The Environmental Protection Agency this week released information from 2012 Chemical Data Reporting data, formerly known as the Inventory Update Reporting rule. Chemical companies submitted data for 7,674 chemicals. "Like previous chemical data reporting released to the public, this information will give EPA a clearer picture of how chemicals are used in commercial and consumer products, including in products intended for use by children," the American Chemistry Council said. "ACC supports EPA's efforts in the CDR to improve how EPA collects chemical information and releases it to the public."
