Summary

The EPA requires testing of chemical substances to insure that they do not present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment (TSCA §4). Manufacturers must provide the EPA with notice if they intend to manufacture a new chemical substance or use an existing chemical substance in a new way (TSCA §5).

The EPA has broad regulatory powers over the manufacture, processing, use, or disposal of chemical substances if those substances are found to potentially present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment (TSCA §6). The EPA can commence a civil action to seize a chemical substance or for other relief to protect against an imminently hazardous chemical substance (TSCA §7). The EPA may require recordkeeping and the submission of reports for inspection from manufacturers of chemical substances (TSCA §8).
