EPA Pubic Comment Period On Asbestos and other Chemicals Identified in TSCA List

Mar. 10, 2017

EPA is interested in information from the public about these chemicals including uses, products containing these chemicals, exposed populations, and alternatives to each of these chemicals. EPA has opened these dockets to receive information from the public and the deadline for comment is March 15. NOTE: EPA has informed us that it is more effective for them to receive several comments/letters from individuals than to receive one letter representing a group or an organization. EIA encourage all of our members to submit comment. We are providing sample letters submitted, one designed for school officials and one designed for environmental professionals. We encourage you to drop this text into your letterhead and revise for your use. We have also provided directions to submit. Please contact info@eia-usa.org or call 888-343-4342 if you have any questions.
