Lynn L. Bergeson, “US EPA Releases Draft TSCA Chemical Risk Assessment,” Environmental Quality Management, Summer 2013.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) released its first draft risk assessments developed under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) “Work Plan Program” on January 4, 2013. The draft risk assessments cover particular uses of five chemicals found in household products. While the chemicals covered in these first draft assessments may or may not be of interest to Environmental Quality Management readers, the draft assessments can give us a sense of how the Agency is approaching this very important process.
