Vantage Point

Gale Lea Rubrecht

This Toxics Issue of NR&E celebrates the upcoming fortieth anniversary of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in 2016. I hope that this issue will provide you with insights into the challenges surrounding the efforts to reform the nation’s chemical management law and help enable reform. The issue features an interview of Jim Jones, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP). EPA Assistant Administrator Jones explains OCSPP’s role and discusses, among other things, EPA’s work plan to prioritize chemicals, risk assessments and negotiated risk management for priority chemicals, confidentiality, bee health issues and neonicotinoids, nanomaterials regulation, and green chemistry.
