First 10 Chemicals Up for TSCA Risk Evaluation
In a Work Plan started in 2012, EPA identified 90 chemicals as candidates for risk evaluation.
This week, EPA announced the first ten chemicals up for evaluation, many of which are used in consumer products:
- 1, 4-Dioxane
- Carbon Tetrachloride
- Cyclic Aliphatic Bromide Cluster (HBCD)
- Methylene Chloride (MCL)
- N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP)
- Pigment Violet 29 Anthra [2,1,9-def:6,5,10-d’e’f] diisoquinoline-1,3,8,10(2H,9H)-tetrone
- Tetrachloroethylene (a.k.a perchloroethylene)
See the list, and EPA’s reasoning for its selections, here.
EPA will move forward with evaluating these ten chemicals. Each time EPA completes a risk evaluation, the law requires the Agency to begin another. By the end of 2019, EPA will be working on 20 chemical risk evaluations at any one time, as required by law.
