Download as PDF wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 238 / Monday, December 13, 2010 / Notices was held under the auspices of the EPA Board of Scientific Counselors (BOSC), an advisory committee of independent scientists and engineers established by EPA to provide advice, information, and recommendations concerning practices and programs of the Office of Research and Development, including ORD’s research planning process, in accordance with provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C. App. 2 [http:// www.archives.gov/federal-register/laws/ fed-advisory-committee]) and related regulations. In August 2010, the BOSC provided comments on the case studies workshop (http://www.epa.gov/osp/ bosc/pdf/nano1008rpt.pdf). The Nanomaterial Case Studies: Nanoscale Titanium Dioxide in Water Treatment and in Topical Sunscreen [External Review Draft] (http:// cfpub.epa.gov/ncea/cfm/ recordisplay.cfm?deid=210206) was used as a starting point for the 2009 workshop. A key feature of the case studies is the comprehensive environmental assessment (CEA) framework, which takes a holistic view of specific applications of selected nanomaterials, beginning with the product life cycle and encompassing environmental fate and transport, exposure, and ecological as well as human health implications. CEA also includes a process component involving decision science methods, and this aspect of CEA was used in a workshop to identify and prioritize research or information needed to assess nanoscale titanium dioxide (nano-TiO2). It is important to note that the Nanomaterial Case Studies document and workshop were not intended to be ends in themselves, even though they may have value or be of interest in their own right. They were conceived as the first in a series of nanomaterial case studies and workshops to be used in developing and refining a long-term research strategy to support the comprehensive environmental assessment of selected nanomaterials for potential human health and ecological risks (U.S. EPA, 2009, 225004). Such a comprehensive strategy is expected to develop in an evolutionary process reflecting adjustments and modifications as additional nanomaterials are considered and new information becomes available. The purpose of the Public Information Exchange Meeting scheduled on January 4, 2011, is to afford an opportunity for EPA to receive comments and questions and to provide information on the EPA nanomaterial case studies and associated workshops, including their purpose and rationale. The Information VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:42 Dec 10, 2010 Jkt 223001 Exchange will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Auditorium of the EPA facility in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. ICF International, a contractor to EPA, will conduct a separate meeting, the ‘‘ICF International Nanomaterial Case Studies Workshop: Developing a Comprehensive Environmental Assessment Research Strategy for Nanoscale Silver,’’ at 3:45 p.m., January 4, 2011, in the same location. This workshop will be conducted with a selected set of invitee-only participants in a structured decision science process known as Nominal Group Technique (NGT), similar to the NGT process used in the 2009 workshop on nano-TiO2 (http://www.epa.gov/osp/bosc/pdf/ nano1005summ.pdf). The upcoming ICF workshop will use the EPA document Nanomaterial Case Study: Nanoscale Silver in Disinfectant Spray [External Review Draft] (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R–10/081, 2010, http:// cfpub.epa.gov/ncea/cfm/ recordisplay.cfm?deid=226723) as a starting point for identifying and prioritizing possible research directions related to nanoscale silver. The ICF workshop is expected to conclude by 1 p.m. on Friday, January 7, 2011. Although funded by EPA, the ICF workshop is being conducted independently of EPA so as to comply with provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). The ICF workshop will be open to public observers. Persons interested in obtaining more information about the workshop conducted by ICF International or in attending as an observer are asked to e-mail NanoWorkshop@icfi.com or call Ms. Amalia Marenberg at (919) 293–1624. Please indicate whether you are interested in attending the EPA Public Information Exchange Meeting or the ICF International NGT Workshop or both. II. How To Submit Comments The public comment period has closed for Nanomaterial Case Studies: Nanoscale Titanium Dioxide in Water Treatment and in Topical Sunscreen [External Review Draft] (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R–09/057, 2009, http://cfpub.epa.gov/ncea/cfm/ recordisplay.cfm?deid=210206), which has now been completed and posted as a final version (http://cfpub.epa.gov/ ncea/cfm/ recordisplay.cfm?deid=230972). Also closed is the public comment period for Nanomaterial Case Study: Nanoscale Silver in Disinfectant Spray [External PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77637 Review Draft] (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R–10/081, 2010, http:// cfpub.epa.gov/ncea/cfm/ recordisplay.cfm?deid=226723). However, comments on either of these documents, especially comments related to the approach used in developing the case studies and how they could be used in developing a comprehensive environmental assessment research strategy, are welcomed in connection with the EPA Public Information Exchange on the Nanomaterial Case Studies and may be used by EPA in evaluating whether or how to develop further case studies and workshops on nanomaterials. Comments may be submitted orally at specified times during the Public Information Exchange Meeting on the EPA Nanomaterial Case Studies on January 4, 2011. Comments may also be submitted in writing in advance of the meeting. Anyone who wishes to attend the meeting and/or submit comments orally or in writing should so indicate, preferably no later than December 28, 2010, by sending an e-mail to NanoWorkshop@icfi.com or by calling Ms. Amalia Marenberg at ICF International at (919) 293–1624.

FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION Granting of Request for Early Termination of the Waiting Period Under the Premerger Notification Rules Section 7A of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18a, as added by Title 11 of the Hart-Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, requires persons contemplating certain mergers or acquisitions to give the Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney General advance notice and to wait designated periods before consummation of such plans. Section 7A(b)(2) of the Act permits the agencies, in individual cases, to terminate this waiting period prior to its expiration and requires that notice of this action be published in the Federal Register. The following transactions were granted early termination of the waiting period provided by law and the premerger notification rules. The grants were made by the Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. Neither agency intends to take any action with respect to these proposed acquisitions during the applicable waiting period.
