EPA Unveils Online Database on Chemicals' Safety

ChemView displays health and safety data, making it possible to compare chemicals by use and by health or environmental effects, and it allows searches by chemical name or Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number, use, hazard effect, or regulatory action

EPA launched ChemView, a web-based tool, on Sept. 9. It is intended to increase public access to chemical-specific regulatory information developed by EPA and data submitted under the Toxic Substances Control Act. It also will help chemical manufacturers differentiate their products by using safer ingredients, according to the agency.

"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," said James Jones, assistant administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. "The tool will make chemical information more readily available for chemical decision-makers and consumers."

ChemView displays health and safety data, making it possible to compare chemicals by use and by health or environmental effects, and it allows searches by chemical name or Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number, use, hazard effect, or regulatory action. It links to information on manufacturing, processing, use, and release data reported under the Chemical Data Reporting Rule and the Toxics Release Inventory.

EPA's announcement said additional chemicals, functionality, and links will be added soon. When fully updated, it will have data for thousands of chemicals.
