Tracking TSCA Chemical Risk Evaluations

Posted on 1/19/2021 by Roger Marks

EPA has now completed all ten of its first scheduled chemical risk evaluations required under TSCA, as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act or LCSA.

The First Ten 

EPA released a list of the first ten chemicals to undergo risk evaluation under the reformed TSCA process five years ago, in Winter 2016.

Scope documents for the first ten TSCA chemical risk evaluations were released in July 2017. 

Chemical name CASRN Latest EPA Action
1, 4 Dioxane 123-91-1 Final Risk Evaluation
1-bromopropane (1-BP) 106-94-5 Final Risk Evaluation
Asbestos (Part 1: Chrysotile Asbestos) 1332-21-4 Final Risk Evaluation
Carbon Tetrachloride  56-23-5 Final Risk Evaluation
Cyclic Aliphatic Bromide Cluster (HBCD) 25637-99-4, others Final Risk Evaluation
Methylene Chloride (MCL) 75-09-2 Final Risk Evaluation
N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) 872-50-4 Final Risk Evaluation
Pigment Violet 29 (PV29) 81-33-4 Final Risk Evaluation
Trichloroethylene (TCE) 79-01-6 Final Risk Evaluation
Perchloroethylene (PCE)  127-18-4 Final Risk Evaluation

In addition to the ten final risk evaluations EPA issued, the agency also created new restrictions for a handful of persistent, bioaccumulative toxic (PBT) chemicals that the law called out for immediate action.

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.

Troy Yonkers

HSES Representative

I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.

Gregory Thompson

Environmental, Health & Safety Regional Manager

The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.

I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
