Proposed Substances To Be Evaluated for Toxicological Profile Development

This notice solicits public nominations of substances for ATSDR to evaluate for Toxicological Profile development. ATSDR will consider nominations from the Substance Priority List found at www.atsdr.cdc.gov/SPL/. ATSDR also accepts nominations for substances not on the Substance Priority List (SPL) 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 Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) National Priorities List (see CERCLA Section 104(i)(1)(B); 42 U.S.C. 9604(i)(1)(B)). For more information on the CERCLA National Priorities List, visit www.epa.gov/superfund/ superfund-national-priorities-list-npl. The agency accepts these nominations 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.
