SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) (42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.) amended the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA or Superfund) (42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.) by establishing certain requirements for ATSDR and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with regard to hazardous substances that are most commonly found at facilities on the CERCLA National Priorities List (NPL). Among these statutory requirements is a mandate for the Administrator of ATSDR to prepare toxicological profiles for each substance included on the Priority List of Hazardous Substances (www.atsdr.cdc.gov/​SPL). This list names 275 hazardous substances that pose the most significant potential threat to human health as determined by ATSDR and EPA. The availability of the revised list of the 275 priority substances was announced in the Federal Register on May 28, 2014 (79 FR 30613). For prior versions of the list of substances, see Federal Register notices dated November 3, 2011 (76 FR 68193); March 6, 2008 (73 FR 12178); December 7, 2005 (70 FR 72840 ; November 7, 2003 (68 FR 63098); October 25, 2001 (66 FR 54014); October 21, 1999 (64 FR 56792); November 17, 1997 (62 FR 61332); April 29, 1996 (61 FR 18744); February 28, 1994 (59 FR 9486); October 28, 1992 (57 FR 48801); October 17, 1991 (56 FR 52166); October 17, 1990 (55 FR 42067); October 26, 1989 (54 FR 43615); October 20, 1988 (53 FR 41280); and April 17, 1987 (52 FR 12866).
