The EPA has released the first determinations for four new chemicals under the new Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

This means the companies may commence manufacturing with these substances without waiting for the EPA to conduct further reviews.

Key Takeaways:

  • The 4 new chemicals have low potential to cause harm.
  • The chemicals have been dropped from further review.
  • No information was provided about potential aquatic release.
