To facilitate the payment of redress, Part VI of the proposed order requires Wacoal America to provide to the Commission a searchable electronic file containing the name and contact information of all consumers who purchased the iPants garments directly from respondent from January 1, 2011, through the date of entry of the order.

Part IX of the proposed order is triggered whenever the human clinical testing requirement in either Part II or Part III applies. Part IX of the proposed order requires the company to secure and preserve all underlying or supporting data and documents generally accepted by experts in the field as relevant to an assessment of the test. There is an exception for a ‘‘Reliably Reported’’ test defined as a test published in a peer-reviewed journal that was not conducted, controlled, or sponsored by any proposed respondent or supplier. Also, the published report must provide sufficient information about the test for experts in the relevant field to assess the reliability of the results. Part X of the proposed order contains recordkeeping requirements for advertisements and substantiation relevant to any representation covered by the proposed order. Parts XI, XII and XIII of the proposed order require respondent to provide copies of the order to its personnel; to notify the Commission of changes in corporate structure that might affect compliance obligations under the order; and to file compliance reports with the Commission. Part XIV provides that the order will terminate after twenty (20) years, with certain exceptions. The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order, and it is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the complaint or and proposed order or to modify the proposed order’s terms in any way. By direction of the Commission. Donald S. Clark, Secretary.

Substances are listed in the report as either known or reasonably anticipated to be human carcinogens. The listing of a substance in the RoC indicates a potential hazard, but does not establish the exposure conditions that pose a cancer hazard to individuals in their daily lives. For each listed substance, the RoC provides information from cancer studies that support the listing as well as information about potential sources of exposure and current federal regulations to limit exposures. Each edition of the RoC is cumulative, that is, it lists newly reviewed substances in addition to substances listed in the previous edition.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background Information on the RoC

    The RoC is a congressionally mandated document that identifies and 
discusses agents, substances, mixtures, or exposure circumstances 
(collectively referred to as ``substances'') that may pose a hazard to 
human health by virtue of their carcinogenicity. Substances are listed 
in the report as either known or reasonably anticipated to be human 
carcinogens. The listing of a substance in the RoC indicates a 
potential hazard, but does not establish the exposure conditions that 
pose a cancer hazard to individuals in their daily lives. For each 
listed substance, the RoC provides information from cancer studies that 
support the listing as well as information about potential sources of 
exposure and current federal regulations to limit exposures. Each 
edition of the RoC is cumulative, that is, it lists newly reviewed 
substances in addition to substances listed in the previous edition. 
Information about the RoC is available on the RoC Web site (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/roc13) or by contacting Dr. Lunn (see ADDRESSES

    The NTP prepares the RoC on behalf of the Secretary of Health and 
Human Services. For the 13th RoC, the NTP followed an established, 
multi-step process with multiple opportunities for public input, and 
used established criteria to evaluate the scientific evidence on each 
candidate substance under review (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/rocprocess).
