ACTION: Notice; correction. EPA issued a notice in the Federal Register of November 20, 2013, and March 13, 2014, concerning receipt of requests to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations and its follow-up cancellation order, respectively. In both notices, EPA listed the pesticide product Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN–100004). However, soon after the registrant requested voluntary cancellation, the registrant notified the Agency on June 21, 2013, that it chose to withdraw the request for pesticide product Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN–100004), since it had been mistakenly submitted. Therefore, EPA is not cancelling the pesticide product Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN– 100004). Herein this document, due to the inadvertent listing by EPA, the Agency is removing the cancellation order for Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN–100004) listed in both the November 20, 2013, and March 13, 2014, Federal Register notices. EPA issued a notice in the Federal Register of November 20, 2013, and March 13, 2014, concerning receipt of requests to voluntarily cancel certain pesticide registrations and its follow-up cancellation order, respectively. In both notices, EPA inadvertently listed the pesticide product Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN–100004). The registrant had previously withdrawn the requested voluntary cancellation for this product. Therefore, EPA is not cancelling the pesticide product Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN–100004). This document removes the cancellation order for Treflan H.F.P. (EPA Reg. No. MN– 100004) listed in both the November 20, 2013, and March 13, 2014, Federal Register notices. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John W.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:54 Apr 17, 2014 Jkt 232001 nominations of scientific experts from a diverse range of disciplines to be considered for appointment to the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC), the Science Advisory Board (SAB) and four SAB committees described in this notice. Appointments are anticipated to be filled by the start of Fiscal Year 2015 (October 2015). DATES: Nominations should be submitted in time to arrive no later than May 19, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nominators unable to submit nominations electronically as described below may submit a paper copy to the Designated Federal Officers for the committees, as identified below. General inquiries regarding the work of the CASAC and SAB or SAB committees may also be directed to the designated DFOs. Background: Established by statute, the CASAC (42 U.S.C. 7409) and SAB (42 U.S.C. 4365) are chartered Federal Advisory Committees that provide independent scientific and technical peer review, consultation, advice and recommendations directly to the EPA Administrator on the scientific bases for EPA’s actions and programs. Members of the CASAC and the SAB constitute distinguished bodies of non-EPA scientists, engineers, economists, and behavioral and social scientists who are nationally and internationally recognized experts in their respective fields. Members are appointed by the EPA Administrator for a three-year term. Expertise Sought for CASAC: Established in 1977 under the Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments, the chartered CASAC reviews and offers scientific advice to the EPA Administrator on technical aspects of national ambient air quality standards for criteria pollutants (ozone; particulate matter; carbon monoxide; nitrogen oxides; sulfur dioxide; and lead). As required under the CAA section 109(d), CASAC is composed of seven members, with at least one member of the National Academy of Sciences, one physician, and one person representing state air pollution control agencies. Accordingly, the SAB Staff Office is seeking nominations of experts to serve on the CASAC who are members of the National Academy of Sciences as well as physicians who have a special expertise in health effects of air pollution. The SAB Staff Office is also seeking nominations of experts who have demonstrated experience in the following science related to air pollution: Atmospheric sciences; ecological and welfare effects; engineering; health sciences; medicine; PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 public health; modeling; and/or risk assessment. The SAB Staff Office is especially interested in scientists with expertise described above who have knowledge and experience in air quality relating to criteria pollutants. For further information about the CASAC membership appointment process and schedule, please contact Mr. Aaron Yeow, DFO, by telephone at 202–564– 2050 or by email at yeow.aaron@ epa,gov. Expertise Sought for the SAB: The SAB was established in 1978 by the Environmental Research, Development and Demonstration Authorization Act to provide independent advice to the Administrator on scientific and technical matters underlying the agency’s policies and actions. The chartered SAB provides strategic advice to the EPA Administrator on a variety of EPA science and research programs. All the work of SAB committees and panels is under the direction of the chartered SAB. The chartered SAB reviews all SAB committee and panel draft reports and determines whether they are appropriate to send to the EPA Administrator. The SAB Staff Office is seeking nominations of experts to serve on the chartered SAB in the following disciplines as they relate to the human health and the environment: Analytical chemistry; ecological sciences and ecological assessment; economics; engineering; geochemistry, health disparities; health sciences; hydrology; hydrogeology; medicine; microbiology; modeling; pediatrics; public health; risk assessment; social, behavioral and decision sciences; and statistics. The SAB Staff Office is especially interested in scientists with expertise described above who have knowledge and experience in air quality; agricultural sciences; climate change; drinking water; energy and the environment; water quality; water quantity; water reuse; ecosystem services; community environmental health; sustainability; chemical safety; green chemistry; human health risk assessment; homeland security; and waste and waste management. For further information about the SAB membership appointment process and schedule, please contact Dr. Angela Nugent, DFO, by telephone at 202–564–2218 or by email at nugent.angela@epa.gov. The SAB Staff Office is also seeking nominations for experts for four SAB committees: The Chemical Assessment Advisory Committee; the Drinking Water Committee; the Ecological Processes and Effects Committee; and, the Radiation Advisory Committee.
