As EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson is currently focused on improving the agency's chemicals management program, while also expanding its transparency, the release of such studies will likely increase public access to both health and safety information regarding chemicals that are developed in the U.S.
"EPA is [presently] increasing the availability of critical health and safety studies on chemicals that children and families are exposed to every day. We are making important progress in [ensuring] this information [is] public [in order to give] the American public easy access to it," said Steve Owens, assistant administrator for EPA's Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. "Over the next year, we expect to review several thousand additional studies on industrial chemicals and [plan to] make many of these more accessible to the public."
