Draft List of Chemicals

EPA is seeking public comment on a draft list of 73 pesticide chemicals
that was published in a June 2007 Federal Register Notice [33486 Federal
Register / Vol. 72, No. 116 / Monday, June 18, 2007 / Notices]
http://www.epa.gov/oscpmont/oscpendo/pubs/draft_list_frn_061807.pdf. The
chemicals selected are the first to be considered for screening under
the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. This list should not be
construed as a list of known or likely endocrine disruptors. Nothing in
the approach for generating the initial list provides a basis to infer
that any of the chemicals selected interfere with or are suspected to
interfere with the endocrine systems of humans or other species. 

Comments must be received on or before September 17, 2007.
