Four categories of hazardous chemicals according to EPA.

Rub-A-DUB-DUB Phthalates, which are used in some toys, are among the compounds included in EPA's action plan.

Environmental Protection Agency (Environmental Protection Agency) and the possibility of legislation - laws that will govern until the ban further production of these chemicals.

The target of this body is Phthalates, compounds such perfluorinate, polybrominate diphenyl ethers, and short circuit of chlorinate paraffins, which have defined rankaian between 10 and 13 carbon and three to 12 chlorines per molecule. EPA worried about the toksinitas from all of these chemicals and some of them may also not be eliminated, both bioakumulatif or bias.

The agency first announced the establishment of chemical action plan on December 31, 2009. Lisa P. Jackson as the Administrator of the EPA has set this plan as part of his efforts in reforming the management of chemicals (C & EN, May. 19, 2009, page 28).

"We will continue to use our powers under the legislation - the current legislation to protect Americans from chemical exposure to hazardous chemicals and chemicals highlights that we believe need attention," said Jackson.

Under this action plan, EPA regulations prohibit memeprtimbangkan or even prohibit the eight compounds Phthalates, all paraffins short circuit, and two types of compounds perfluorinate: perfluorinated sulfonates and perfluoroalkyl carboxylates. The agency does not seek to prohibit any kind of chemicals since 1989, when the federal court ban on asbestos mementahkan by the EPA.

In addition, EPA said that it will be proposed by a section of the Act - Substances Control Act - Toxic substances in 1976 that did not previously been used to allow these agencies to create a list of chemicals that "may result in a loss that does not make sense for the health and the environment. "The EPA said that it intended to add to the eight Phthalates and penta-, Octa-, and commercial decabromodiphenyl ethers (BDEs) to the list.

Inclusion in the general list suggests that "strong concern about the risks that these chemicals have the weight and attention to manage risk - the risk trsebut by this agency," EPA said. "Once registered, the chemical company can provide information to these agencies if they want to explain that the chemicals they contain no losses."

Also, EPA intends to add six compounds Phthalates on the Toxics Release Inventory later this year. Two of the remaining eight have been registered.

Through a legislative - the new regulations that have been planned, EPA will promote gradual elimination of commercial decaBDE voluntarily by a large manufacturer and the importer (C & EN, January 4, page 10). Laws - the invitation will require the EPA to review a new use of substances that can prevent fires before these chemicals can be returned back to the market.

American Chemistry Council, an association of chemical manufacturers, said that the initial series of chemical action plan from the EPA "seems to have been selected based on the smaller things than the nature of 'high profile' - his last - the end of this." Kimawi material selection process is, "so far, giving no evidence in the scientific approach to chemicals management," said ACC President of Calvin M. Dooley.
