EPA increases public access to chemical data.
The Environmental Protection Agency moved on Tuesday to increase the amount of data made available to the public on regulated chemicals.
The changes are being made to its “one-stop online tool” called ChemView, the agency said, which provides information on chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
“In the absence of Treform, EPA is moving ahead to improve access to chemical health and safety information, and increase the dialogue to help the public choose safer ingredients used in everyday products,” said James Jones, assistant administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.
“The additional data along with a customer satisfaction survey will make chemical information more readily available for decision-makers and consumers,” Jones added.
The new functions include improving the display and content for the reporting tool, and new links to pollution prevention information.
