On August 13, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed to designate 20 chemical substances as low-priority under the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act for the 21st Century amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The list of 20 low-priority chemical substances can be found here.

A final designation of low-priority means that the risk associated with the chemical substance is low, and risk evaluation for that chemical substance is not warranted at this time.

The proposal has been published in the Federal Register, and the public may submit relevant information and comments on the proposed designations by November 13, 2019.

Please contact Dr. Steve Bennett, Senior Vice President, Scientific Affairs, at sbennett@thehcpa.org with additional comments or questions.
