List of Chemicals for Assessment

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is continuing implementation of its Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Work Plan and Action Plan efforts by beginning assessments on 23 chemicals in 2013, including 20 flame retardant chemicals. EPA will conduct full risk assessments on three non-flame retardant chemicals and four flame retardant chemicals, as part of structurally similar groups. See EPA’s Plans for 2013 Assessments and the TSCA Work Plan Chemicals Web page for more information on how the chemicals were identified and the plans for assessment.
