Download as PDF 39238 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 127 / Monday, July 2, 2012 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES EPA to provide advice, information, and recommendations concerning practices and programs of ORD, including ORD’s research planning process, in accordance with provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act 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 case study documents are structured by the comprehensive environmental assessment (CEA) framework, to systematically organize information on the product life cycle, environmental fate, exposure-dose, and impacts in humans, ecological receptors, and the environment. As noted above, CEA also includes a process component involving decision science methods, and this aspect of CEA was used in prior workshops to identify and prioritize research or information needed to assess nanoscale titanium dioxide and nanoscale silver, respectively. The nanomaterial case studies are intended to be used in the development and refinement of long-term research planning efforts for potential human health, ecological, and environmental risks. 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. To that end, the current case study on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) builds on previous efforts by incorporating a comparative perspective with conventional flame-retardant, decabromodiphenyl ether. This comparison is included to provide a relatively more robust data base that may help identify key data gaps for MWCNT related to future assessment and risk management efforts. It further provides a foundation for future efforts to identify risk-related tradeoffs between a traditional material, such as decaBDE and a nano-enabled product. II.
