U.S. EPA Toxic Substances Control Act
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pursuant to the Toxic Substance Control
Act (TSCA), maintains an inventory of chemical substances for which information under TSCA has
been filed for distribution and use within the United States. EPA regulations allow distribution of
