Proposed Substances To Be Evaluated for Toxicological Profile Development
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) within the Department of Health and Human Services is initiating the development of another set of Toxicological Profiles. This notice solicits public nominations of substances for ATSDR to evaluate for Toxicological Profile development. ATSDR will consider nominations from the Substance Priority List (available at https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/ SPL/). ATSDR also accepts nominations for non-Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERLA) substances that may have public health implications, on the basis of ATSDR's authority to prepare Toxicological Profiles for substances not found at sites on the CERCLA National Priorities List. For more information on the CERCLA National Priorities List, visit https:// www.epa.gov/superfund/superfund-national-priorities-list-npl. The agency will do so in order to establish and maintain an inventory of literature, research, and studies on the health effects of toxic substances, to respond to requests for consultation, and to support the site-specific response actions conducted by ATSDR, as otherwise necessary.
Availability of Draft Toxicological Profile for Glyphosate
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announces the opening of a docket to obtain comments on the Draft Toxicological Profile for Glyphosate. On February 12, 2015 ATSDR announced that it was preparing to develop their Set 28 Draft Toxicological Profiles, including Glyphosate, for public comment release (80 FR 7870). All toxicological profiles issued as ``Drafts for Public Comment'' represent ATSDR's best efforts to provide important toxicological information on priority hazardous substances. ATSDR is seeking public comments and additional information or reports on studies about the health effects of glyphosate for review and potential inclusion in the profile. ATSDR considers key studies for these substances during the profile development process. This document solicits any relevant, additional studies. ATSDR will evaluate the quality and relevance of such data or studies for possible inclusion into the profile.
