May 25 – US: EPA Adds Thousands of Chemicals, Facilities to Public Database

From environmental leader:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has added more than 6,300 chemicals and 3,800 chemical facilities regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to a public database called Envirofacts.

As part of the agency’s policy to increase public access to information on chemicals, the Envirofacts database offers a single point of access on the Internet for information about environmental activities that may impact air, water and land in the U.S. It also provides tools for analyzing the data.

The database also provides detailed information about chemical facilities including  facility name and address information, aerial image of the facility and surrounding area, map location of the facility, and links to other EPA information on the facility, such as the agency’s inspection and compliance reports that are available through the Enforcement Compliance History Online (ECHO) database. EPA is also adding historic facility information for another 2,500 facilities.
