Specifically, for the risk evaluation of Asbestos Part 1 (Chrysotile Asbestos), EPA has provided: • The scope document and problem formulation (in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OPPT–2016–0736); • Draft risk evaluation and final risk evaluation (in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OPPT–2019–0501); • All notices, determinations, findings, consent agreements, and orders (in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OPPT–2019–0501); • Any information required to be provided to the Agency under 15 U.S.C. 2603 (in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OPPT– 2016–0736 and Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OPPT–2019–0501); • A nontechnical summary of the risk evaluation (in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OPPT–2019–0501); • A list of the studies, with the results of the studies, considered in carrying out each risk evaluation in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OPPT–2019–0501); • The final peer review report, including the response to peer review and public comments received during peer review (in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OPPT–2019–0501); and • Response to public comments received on the draft scope and the draft risk evaluation (in Docket ID No. EPA– HQ–OPPT–2019–0501). II. TSCA Risk Evaluation A. What is EPA’s risk evaluation process for existing chemicals under TSCA? The risk evaluation process is the second step in EPA’s existing chemical review process under TSCA, following prioritization and before risk management. As this chemical is one of the first ten chemical substances undergoing risk evaluation, the chemical substance was not required to go through prioritization (81 FR 91927, December 19, 2016) (FRL–9956–47). The purpose of conducting risk evaluations is to determine whether a chemical substance presents an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment under the conditions of use, including an unreasonable risk to a relevant potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation. As part of this process, EPA must evaluate both hazard and exposure, not consider costs or other nonrisk factors, use reasonably available information and approaches in a manner that is consistent with the requirements in TSCA for the use of the best available science, and ensure decisions are based on the weight of the scientific evidence. The specific risk evaluation process that EPA has established by rule to VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 Dec 31, 2020 Jkt 253001 implement the statutory process is set out in 40 CFR part 702 and summarized on EPA’s website at https:// www.epa.gov/assessing-and-managingchemicals-under-tsca/risk-evaluationsexisting-chemicals-under-tsca. As explained in the preamble to EPA’s final rule on procedures for risk evaluation (82 FR 33726, July 20, 2017) (FRL– 9964–38), the specific regulatory process set out in 40 CFR part 702, subpart B is being followed for the first ten chemical substances undergoing risk evaluation to the maximum extent practicable. Prior to the publication of this final risk evaluation, a draft risk evaluation was subject to peer review and public comment. EPA reviewed the report from the peer review committee and public comments and has amended the risk evaluation in response to these comments as appropriate. The public comments, peer review report, and EPA’s response to comments is in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OPPT–2019– 0501. Prior to the publication of the draft risk evaluation, EPA made available the scope and problem formulation, and solicited public input on uses and exposure. EPA’s documents and the public comments are in Docket ID No. EPA–HQ–OPPT–2016–0736. Additionally, information about the scope, problem formulation, and draft risk evaluation phases of the TSCA risk evaluation for this chemical is available at EPA’s website at https:// www.epa.gov/assessing-and-managingchemicals-under-tsca/risk-evaluationasbestos-0. B. Definition of asbestos? For the purposes of the Risk Evaluation for Asbestos under TSCA Section 6(a), EPA is using the TSCA section 202 definition of asbestos; which is—‘‘asbestiform varieties of six fiber types—chrysotile (serpentine), crocidolite (riebeckite), amosite (cummingtonite-grunerite), anthophyllite, tremolite or actinolite.’’ Part 1 of the Risk Evaluation for Asbestos is focused on Chrysotile Asbestos, as this is the only fiber type currently being imported, processed, or distributed for use in the United States. It is used in diaphragms, sheet gaskets, other gaskets, oilfield brake blocks, aftermarket automotive brakes/linings, and other vehicle friction products. Part 1 of the Risk Evaluation for Asbestos presents risk determinations for Chrysotile Asbestos attributable to these conditions of use. PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 91 C. Risk Evaluation for Asbestos Part 2: Legacy Uses and Associated Disposals of Asbestos As a result of the court decision in Safer Chemicals Healthy Families v. EPA, 943 F.3d 397 (9th Cir. 2019), EPA will evaluate legacy uses and associated disposals for Asbestos in Part 2 of the Risk Evaluation which is under expedited development. Legacy uses and associated disposals of Asbestos are conditions of use for which manufacture, import, processing and distribution no longer occur but where use and disposal, respectively, are still known, intended, or reasonably foreseen to occur. Part 2 of the Risk Evaluation for Asbestos will consider all six fiber types of Asbestos described in the TSCA definition. Part 2 of the Risk Evaluation for Asbestos will begin with a draft scope document that will be made available for public comment. EPA will engage external stakeholders, where appropriate, to obtain reasonably available information related to legacy uses and associated disposals, including in situ in older buildings or still present in older equipment that has not exceeded its useful life.
