GLRPPR Sector Resource: Evaluating Risk of Existing Chemicals under TSCA

Title:
Evaluating Risk of Existing Chemicals under TSCA

Abstract:
Under TSCA EPA is now required to evaluate existing chemicals to determine whether they "present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment." Under the conditions of use for each chemical, EPA will assess the hazard(s), exposure(s), and the potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulations(s) the Agency plans to consider. This information will be used to make a final determination as to whether the chemical presents an unreasonable risk.

This page links to the risk evaluation process and docket numbers for each chemical currently under evaluation.
