HPVIS - Making HPV Available Online

More on Managing Existing Chemicals

The High Production Volume Information System (HPVIS) was developed to assist in the collection, review and reporting of High Production Volume chemicals. The information contained in HPVIS provides critical basic information about the environmental fate and potential hazards associated with these chemicals.

HPVIS contains data on more than 50 endpoints organized into the following four endpoint areas:

When combined with information about exposure and uses (e.g., from the Inventory Update Reporting rule), the HPVIS data will enable EPA and others to evaluate potential health and environmental hazard and exposure and identify priorities for appropriate follow-up action.
