EPA Identifies Work Plan Chemicals for 2013 and 2014
As part of EPA’s comprehensive approach to enhance the Agency’s chemicals management program, EPA has identified 18 chemicals for review and assessment in 2013 and 2014. This follows the March release of the Agency’s work plan of 83 chemicals for review and assessment under the Toxic Substances Control Act. The work plan identified seven chemicals on which the Agency will conduct risk assessments in 2012 and indicated that EPA would identify the 2013 and 2014 chemicals this spring. These draft risk assessments will be posted for public review and comment as they are completed.
I'll have more analysis on this shortly.
Additional information on this effort, including a list of the 18 chemicals, can be found at on EPA's web site.
