Studies Evaluating the Impact of Surface Coatings on the Level of Dislodgeable Arsenic, Chromium and Copper from Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA)-Treated Wood

Thursday, November 16, 2006

8:30 A.M.     Introduction and Identification of Panel Members -
                              Steven G. Heeringa, Ph.D. (FIFRA SAP Chair) 
8:40 A.M.     Administrative Procedures by Designated Federal Official -
                              Mr. Joseph E. Bailey, Office of Science Coordination and Policy, EPA
8:45 A.M.     Questions to the Panel

                    Question 3:  Please comment on whether the statistical methods employed by EPA and CPSC staff represent a scientifically justifiable and robust approach to evaluation of the data. Have the statistical analyses, including the analyses of variance, been presented in an appropriate, useful, clear and transparent manner?

10:00 A.M.   Break
10:15 A.M.   Questions to the Panel

                              Question 4:  Certain specific issues, such as the impact of abrasion and coating reapplication, were not examined in these studies.  Please comment on how these data gaps have been sufficiently accounted for in the discussion of the results of these studies.


11:15 A.M.   Questions to the Panel

                              Question 5:  The studies were performed under limited study conditions (one climatic region, i.e., the mid-Atlantic U.S., the structures were not subjected to normal use or wear, etc.) with a limited set of products.   Please comment on whether it is appropriate to extrapolate these results to other conditions.

12:15 P.M.    LUNCH
1:30 P.M.     Questions to the Panel

                              Question 6:  Please comment on whether the methodology is suitable for use by others (e.g., the coating industry, wood treaters, or consumer groups) for evaluating and developing new products.  Are there elements of the protocol that you recommend be modified or explored (e.g., the moisture content of the wipe material, wipe contact time on the wood surface, etc.)?

2:30 P.M.     Break
2:45 P.M.     Questions to the Panel

                              Question 7:  Please comment on whether these studies are of sufficient quality and breadth to be used to assist in developing conclusions about the ability of certain coatings to substantially reduce dislodgeable CCA chemicals.  Have the agencies identified the most important information and findings?  Are there other findings/conclusions that could be made from these studies?

4:30 P.M.     Adjournment
