Increased Access to Chemical Info Via ChemView App

USEPAThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has posted additional data and added new functions to ChemView, the USEPA’s publicly-accessible, one-stop online tool to find information for chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Searches can be conducted by chemical name or Chemical Abstracts Service number, use, hazard effect, or regulatory action.

The enhanced data functions include improving the display and content for the Chemical Data Reporting information; adding a new link that displays the pollution prevention information generated as part of the Toxics Release Inventory program; and launching an administrative tool that will save USEPA resources by streamlining the loading of future information.

The updated database now includes the following new information:

  • 244 consent orders
  • 1,205 additional Significant New Use Rules (SNURs) for new and existing chemicals
  • 16 additional chemicals with test rule data
  • Additions to the Safer Chemicals Ingredient List

This is the first time USEPA has posted consent orders and new chemical SNURs to ChemView. With these additions, ChemView now contains information on almost 10,000 chemicals.

USEPA is also encouraging people to complete a short customer satisfaction survey to help guide future improvements to ChemView. The survey asks about how people use ChemView, the usefulness of the tool, how it can be optimized to help advance chemical safety, and suggestions for additional content and functionality.
