ACTION: Notice of public comment period. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing a 30-day public comment period associated with release of the IRIS Assessment Plan for Inorganic Mercury Salts. This document communicates information on the scoping needs identified by EPA program and regional offices and the IRIS Program’s initial problem formulation activities. Specifically, the assessment plan outlines the objectives for the IRIS assessment and the type of evidence considered most pertinent to address the scoping needs. EPA is releasing this IRIS Assessment Plan for a 30-day public comment period in advance of a public science webinar planned for December 5, 2019. The Agency encourages the public to comment on all aspects of the assessment plan, including key science issues. DATES: The 30-day public comment period begins October 8, 2019 and ends November 7, 2019. Comments must be received on or before November 7, 2019. ADDRESSES: The IRIS Assessment Plan for Inorganic Mercury Salts will be available via the internet on the IRIS website at https://www.epa.gov/iris/irisrecent-additions and in the public docket at https://www.regulations.gov, Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–ORD–2019– 0504. SUMMARY: For information on the public comment period, contact the ORD Docket at the EPA Headquarters Docket Center; phone: 202–566–1752; fax: 202–566– 9744; or email: Docket_ORD@epa.gov. For technical information on the IRIS Assessment Plan for Inorganic Mercury Salts, contact Dr. James Avery, NCEA; phone: 202–564–1494; or email: avery.james@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Information About IRIS Assessment Plans EPA’s IRIS Program is a human health assessment program that evaluates quantitative and qualitative information on the health effects that may result from exposure to chemicals found in the environment. Through the IRIS PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Program, EPA provides high quality science-based human health assessments to support the Agency’s regulatory activities and decisions to protect public health. As part of scoping and initial problem formulation activities prior to the development of an assessment, the IRIS Program carries out a broad, preliminary literature survey to assist in identifying health effects that have been studied in relation to the chemical or substance of interest, as well as science issues that may need to be considered when evaluating toxicity. This information, in conjunction with scoping needs identified by EPA program and regional offices, is used to inform the development of an IRIS Assessment Plan (IAP). The IAP communicates the plan for developing each individual chemical assessment to the public and includes summary information on the IRIS Program’s scoping and initial problem formulation activities, objectives and specific aims for the assessment, and a PECO (Populations, Exposures, Comparators, and Outcomes) for the systematic review. The PECO provides the framework for developing detailed literature search strategies and inclusion/exclusion criteria, particularly with respect to evidence stream (e.g., human, animal, mechanistic), exposure measures, and outcome measures. The IAP serves to inform the subsequent development of chemical-specific systematic review protocols, which will be made available for public review. II. Public Webinar Information To allow for public input, EPA is convening a public webinar to discuss the IRIS Assessment Plan for Inorganic Mercury Salts on December 5, 2019. Specific teleconference and webinar information regarding this public meeting will be provided through the IRIS website (https://www.epa.gov/iris) and via EPA’s Human Health Risk Assessment (HHRA) and IRIS listservs. To register for the HHRA or IRIS listserv, visit the IRIS website (https:// www.epa.gov/iris) or visit https:// www.epa.gov/iris/forms/stayingconnected-integrated-risk-informationsystem#connect.
