AnnouncementThe Chemical Assessment and Management Program (ChAMP) has been superseded by the comprehensive approach to enhancing the Agency’s current chemicals management program announced by Administrator Lisa Jackson on September 29, 2009.
The Chemical Assessment and Management Program (ChAMP) was designed to develop screening-level hazard, exposure, and risk characterizations for chemicals produced or imported in quantities of 25,000 pounds or greater a year. ChAMP has been superseded by the comprehensive approach to enhancing the Agency’s current chemicals management program announced by Administrator Lisa Jackson on September 29, 2009.

Basic Information -- Read about ChAMP, including why it was developed and its chemical assessment and management activities.
About Chemical Prioritizations -- Read how EPA prepared prioritizations to determine appropriate next steps for both High Production Volume (HPV) and for Moderate Production Volume (MPV) chemicals – those produced in quantities between 25,000 to 1 million pounds per year.
Chemical Prioritizations -- Access the Risk-Based and Hazard-Based Prioritization documents by searching by Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) registry number or chemical or chemical category name.
Hazard Characterizations -- Read about and access hazard characterizations for HPV chemicals that EPA developed.
TSCA Inventory Reset -- Read about EPA's effort to update and reset the TSCA Inventory to more accurately reflect the chemicals that are currently being used in commerce in the United States.
Inorganic HPV Challenge Program -- Read about the Agency's plan to develop and implement a phased, multi-year program for inorganic HPV chemicals that will provide the Agency, industry, and the public with more complete hazard information on inorganic HPV chemicals.
Related Programs -- Read about programs related to ChAMP, such as its precursors and those that have supplied its underlying elements, including the HPV Challenge Program, HPV Information System (HPVIS), and the Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule.
