generally limited to five minutes per individual or organization. 
Please note that this includes all individuals appearing either as part 
of, or on behalf of, an organization. While it is our intent to hear a 
full range of oral comments on the science and ethics issues under 
discussion, it is not our intent to permit organizations to expand the 
time limitations by having numerous individuals sign up separately to 
speak on their behalf. If additional time is available, further public 
comments may be possible.
    2. Written comments. Submit written comments prior to the meeting. 
For the HSRB to have the best opportunity to review and consider your 
comments as it deliberates on its report, you should submit your 
comments at least five business days prior to the beginning of this 
teleconference. If you submit comments after this date, those comments 
will be provided to the Board members, but you should recognize that 
the Board members may not have adequate time to consider those comments 
prior to making a decision. Thus, if you plan to submit written 
comments, the Agency strongly encourages you to submit such comments no 
later than noon, Eastern Time, Tuesday, May 17, 2011. You should submit 
your comments using the instructions in section I, under subsection C, 
``What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?'' In 
addition, the Agency also requests that persons submitting comments 
directly to the docket also provide a copy of their comments to Jim 
Downing or Lu-Ann Kleibacker listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION 
CONTACT. There is no limit on the length of written comments for 
consideration by the HSRB.
