The Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976
This storyboard does not have a description.
The EPA can track 75,000 industrial chemicals produced/imported in the US and prohibits the production of illegal chemicals. This does not include food, cosmetics, drugs, pesticides, radioactive materials, and tobacco products.
The Environmental Protection Agency screens chemicals that potentially pose a threat to the environment and humans.
62,000 chemicals were never tested because they were grandfathered in during the creation of The Toxic Substance Control Act. None of these chemicals were ever considered as a risk factor. These are called existing chemicals; manufacturers have to report data on risk and adverse health effects.
