Request for Comments The RoC Center invites written public comments on the expert panel’s recommendation on listing status for cobalt-tungsten carbide powders and hard metals and the scientific justification for the recommendation. All comments received will be posted on the RoC Web site. Persons submitting written comments are asked to include their name and contact information (affiliation, mailing address, telephone and facsimile numbers, e-mail, and sponsoring organization, if any) and send them to Dr. Lunn (see ADDRESSES above). The deadline for submission of written comments is March 30, 2009. Next Steps The RoC Center is in the process of finalizing the background document for cobalt-tungsten carbide powders and hard metals based upon the expert panel’s peer review comments and the public comments received (73FR60288). Persons can register free-of-charge with the NTP listserve (http:// ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/231) to receive notification when the final background document is posted on the RoC Web site (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/10091). As part of the RoC review process, two government groups will also conduct reviews of cobalt-tungsten carbide powders and hard metals; these meetings are not open to the public. Upon completion of these reviews, the NTP will (1) draft a substance profile for cobalt-tungsten carbide powders and hard metals that contains its listing recommendation for the 12th RoC and the scientific information supporting that recommendation, (2) solicit public comment on the draft substance profile, and (3) convene a meeting of the NTP Board of Scientific Counselors to peer review the draft substance profile.
