Advisory Groups

Forum on State and Tribal Toxics Action Pollution Prevention Project
EPA created the Forum on State and Tribal Toxics Action (FOSTTA) in 1991 in an effort to improve communication with states and tribes. The forum expanded to include the FOSTTA Pollution Prevention (P2) Project in order to secure the counsel of senior state and tribal officials with an interest in and knowledge of pollution prevention issues and programs to help guide P2 activities in the EPA. Membership in FOSTTA is open to state and tribal environmental and health officials and is limited to two years, subject to renewal. The P2 Project participants serve as individual experts rather than as representatives of their respective state or tribe's positions on multi-media P2 issues. This group addresses pressing P2 and toxics related issues and improves communication and coordination among states, tribes and EPA. FOSTTA supports four projects revolving around lead, toxics release inventory, chemical management and pollution prevention issues, as well as two workgroups on tribal and community based environmental protection.

National Pollution Prevention and Toxics Advisory Committee
The National Pollution Prevention and Toxics Advisory Committee ("NPPTAC" or "Committee") is the national advisory body to provide advice, information and recommendations on the overall policy and operation of programs managed by the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT), in performing its duties and responsibilities under the Toxics Substances Control Act (TSCA) and the Pollution Prevention Act (PPA).
