New USEPA Tool: ChemView
September 9, 2013 - Kestrel Management
The USEPA recently announced the launch of a new web-based tool, ChemView, designed to significantly improve access to chemical-specific regulatory information.
According to James Jones, assistant administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, in a USEPA press release, “This online tool will improve access to chemical health and safety information, increase public dialogue and awareness, and help viewers choose safer ingredients used in everyday products.”
The ChemView web tool displays key health and safety data in an online format that allows comparison of chemicals by use and by health or environmental effects. The search tool combines available TSCA information and provides streamlined access to EPA assessments, hazard characterizations, and information on safer chemical ingredients.
