PUBLIC COMMENTS ON THE DRAFT ACTION PLAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FRAMEWORK FOR METALS ASSESSMENT AND GUIDANCE FOR CHARACTERIZING AND RANKING METALS
On June 11, 2002 EPA published a Federal Register (FR) Notice announcing the availability of the Agency's Draft Action Plan for the Development of a Framework for Metals Assessment and Guidance for Characterizing and Ranking Metals. The FR Notice informed the public of the availability of the Draft Action Plan and the opportunities to provide comment. As stated in the Notice, comments received within three weeks of publication of the Federal Register Notice were considered in the Agency's development of a charge to the Science Advisory Board (SAB). Public comments and the SAB's comments will be considered in revising the Draft Action Plan.
