The Environmental Protection Agency's 2013 work plan for chemical risk assessment under the Toxic Substances Control Act will include full assessments on four flame retardants, as well as 1-bromopropane, octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane and the solvent 1,4-dioxane, a solvent used in some household cleaning products. EPA is soliciting information on the chemicals through May 30. The agency also plans to conduct environmental fate investigations on eight other flame retardants.
