Dear Colleagues:

This new tool with health and safety information on chemicals may be of 
interest to you or your colleagues.

Kristie Sullivan
Secretary, ASCCT

Begin forwarded message:

On Monday, September 9, 2013, EPA will launch a new web tool on chemical 
information. This new tool, called ChemView, will significantly improve access 
to chemical specific information developed by EPA and data submitted under the 
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

To accompany the launch, we would like to invite you to a webinar introducing 
ChemView to show you this new tool, answer your questions, and receive your 
feedback. Detailed information on the webinar, and how to participate, is at 
the end of this message.

ChemView displays key health and safety data in an online format that 
facilitates comparison of chemicals by use and by health or environmental 
effects. The search tool consolidates available TSCA information and provides 
more streamlined access to EPA assessments, hazard characterizations, and 
information on safer chemical ingredients. It allows searches by chemical name 
or Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number, use, hazard effect, or regulatory 
action. It has the flexibility to create tailored views of the information on 
individual chemicals or compare multiple chemicals sorted by use, hazard effect 
or other criteria. The new portal will also link to information on 
manufacturing, processing, use, and release data reported under the Chemical 
Data Reporting Rule, and the Toxics Release Inventory.

ChemView is targeted toward individuals who are familiar with data on 
chemicals, such as product formulators. By increasing health and safety 
information, as well as identifying safer chemical ingredients, manufacturers 
will have the information to better differentiate their products by using safer 
ingredients. In the months ahead, EPA will be adding additional chemicals, 
functionality and links. When fully populated, the portal will contain data for 
thousands of chemicals. EPA has incorporated stakeholder input into the design, 
and welcomes feedback on the current version of the site.

ChemView Launch Webinar-

When:  Monday, September 9, 2013, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm ET.
