The 60-day public comment period ended on April 29, 2014. EPA will consider peer reviewer and public comments when finalizing the documents.

The draft documents, draft charge questions, and public comments submitted during the public comment period may be viewed at http:// www.regulations.gov (Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OW–2014–0138).

Information About the Peer Reviewers Consistent with guidelines for the peer review of highly influential scientific assessments, EPA tasked a contractor (Versar, Inc.) to assemble six to seven experts to evaluate the draft documents. Versar, Inc. evaluated 29 candidates who were either nominated during a previous public comment period (February 28, 2014 to March 21, 2014) or were identified by Versar to augment the list of publicallynominated candidates. Versar narrowed the list of potential reviewers to 15 candidates and solicited public comments on the interim list on April 30, 2014 (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/ pkg/FR-2014-04-30/pdf/201409888.pdf), 79 FR 24419. Using the selection criteria described in the Federal Register dated February 28, 2014 (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR2014-02-28/pdf/2014-04455.pdf), 79 FR 11429, Versar selected the final seven peer reviewers who, collectively, best provide expertise spanning the multiple subject matter areas covered by the draft documents and, to the extent feasible, best provide a balance of perspectives. Additional information on the scientific peer reviewer selection process can be found at: http://peerreview.versar.com/ epa/pfoa. The final list of seven selected peer reviewers is provided below. 1. Dr. James Bruckner—University of Georgia 2. Dr. Deborah Cory-Slechta—University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry 3. Dr. Jamie DeWitt—East Carolina University 4. Dr. Jeffrey Fisher—U.S. Food & Drug Administration 5. Dr. William Hayton—The Ohio State University (Emeritus) 6. Dr. Matthew Longnecker—National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences 7. Dr. Angela Slitt—University of Rhode Island EPA requests that no individual or organization contact in any way the contractor (Versar, Inc.) or the peer reviewers regarding the subject of the peer review meeting, send them written materials regarding the subject of the meeting, or make any offers or requests to any of them that appear to be linked to their participation in the peer review. The Contractor (Versar, Inc.) will direct the reviewers to report any such contacts to the Contractor (Versar, Inc), who will take appropriate action in consultation with EPA to ensure the independence and impartiality of the peer review.

Information About the Peer Review Meeting The peer reviewers have been charged with evaluating and preparing written comments on the draft PFOA and PFOS health effects documents. Specifically, reviewers will provide general comments, their overall impressions of the documents, and responses to 12 charge questions. Reviewers will also consider the appropriateness of the quality, accuracy, and relevance of the data in the documents. Comments submitted to EPA’s public docket (Docket ID number EPA–HQ–OW– 2014–0138) during each document’s 60day public comment period will also be provided to the peer reviewers ahead of the meeting for their consideration. Peer reviewers will participate in the two-day peer review meeting to discuss the scientific basis supporting EPA’s draft health effects documents. Following the peer review meeting, Versar will provide a peer review summary report to EPA containing the comments and recommendations from the peer reviewers. The final peer review report will also be made available to the public. In preparing the final health effects documents, EPA will consider Versar’s report of the comments and recommendations from the external peer review meeting, as well as written public comments received through the official public docket.
