On August 11, 2020, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the final risk evaluation for 1-bromopropane (1-BP).  After evaluating 25 conditions of use, EPA determined that 16 present an unreasonable risk to workers, occupational non-users (ONU), consumers, and bystanders.  EPA found no unreasonable risk to the environment from any conditions of use and no unreasonable risks to the general population.  According to EPA, the next step in the process required by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is developing a plan to reduce or eliminate the unreasonable risks found in the final risk evaluation.  For more information, please read the full memorandum.
