EPA Seeks Comment on EDSP Petition
On February 29, 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published Federal Register notice soliciting public comment on a petition that's been sent to EPA. EPA describes the petition as follows:
"EPA is seeking public comment on a December 7, 2011 petition from the Chemical Producers & Distributors Association (CPDA), the Halogenated Solvents Industry Alliance, Inc., and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The
petition requested that the Agency abide by the Paperwork Reduction Act and
Office of Management and Budget Terms of Clearance for the approved
Information Collection Request (ICR) of the first list of 67 chemicals to receive
orders under the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program by demonstrating the
information being sought has practical utility and is not duplicative before
proceeding with Tier 1 screening orders for additional chemicals."
EPA requests that it receive any public comments on the petition by May 29, 2012.
