EPA Issues Four Chemical Action Plans Under TSCA

Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. - Client Alert, January 5, 2010

On December 30, 2009, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) posted chemical action plans for certain phthalates, long-chain perfluorinated chemicals, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and short-chain chlorinated paraffins.  Development of these chemical action plans targeting EPA’s chemicals of concern is a key component of EPA’s comprehensive approach to the enhancement of chemical management under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) announced on September 29, 2009.

EPA selected these chemicals for action plan development based on a number of factors, including presence in human blood; persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic characteristics; use in consumer products; and production volume.  The released action plans are based on EPA’s initial review of readily available use, exposure and hazard information on each particular chemical.

The full alert, with details on the four chemical action plans, is available here.
