ACTION: Notice of meeting. AGENCY: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (‘‘CPSC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) announces the fifth meeting of the Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel (CHAP) on phthalates and phthalate substitutes.

L. 110–314). DATES: The meeting will be held on Monday, July 25, 2011, and Tuesday, July 26, 2011. The meeting will begin at approximately 8 a.m. on both days.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 108 of the CPSIA permanently prohibits the sale of any ‘‘children’s toy or child care article’’ containing more than 0.1 percent of each of three specified phthalates—di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP). Section 108 of the CPSIA also prohibits, on an interim basis, the sale of any ‘‘children’s toy that can be placed in a child’s SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 mouth’’ or ‘‘child care article’’ containing more than 0.1 percent of each of three additional phthalates— diisononyl phthalate (DINP), diisodecyl phthalate (DIDP), and di-n-octyl phthalate (DNOP). Moreover, section 108 of the CPSIA requires the Commission to convene a CHAP ‘‘to study the effects on children’s health of all phthalates and phthalate alternatives as used in children’s toys and child care articles.’’ The CPSIA requires the CHAP to complete an examination of the full range of phthalates that are used in products for children and: • Examine all of the potential health effects (including endocrine disrupting effects) of the full range of phthalates; • Consider the potential health effects of each of these phthalates, both in isolation and in combination with other phthalates; • Examine the likely levels of children’s, pregnant women’s, and others’ exposure to phthalates, based upon a reasonable estimation of normal and foreseeable use and abuse of such products; • Consider the cumulative effect of total exposure to phthalates, from children’s products and from other sources, such as personal care products; • Review all relevant data, including the most recent, best available, peerreviewed, scientific studies of these phthalates and phthalate alternatives that employ objective data-collection practices or employ other objective methods; • Consider the health effects of phthalates not only from ingestion but also as a result of dermal, hand-tomouth, or other exposure; • Consider the level at which there is a reasonable certainty of no harm to children, pregnant women, or other susceptible individuals and their offspring, reviewing the best available science, and using sufficient safety factors to account for uncertainties regarding exposure and susceptibility of children, pregnant women, and other potentially susceptible individuals; and • Consider possible similar health effects of phthalate alternatives used in children’s toys and child care articles. The CPSIA contemplates completion of the CHAP’s examination within 18 months of the panel’s appointment. The CHAP must review prior work on phthalates by the Commission, but the prior work is not to be considered determinative because the CHAP’s examination must be conducted de novo. The CHAP must make recommendations to the Commission about which phthalates, or E:\FR\FM\29JNN1.SGM 29JNN1
