The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on January 31, 2024, a 30-day public comment period on candidates currently under consideration for membership on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals (SACC). This public comment period follows a November 2023 call for nominations of scientific experts to be considered for appointment to the SACC. EPA notes that there are currently 18 SACC members, with eight membership terms that will soon expire. The expiring membership terms are eligible for reappointments. Therefore, up to eight new appointments or a mix of reappointments and new appointments are possible during this membership cycle. EPA will use comments received to assist it in making SACC membership decisions by June 2024. Biographies for all interested and available candidates under consideration are available in docket EPA-HQ-OPPT-2023-0521. In addition, biographies for current SACC members are available on the TSCA SACC website.
