EPA Seeks Public Comment on First Batch of Draft Scope Documents
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on April 6, 2020, that the first set of draft scope documents for the next group of chemicals undergoing risk evaluation under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is available for comment. EPA released draft scope documents for 13 of the next 20 chemicals undergoing risk evaluation, and stated that it will soon release and accept public comments on the seven remaining draft scope documents. As is the case on all TSCA Section 6 actions taken by EPA, the scoping documents released yesterday are substantial documents that will require thorough review by stakeholders. This is especially true if any of the 13 substances is in a company’s supply chain.
