EPA Updates Toxic Substances Control Act Work Plan List

EPA Updates Toxic Substances Control Act Work Plan List | In Compliance Magazine

Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency added 23 chemicals to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Work Plan. Several of the new substances include bisphenol A (BPA), seven different phthalates, and two flame retardants. Additionally, the agency removed 15 chemicals and groups from the TSCA work plan. This list includes chemicals that are monitored when used in children’s products, being carcinogenic, or meet other specific criteria.

The new 23 chemicals added to the list will be assessed after 2017. Depending on the assessment findings, the agency could regulate the use of the chemical, collaborate with industry leaders to reduce exposure, or for specific uses, the chemical poses no concerns. The full TSCA Work Plan includes 90 chemicals and chemical groups.
