SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

EPA is announcing that the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals (SACC) meeting to consider and review the draft risk evaluation for Trichloroethylene (TCE) will be a virtual public meeting, with participation by phone and webcast only. There will be no in-person gathering for this meeting. To accommodate this change, meeting start times are adjusted, and the meeting dates are extended by one day. The topic for this meeting remains unchanged from that described in the February 26, 2020, Federal Register notice (85 FR 11079) (FRL-10005-52). Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, the agency is implementing this change out of an abundance of caution and in response to travel restrictions imposed by some SACC members' employers and other members' concerns regarding travel.
