The Environmental Protection Agency is opening 74 public dockets, one for each of the 73 remaining chemicals on the 2014 Update to the [Toxic Substances Control Act] Work Plan for Chemical Assessments… and an additional general docket for chemicals not on the Work Plan. Te Work Plan provides a list of existing chemicals for assessment under the Toxic Substances Control Act. The Environmental Protection Agency is also ‘interested in the public's input on chemicals not on the 2014 Update to the [Toxic Substances Control Act] Work Plan for Chemical Assessments for consideration as potential candidates for prioritization’ under the Act. ‘By providing the public with a venue for submitting use, hazard, and exposure information on these chemicals, the Environmental Protection Agency is facilitating the sharing of information by stakeholders and the general public that could update the information EPA currently has on the chemicals on the 2014 Update to the [Toxic Substances Control Act] Work Plan for Chemical Assessments. EPA will use this data to inform [Toxic Substances Control Act] prioritization and risk evaluation for these chemicals.’
