The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is initiating the development of its 27th set of toxicological profiles (CERCLA Set 27). This notice announces the list of proposed substances that will be evaluated for Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act(CERCLA) Set 27 toxicological profile development. ATSDR's Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences is soliciting public nominations from the list of proposed substances to be evaluated for toxicological profile development. ATSDR also will consider the nomination of any additional, non-CERCLA 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 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.
