The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is making additional information about new chemical notices available to the public on the agency’s website. Visitors to the updated chemical review status tracker can view and search monthly updates for any active Premanufacture Notice, Significant New Use Notice and Microbial Commercial Activity Notice of interest by case number. This tool will continue to keep confidential business information confidential.
“By making this tracker available online, for the first time the public will easily be able to learn where a particular new chemical is in the EPA review process,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.
Visitors to the site will be able to download a spreadsheet with a list of all active cases and each case’s status. This enhancement supplements the existing status tables describing the received date, the interim status, and final determinations for each case reviewed by EPA since the amendments to Toxic Substances Control Act were passed in 2016.
