Agency: Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Department of Health and Human Services
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA or Superfund), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA), requires the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), located within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to prepare and to periodically revise toxicological profiles on hazardous substances. ATSDR is initiating the development of its 26th set of toxicological profiles (CERCLA Set 26). This notice announces the list of substances that will be evaluated for CERCLA Set 26 toxicological profile development. ATSDR's Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences (proposed) is soliciting public nominations from the list of substances to be evaluated for toxicological profile development. ATSDR also will consider the nomination of any additional substances that are not included on this list 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 National Priorities List. The agency will do so in order to ``* * * establish and maintain inventory of literature, research, and studies on the health effects of toxic substances'' under CERCLA Section 104(i)(1)(B), to respond to requests for consultation under section 104(i)(4), and to support the site- specific response actions conducted by ATSDR, as otherwise necessary.
