Description
 
In 1976, Congress passed the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to provide the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the authority to obtain more information on chemicals and to regulate those chemicals that EPA determines pose unreasonable risks of injury to human health or the environment. EPA has found much of TSCA difficult to implement ńˇţ hampering the agencyńˇ╗s ability to obtain certain chemical data or place limits on chemicals. Of the thousands of chemicals listed for commercial use in the U.S., EPA has used its authority to limit or ban five chemicals since TSCA was enacted. In 2009, EPA announced TSCA reform principles to inform ongoing efforts in Congress to strengthen the act, and also initiated a new approach for managing toxic chemicals with the goal of ensuring chemicalsńˇ╗ safety using its existing authorities. This report evaluated EPAńˇ╗s efforts to strengthen its management of chemicals. Table and figure. This is a print on demand report.
