ADDRESSES: Both directories can be accessed electronically at the following HHS Web site http:// www.pso.AHRQ.gov/index.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background The Patient Safety Act authorizes the listing of PSOs, which are entities or component organizations whose mission and primary activity is to conduct activities to improve patient safety and the quality of health care delivery. HHS issued the Patient Safety Rule to implement the Patient Safety Act. AHRQ administers the provisions of the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule (PDF file, 450 KB. PDF Help) relating to the listing and operation of PSOs. The Patient Safety Rule authorizes AHRQ to list as a PSO an entity that attests that it meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for listing. A PSO can be ‘‘delisted’’ if it is found no longer to meet the requirements of the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule, or when a PSO chooses to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any reason. Section 3.108(d) of the Patient Safety Rule requires AHRQ to provide public notice when it removes an organization from the list of federally approved PSOs. AHRQ has accepted a notification from Universal Safety Solution PSO, PSO number P0104, a component entity of Universal Safety Solution, LLC, to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO. Accordingly, Universal Safety Solution PSO was delisted effective at 12:00 Midnight ET (2400) on February 1, 2013. More information on PSOs can be obtained through AHRQ’s PSO Web site at http://www.pso.AHRQ.gov/ index.html. VerDate Mar<14>2013 18:04 Mar 19, 2013 Jkt 229001 Dated: March 4, 2013. Carolyn M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) (42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.) amended the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA or Superfund) (42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.) by establishing certain requirements for ATSDR and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with regard to hazardous substances that are most commonly found at facilities on the CERCLA National Priorities List (NPL). Among these statutory requirements is a mandate for the Administrator of ATSDR to prepare toxicological profiles for each substance included on the priority list of hazardous substances (also called the Substance Priority List). This list identifies 275 hazardous substances that ATSDR (in cooperation with EPA) has determined pose the most significant potential threat to human health. The availability of the revised list of the 275 priority substances was announced in the Federal Register on November 3rd, 2011 (76 FR 68193) and is available at www.atsdr.cdc.gov/spl. In addition, ATSDR has the authority to prepare toxicological profiles for substances not PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17213 found at sites on the National Priorities List, in an effort to ‘‘* * * establish and maintain inventory of literature, research, and studies on the health effects of toxic substances’’ under CERCLA Section 104(i)(1)(B), to respond to requests for consultation under section 104(i)(4), and as otherwise necessary to support the site-specific response actions conducted by ATSDR. Notice of the availability of this toxicological profile in draft form for public review and comment was published in the Federal Register on April 27, 2011 (76 FR 23600), with notice of a 90-day public comment period, starting from the actual release date. Following the close of the comment period, chemical-specific comments were addressed, and, where appropriate, changes were incorporated into the profile. The public comments and other data submitted in response to the Federal Register notices bear the docket control number CDC–2001–005. This material is available for public inspection at ATSDR. Availability This notice announces the availability of the Toxicological Profile for Uranium prepared by ATSDR. The Toxicological Profile for Uranium will be made available to the public on or about March 5, 2013 at the ATSDR Web site: www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/ index.asp.
