The US EPA recently created ChemView, a web portal for chemical data, which currently contains information on more than 1,500 chemicals. It improves access to health and safety data on chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), provides content related to hazard characterizations, alternative assessments through test data submitted to EPA, and TSCA regulatory actions. The site is not fully populated and in the months ahead additional data will be added. Users can search the chemical database via individual chemical, health/environmental impact, use, and chemical category or group.
A webinar about Chemview, “Introducing EPA’s ChemView” is being broadcast on January 7, 2-3 pm (CST), being sponsored by the Healthy Building Network. Registration for the webinar is available here.
