EPA Expands Access To Regulatory Info on Chemicals

EPA Expands Access To Regulatory Info on Chemicals

Agency says web tool makes finding chemical information under Toxic Substances Control Act easier

Farmers will now be able to access more regulatory information about all chemicals covered under the Toxic Substances Control Act via a new web tool provided by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The "ChemView" tool is expected to provide better access to chemical health and safety information and help users select the safest ingredients possible, according to James Jones, assistant administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. It displays safety data in an online format that allows comparison of chemicals by use and by health or environmental effects, EPA said.

Additionally, the web tool allows searches by chemical name or Chemical Abstracts Service number, use, hazard effect, or regulatory action. It can also create specialized views of information on multiple chemicals.

The new portal will also link to information on manufacturing, processing, use, and release data reported under the Chemical Data Reporting Rule, and the Toxics Release Inventory.

In the months ahead, EPA will be adding additional chemicals, functionality and links. When fully updated, the web tool will contain data for thousands of chemicals, EPA said.
