EPA Web Tool Expands Access to Scientific, Regulatory Information on Chemicals

“To improve chemical safety and provide more streamlined access to information on chemicals, EPA has built and is populating a new database. This new database, named ChemView, greatly improves access to health and safety data on chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). It contains information EPA receives and develops about chemicals including those on EPA’s Safer Chemical Ingredient List. ChemView is part of EPA’s commitment to strengthen its chemicals management programs by improving access to and the usefulness of chemical information. The goal is for people to easily get information they need to make safe chemical choices. It can help businesses, individuals and others make more informed decisions about the chemicals they use. While the current version of ChemView contains a substantial amount of information, when fully populated, ChemView will contain data for thousands of chemicals regulated under TSCA. In the months ahead, EPA will be continually adding chemicals, data, assessments, functionality, and links to source documents.”
