August 13 – December 16, 2015: Tribal consultation and coordination period for the data needs assessment for Brominated Phthalates.

These comment periods are being conducted prior to EPA conducting detailed risk analysis and risk characterization to increase transparency about EPA’s thinking and analysis process, identify scenarios where further risk analysis may be necessary, provide opportunity for tribes to comment on EPA’s approach, and give EPA the opportunity to receive additional information/data.
