On Monday, September 9, 2013, EPA will launch a new web tool on chemical information. This new tool, called ChemView, will significantly improve access to chemical specific information developed by EPA and data submitted under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
 
To accompany the launch, we would like to invite you to a webinar introducing ChemView to show you this new tool, answer your questions, and receive your feedback. Detailed information on the webinar, and how to participate, is at the end of this message.
 
ChemView displays key health and safety data in an online format that facilitates comparison of chemicals by use and by health or environmental effects. The search tool consolidates available TSCA information and provides more streamlined access to EPA assessments, hazard characterizations, and information on safer chemical ingredients. It allows searches by chemical name or Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number, use, hazard effect, or regulatory action. It has the flexibility to create tailored views of the information on individual chemicals or compare multiple chemicals sorted by use, hazard effect or other criteria. The new portal will also link to information on manufacturing, processing, use, and release data reported under the Chemical Data Reporting Rule, and the Toxics Release Inventory.
 
ChemView is targeted toward individuals who are familiar with data on chemicals, such as product formulators. By increasing health and safety information, as well as identifying safer chemical ingredients, manufacturers will have the information to better differentiate their products by using safer ingredients. In the months ahead, EPA will be adding additional chemicals, functionality and links. When fully populated, the portal will contain data for thousands of chemicals. EPA has incorporated stakeholder input into the design, and welcomes feedback on the current version of the site.
