EPA Updates Risk Analysis for Solvent-contaminated Wipes
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has received a request to extend the comment period on its analysis of solvent contaminated industrial wipes. The extension will give stakeholders time to review the available information.
The agency also recently updated the contacts list used to notify stakeholders when it publishes Federal Register notices about its rulemaking activities. This update adds more organizations, associations, and environmental justice groups. Expanding the contact list furthers EPA's communication goals for transparency and provides notice to a more diverse community of stakeholders. Extending the comment period responds to the commenter's request and allows the recent additions to our contact list time to comment on the risk analysis.
The new deadline for comments is Feb. 26, 2010. Comments may be submitted through www.regulations.gov, Docket EPA-HQ-2003-0004.
