US ITC removes 16 substances from priority testing list

In the US, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Interagency Testing Committee (ITC) has proposed revising the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List. The committee, which provides recommendations to the Environmental Protection Agency, proposes removing 16 substances from the list for a number of reasons. Some substances are included in the OECD's Screening Information Data Set (SIDS) programme, and others are being tested by producers.

The notice is open for public comment until 18 January 2013.
