EPA Goal 4: Ensuring the Safety of Chemicals
and Preventing Pollution
The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provide information online (householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov) for thousands of consumer products in the Household Products Database. This database provides information on the chemicals contained in brand-name products and the potential health effects of these chemicals to consumers, scientists, and other stakeholders.
CPSC staff will collaborate with the NLM to identify approaches to enhance the database to provide information on nanomaterials in consumer products. Staff will complete a status report with a template for data submission.
