EPN Comments on TCE Regulation Under TSCA

On Tuesday, December 12, 2023, EPN submitted comments on EPA’s trichloroethylene (TCE) regulation under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). We commend EPA for proposing a ban on all uses of TCE in commerce. This is a health-protective proposal that meets the TSCA mandate to eliminate TCE’s unreasonable risks, and we urge EPA not to adopt a less protective Existing Chemical Exposure Limit (ECEL) or extend compliance periods. We also offer suggestions regarding public access to information.
