Fix Implementation Now Before It Is Too Late

Telly Lovelace

Chemistry is inextricably linked to innovation and scientific advancements needed to accomplish a wide range of our nation’s and the world’s goals. And Americans agree. According to a recent Morning Consult poll conducted on behalf of ACC, seven in ten adults agreed that chemistry is essential to our economy and plays a vital role in innovation and the creation of products and technologies needed to accomplish a wide range of supply chain, climate, sustainability, energy efficiency, and infrastructure goals.1

Unfortunately, EPA has been implementing policy changes that run counter to congressional intent, counter to the bipartisan compromise that made TSCA modernization possible, and that inhibit American innovation and the ability to compete in the global market.

If the U.S. is to remain a global leader in innovation, TSCA must be a reliable and fully functioning program. Promoting the safe use of the essential products of chemistry is a shared responsibility of manufacturers, the government, and those who use or sell chemical products.

Of bipartisan adults agree that chemistry is essential to our economy and plays a vital role in innovation.
Believe that EPA meeting its 90-day deadline requirement is very important to R&D, jobs and the development of new sustainable chemistries.
Of adults also feel that when personal protective equipment (PPE) is required by law, EPA should consider the use of PPE in its risk evaluations.
Of adults prefer that EPA make multiple determinations of risk rather than labeling the whole chemical as presenting risk.

1 Morning Consult poll on behalf of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) was conducted between April 9-April 11, 2022, among a sample of 2210 Adults. The interviews were conducted online, and the data were weighted to approximate a target sample of adults based on gender, educational attainment, age, race, and region.
