In September 2011, EPA's Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention engaged stakeholders on the process the Agency intends to use to identify existing chemicals for risk assessment under TSCA. Utilizing the input received, EPA developed a work plan that identifies existing chemicals for risk assessment over the next several years. EPA today posted the methodology for developing this work plan, the work plan chemicals identified using the methodology, and seven chemicals for risk assessment development in 2012. In addition, EPA posted an existing chemicals program strategy, which includes risk assessment and risk reduction, data collection and screening, and public access to chemical data and information.
