Scope Documents for First 10 TSCA Chemical Risk Evaluations Now Available

Posted on 7/17/2017 by Roger Marks

TSCA-chemicals-2.jpgUS EPA has announced the availability of documents that lay out the scope of the risk evaluations EPA will perform on the first 10 chemicals identified for evaluation under TSCA, as revised by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (“The Lautenberg Law”).

These documents will inform EPA decision making as the Agency performs its chemical risk evaluations. Information found in each scope document includes:
  • Hazards of each chemical;
  • Exposure data;
  • Conditions of use; and
  • Potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulations.
EPA announced the first 10 chemicals up for TSCA risk evaluation, selected from a 2014 Work Plan, in December 2016.  

EPA will begin a new risk evaluation each time it finishes one. By 2019, EPA will be working on 20 chemical risk evaluations at any one time, as required by law.

See a full breakdown of the major changes to TSCA, as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, here.
