>I am interested in the specific methodology that will be used by EPA to evaluate risks of new chemicals, all of which must be evaluated prior to being released to commerce. This specific methodology is yet to be established. Can we assume it will be the methodology in the latest TSCA Work Plan? If so, do we think that is the best methodology?

People who are interested in this discussion and who can get to the ACS national meeting in Philadelphia next month might be interested in a symposium the Division will be sponsoring on Wednesday morning on "Chemical Safety in Public Policy". One of the presentations will be "What you need to know about TSCA reform". Other presentations will discuss various aspects of the policy making process and the ACS role in it.

I believe that this symposium will be recorded and made available to ACS members as part of the ACS web presence as well.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
