Momentous changes initiated in 2021 will continue to influence policy development and rulemakings in 2022. Administration appointments in political leadership positions have been filled. New policies and priorities have been unveiled, and with Democrats in control, a more encouraging attitude toward regulation and regulatory initiatives has taken root.

Notwithstanding the emphasis declared by the White House about the issues of climate change and environmental justice for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Administration will continue to be challenged in having to address many other competing priorities. For EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP), emphasis on science integrity, reviewing decisions made by the Trump Administration in both the pesticide and industrial chemicals programs, meeting statutory deadlines looming over the work of both programs, and dealing with the constant problem of EPA-wide competing priorities will drive the OCSPP program budget and regulatory priorities.
