TSCA Workplan Chemicals Reports
On March 15, 2017, the Healthy Building Network, the Environmental Health Strategy Center, and Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, submitted detailed comments to EPA on five chemicals to be evaluated under the recently strengthened federal chemical safety law, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The groups provided new information on these chemicals’ production, import, use, and disposal. Some of this information, which is based on a review of shipping records on the international trade in toxic chemicals, has never before been made available to the public. EHSC and SCHF also submitted comments on a sixth chemical, methylene chloride.
