EPA Posts Presentations from Meeting on New Chemicals Collaborative Research Program

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held a virtual public meeting on April 20-21, 2022, to provide an overview of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) New Chemicals Collaborative Research Program and give stakeholders an opportunity to provide input. As described in EPA’s draft document entitled “Modernizing the Process and Bringing Innovative Science to Evaluate New Chemicals Under TSCA,” the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) proposes to develop and implement a multi-year collaborative research program focused on approaches for performing risk assessments on new chemical substances under TSCA. EPA has posted the following presentations from the April 20-21, 2022, meeting:

More information on the meeting is available in our April 22, 2022, memorandum, and more information on EPA’s draft document is available in our March 14, 2022, memorandum. Written comments on the draft document are due May 10, 2022.

On Wednesday, April 20, 2022 I had the opportunity to testify on behalf of the NanoBCA at the EPA’s TSCA New Chemicals Collaborative Research Program Meeting. I would like to share my testimony with our nanotechnology community.


In addition to recommending events that are relevant to our nanotechnology community, NanoBCA offers our members the opportunity to participate in our monthly webinars. Our monthly webinars address topics involving the relationship between the science of nanotechnology and Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS), US Legislation, Covid-19, Education, Finance, Manufacturing and Foreign Policy.

Our next NanoBCA webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, May 25th at 2PM ET.




One of the benefits of NanoBCA membership is access to our previous webinars with America’s leading scientists and engineers.

We look forward to continuing our legacy relationships and welcoming a new generation of NanoBCA members.

I highly recommend the review of the EPA’s Virtual Public Meeting on New Chemicals Collaborative Research Program.
