Availability of Draft Toxicological Profile; Set 27 Toxicological Profiles
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the availability of Set 27 Toxicological Profiles for review and comment. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA), Sec. 104(i)(3), (42 U.S.C. 9604(i)(3)), directs the ATSDR Administrator to prepare Toxicological Profiles of Priority hazardous substances and, as necessary, to revise and publish each updated toxicological profile. Comments can include additional information or reports on studies about the health effects of Set 27 substances. Although ATSDR considered key studies for each of these substances during the profile development process, the Federal Register notice solicits any relevant, additional studies, particularly unpublished data. ATSDR will evaluate the quality and relevance of such data or studies for possible inclusion into the profile. ATSDR remains committed to providing a public comment period for this document as a means to best serve public health and our clients.
