardous substances that ATSDR and EPA determined pose the most significant potential threat to human health. The availability of the revised list of the 275 priority substances was announced in the Federal Register on March 6, 2008 (73 FR 12178). For previous versions of the list of substances, see Federal Register notices dated April 17, 1987 (52 FR 12866); October 20, 1988 (53 FR 41280); October 26, 1989 (54 FR 43619); October 17, 1990 (55 FR 42067); October 17, 1991 (56 FR 52166); October 28, 1992 (57 FR 48801); February 28, 1994 (59 FR 9486); April 29, 1996 (61 FR 18744; November 17, 1997 (62 FR 61332); October 21, 1999 (64 FR 56792); October 25, 2001 (66 FR 54014); November 7, 2003 (68 FR 63098); and December 7, 2005 (70 FR 70284). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: Proposed Substances To Be Evaluated for Set 23 Toxicological Profiles Each year, ATSDR develops a list of priority substances that will be evaluated for toxicological profile development. This list was compiled, on the basis of ATSDR’s Priority List of Hazardous Substances, with consideration of the amount of relevance of newly published scientific E:\FR\FM\02DEN1.SGM 02DEN1 73330 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 2, 2008 / Notices literature.

Submission of Nominations for the Evaluation Set 23 Proposed Substances: Today’s notice also invites voluntary public nominations for substances not listed in this notice. Nominations are most useful if they include the full name, title, affiliation, e-mail address and telephone number of the nominator.

Profiles

AGENCY: Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION: Request for comments on the proposed substances to be evaluated 
for Set 23 toxicological profiles.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces the list of proposed substances that 
will be evaluated for CERCLA Set 23 toxicological profile development. 
ATSDR's Division of Toxicology and Environmental Medicine is soliciting 
public nominations from the list of proposed substances to be evaluated 
for toxicological profile development. ATSDR also will consider the 
evaluation of any additional substances that may have public health 
implications.

DATES: Nominations must be submitted by December 24th, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Nominations may be submitted electronically, by mail, or by 
facsimile. Refer to the section Submission of Nominations (below) for 
specific addresses and/or the facsimile number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization 
Act of 1986 (SARA) [42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.] amended the Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA 
or Superfund) [42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.] by establishing certain 
requirements for ATSDR and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) with regard to hazardous substances that are most commonly found 
at facilities on the CERCLA National Priorities List (NPL). Among these 
statutory requirements is a mandate for the Administrator of ATSDR to 
prepare toxicological profiles for each substance included on the 
Priority List of Hazardous Substances. This list has identified 275 
hazardous substances that ATSDR and EPA determined pose the most 
significant potential threat to human health. The availability of the 
revised list of the 275 priority substances was announced in the 
Federal Register on March 6, 2008 (73 FR 12178). For previous versions 
of the list of substances, see Federal Register notices dated April 17, 
1987 (52 FR 12866); October 20, 1988 (53 FR 41280); October 26, 1989 
(54 FR 43619); October 17, 1990 (55 FR 42067); October 17, 1991 (56 FR 
52166); October 28, 1992 (57 FR 48801); February 28, 1994 (59 FR 9486); 
April 29, 1996 (61 FR 18744; November 17, 1997 (62 FR 61332); October 
21, 1999 (64 FR 56792); October 25, 2001 (66 FR 54014); November 7, 
2003 (68 FR 63098); and December 7, 2005 (70 FR 70284).

Proposed Substances To Be Evaluated for Set 23 Toxicological Profiles

    Each year, ATSDR develops a list of priority substances that will 
be evaluated for toxicological profile development. This list was 
compiled, on the basis of ATSDR's Priority List of Hazardous 
Substances, with consideration of the amount of relevance of newly 
published scientific
