Nanoscale materials may figure in Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform. While not mentioning “nanotechnology,” a bill introduced on April 15, by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) addresses chemicals with “special substantive characteristics.” The bill authorizes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to evaluate and compel data on new/special uses of existing chemicals “separate from any use of the chemical substance that does not exhibit such special substance characteristics” or on new chemical substances exhibiting such characteristics.
