The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies Federal agencies of the laboratories currently certified to meet the standards of Subpart C of the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs (Mandatory Guidelines). The Mandatory Guidelines were first published in the Federal Register on April 11, 1988 (53 FR 11970), and subsequently revised in the Federal Register on June 9, 1994 (59 FR 29908), on September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118), and on April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644). A notice listing all currently certified laboratories is published in the Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any laboratory's certification is suspended or revoked, the laboratory will be omitted from subsequent lists until such time as it is restored to full certification under the Mandatory Guidelines. If any laboratory has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end, and will be omitted from the monthly listing thereafter. This notice is also available on the Internet at http:// www.workplace.samhsa.gov and http://www.drugfreeworkplace.gov.
Availability of the Draft Report “Selected Information on Chemical Releases Within Great Lakes Counties Containing Areas of Concern (AOC) (Public Comment Draft 2008)”
Document Number: E8-9742
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-05-02
Agency: Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Department of Health and Human Services
This report responds to a request from the International Joint Commission (IJC), the binational organization that works to implement the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA) between the U.S. and Canada. The GLWQA calls for the two nations to define ``the threat to human health from critical pollutants'' found in the Great Lakes basin. This notice announces the availability of the draft report entitled ``Selected Information on Chemical Releases Within Great Lakes Counties Containing Areas of Concern (AOC) (Public Comment Draft 2008)''. This report summarizes previously-published public health assessment products and chemical release information for the 26 U.S. AOCs and 54 counties that are in close geographic proximity to those AOCs. This is a descriptive report that does not make associations between health outcomes and chemical exposures. The compilation of environmental data, gathered by ATSDR and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is intended to help decision-makers set future priorities.
