EPA’s List of Chemicals Subject to Risk Assessment Continues

Posted

Today, our colleagues Andrew Homer, Kevin Ashe and Rebecca Lee published an alert on the Environmental Protection Agency’s recent listing of certain chemicals as subject to review for risks to human health and to the environment.  EPA’s actions follow recent amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act requiring it to timely complete risk assessments for chemicals manufacture, distributed and imported to the U.S. They encourage companies with U.S. operations to consider the implications if they use chemicals that have been list or may be listed by the EPA. The alert is titled Toxic Substances Control Act Overhaul.
