  • EPA’s 2014 rankings on hazard, exposure, and persistence & bioaccumulation characteristics of these chemicals in its TSCA Work Plan for Chemical Assessments;
  • Examples of consumer, commercial, and industrial uses; and
  • National production volume (i.e., volume produced and imported into the U.S.) for 2011 based on EPA’s 2012 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) information. (Note the 2012 data are the latest publicly available. EPA recently completed its collection of 2016 data, but they are not yet publicly available.)
