Agency: Environmental Protection Agency

In today's action, the EPA refers to these submittals collectively as the ``2016 Ventura County Ozone SIP.''

The EPA is proposing to approve the 2016 Ventura County Ozone SIP as meeting all the applicable ozone nonattainment area requirements except for the contingency measure requirement, for which the EPA is proposing conditional approval. In addition, the EPA is beginning the adequacy process for the 2020 motor vehicle emissions budgets in the 2016 Ventura County Air Quality Management Plan through this proposed rule.

Type: Notice

Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ``Demonstrating Substantial Evidence of Effectiveness for Human Drug and Biological Products.''

Specifically, there are more programs studying serious diseases lacking effective treatment, more programs in rare diseases, and more programs for therapies targeted at disease subsets. There is a need for more Agency guidance on the flexibility in the amount and type of evidence needed to meet the substantial evidence standard in these circumstances.

Type: Notice

Concurrent with this action, the EPA is asking for comments on the potential criteria for how the Agency will determine whether to extend this variance for up to an additional twelve years.
