Reducing Risks from Specific Chemicals

More on Reducing Risks from Specific Chemicals

OPPT develops regulations and policies designed to reduce risks to human health and the environment from several specific priority chemicals, known as National Program Chemicals. The National Program Chemicals include chemicals that have specific statutory requirements (e.g., lead, asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)) as well as other multimedia pollutants of concern (e.g., mercury and dioxin).
