  SUMMARY: The National Advisory Committee for Acute Exposure Guideline
  Levels for Hazardous Substances (NAC/AEGL Committee) will hold a
  meeting in December in Washington, DC. At this meeting, the (NAC/AEGL
  Committee) will address, as time permits, the various aspects of the
  acute toxicity and the development of Acute Exposure Guideline Levels
  (AEGLs) for the following chemicals: arsenous trichloride, carbon
  tetrachloride, hydrogen cyanide, methyltrichlorosilane, phosgene, and
  trimethylchlorosilane. In addition, literature search results for
  sulfuric acid, sulfur dioxide, and sulfur trioxide will be discussed
  and the NAC/AEGL Committee may also evaluate public comments and
  subsequently establish ``Interim AEGLs'' for the chemicals aniline;
  arsine; chlorine; 1,2-dichloroethene; 1,1-dimethylhydrazine; 1,2-
  dimethylhydrazine; ethylene oxide; fluorine; hydrazine;
  methylhydrazine; nitric acid; and phosphine published in the Federal
  Register issue of October 30, 1997 (62 FR 58840) (FRL-5737-3), as
