For the First Time in 40 Years EPA to Put in Place a Process to Evaluate Chemicals that May Pose Risk

2017-01-13T07:00:00-05:00

WASHINGTON--The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is moving swiftly to propose how it will prioritize and evaluate chemicals, given that the final processes must be in place within the first year of the new law's enactment, or before June 22, 2017. "After 40 years we can finally address chemicals currently in the marketplace," said Jim Jones, EPA's Assistant Administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. "Today's action will set into motion a process to quickly evaluate chemicals and meet deadlines required under, and essential to, implementing the new law."
