Announcements

October 7, 2014 – EPA has updated and improved ChemView, its one-stop database of chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). We have added more chemical information and improved usability, as well as introducing an easy way for you to tell us about additional improvements you would like to see.

To improve chemical safety and provide more streamlined access to information on chemicals, EPA has built and is populating a new database. This new database, named ChemView, greatly improves access to health and safety data on chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). It contains information EPA receives and develops about chemicals including those on EPA’s Safer Chemical Ingredient List.

ChemView is part of EPA's commitment to strengthen its chemicals management programs by improving access to and the usefulness of chemical information. The goal is for people to easily get information they need to make safe chemical choices. It can help businesses, individuals and others make more informed decisions about the chemicals they use.

While the current version of ChemView contains a substantial amount of information, when fully populated, ChemView will contain data for thousands of chemicals regulated under TSCA. In the months ahead, EPA will be continually adding chemicals, data, assessments, functionality, and links to source documents.

When using ChemView, if you do not receive results for a particular chemical, it does not mean EPA does not have information on that chemical; the data may not be posted yet but will be available in the future as EPA continues to populate the database. It does not contain any Confidential Business Information (CBI).

What’s in ChemView Right Now?

With this October, 2014 update, enhanced data functions now include improved display and content for the Chemical Data Reporting information and adding a new link that displays the pollution prevention information generated as part of the Toxics Release Inventory program. Additionally, we would like your participation in a survey that will tell us what enhancements you would like to see made to Chemview.

The updated database now includes the following new information: 244 consent orders, an additional 1,205 Significant New Use Rules (SNURs) for new and existing chemicals, 18 additional chemicals with test rule data, and updates to the Safer Chemicals Ingredient List (SCIL). This is the first time EPA has posted consent orders and new chemical SNURs to ChemView. With these additions, ChemView now contains information on almost 10,000 chemicals.

EPA has developed data templates to capture key information in a consistent summary format and provided links to the original source documents. At this time, users can find information organized in templates for the following types of data:

If the user needs background or more detailed information than provided in the summary templates, links are provided to the original source documents.

ChemView also contains links to other data, which is not yet summarized in uniform data templates, including:

As ChemView is populated, EPA will compile the summary level information and format it into easy-to-read data templates.

Stakeholder Input About the Database

EPA held several discussion forums to gather input on the types of information and portal design that would be useful. EPA appreciates the feedback and has incorporated it into the design and functionality of ChemView.
