DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 20 pages
Congress passed the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in 1976, authorizing the EPA to obtain info. on the risks of industrial chemicals and to control those that EPA determines pose an unreasonable risk. However, EPA does not have sufficient chemical assessment info. to determine whether it should establish controls to limit public exposure to many chemicals that may pose substantial health risks. There should be statutory changes to provide EPA with authority to obtain health and safety info. from the chemical industry. This testimony addresses EPA's options for: (1) obtaining info. on the risks posed by chemicals to human health and the environ.; (2) controlling these risks; and (3) publicly disclosing info. provided by chemical co. under TSCA.
