The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on February 14, 2024, the list of ten scientific experts selected to review the 2023 draft risk evaluation for tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (TCEP) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Biographies of these experts are available in docket EPA-HQ-OPPT-2023-0265. EPA states that it will hold a virtual public meeting on March 5, 2024, to review the documents and draft charge questions being posed to the reviewers and address any questions from reviewers and the public regarding the scope and clarity of the questions. EPA notes that the meeting “also gives the public the opportunity to ask questions about the documents with the letter peer reviewers present.” Registration is open until March 1, 2024, to attend the meeting. EPA expects the letter peer review to begin on March 13, 2024. EPA will use feedback received from public comments and the letter peer review to inform the final risk evaluation. More information on EPA’s draft risk evaluation is available in our December 21, 2023, memorandum.
