Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Notice is hereby given that EPA has determined that, in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C. Appendix, the National Advisory Committee for Acute Exposure Guideline Levels for Hazardous Substances (NAC/AEGL Committee) is a necessary committee which is in the public interest. Accordingly, the NAC/AEGL Committee will be renewed for an additional 2-year period. The purpose of the NAC/AEGL Committee is to provide advice and recommendations to the EPA Administrator on issues associated with acute exposure guideline levels which can be used by Federal, State, and local agencies and the private sector for emergency planning response and prevention activities related to release of hazardous substances through accident or chemical terrorism activity. The NAC/AEGL Committee's recommended values will represent standardized national acute exposure guideline levels developed by a cross-section of the U.S. scientific community and based on the use of consistent methodology developed by the National Academy of Sciences.Start Further Info
