GLRPPR Sector Resource: Design for the Environment Alternatives Assessments

Title:
Design for the Environment Alternatives Assessments

Abstract:
EPA uses alternatives assessments to look for safer chemicals. Design for the Environment (DfE) alternatives assessments are conducted as risk management actions when warranted for TSCA Work Plan Chemicals. They have also been conducted under Chemical Action Plans. Alternatives assessments characterize chemical hazards based on a full range of human health and environmental information. Chemical choices made based on these assessments can minimize the potential for unintended consequences that might occur in moving from a potentially problematic chemical to a poorly understood alternative, which could be more hazardous. This site is the portal for EPA's alternatives assessment projects.
