SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Information About IRIS

    EPA's IRIS Program is a human health assessment program that 
evaluates quantitative and qualitative risk information on effects that 
may result from exposure to chemical substances found in the 
environment. Through the IRIS Program, EPA provides the highest quality 
science-based human health assessments to support the Agency's 
regulatory activities and decisions to protect public health. The IRIS 
database contains information for more than 500 chemical substances 
that can be used to support the first two steps (hazard identification 
and dose-response evaluation) of the human health risk assessment 
process. When supported by available data, IRIS provides health effects 
information and toxicity values for health effects (including cancer 
and effects other than cancer). Government and others combine IRIS 
toxicity values with exposure information to characterize public health 
risks of chemical substances; this information is then used to support 
risk management decisions designed to protect public health.

II. Bi-Monthly Public Meeting

    In addition to the 60-day public comment period announced in this 
notice, the draft assessment will be discussed at the first bi-monthly 
IRIS public meeting scheduled for October 23-24, 2013. Information on 
this meeting, including meeting location, time, and registration and 
participation procedures, will be available at the IRIS Web site 
(https://www.epa.gov/iris/publicmeeting/). The purpose of the IRIS 
public meeting is to allow all interested parties to present scientific

questions to EPA and other interested parties attending the meeting. 
The public comments provided in response to this notice, and at the 
IRIS public meeting, will be considered by the Agency prior to 
submitting the draft assessment to the SAB for peer review.

III. Peer Review

    After consideration of public comments by EPA, the draft assessment 
will be sent to the EPA's Science Advisory Board (SAB) Chemical 
Assessment Advisory Committee (CAAC) for peer review. The EPA SAB is a 
body established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act with a broad 
mandate to advise the Agency on scientific matters. The public comment 
period and bi-monthly public meeting announced in this notice are 
separate processes from the SAB/CAAC peer review. The SAB will schedule 
one or more public peer review meetings, which will be announced in a 
separate Federal Register Notice at a later date.
