The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) gives EPA the authority to take action to address unreasonable risks to public health or the environment from chemicals currently on the market. If at the end of the risk evaluation process, EPA determines that a chemical presents an unreasonable risk to health or the environment, the agency must immediately start the risk management process to reduce or eliminate these risks.

Input from all stakeholders is critical to the risk management process. EPA is committed to developing risk management actions for chemicals in a way that is transparent and includes proactive, meaningful outreach and education with the public and other stakeholders.
