EPA says it will divide its long-awaited final dioxin reassessment into two parts and release the noncancer portion of the analysis by the end of January 2012. The cancer portion of the assessment will follow “as quickly as possible.” The agency’s decision to split the assessment into two sections follows SAB's release of its latest review of EPA's methodology. SAB says it generally endorses EPA's latest draft, but a dissenting member disagrees with the agency's carcinogenicity determination....

EPA is seeking feedback on a plan for prioritizing chemicals targeted for enhanced scrutiny under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The plan, or “discussion guide,” is a revised approach to the Chemical Action Plans, which EPA initiated in early 2010 and were seen as an important tool for strengthening EPA’s chemicals management program. The new approach has generated some concern among industry representatives that the proposed methodology would generate a large initial list of chemicals that would be stigmatized, despite EPA’s assurance that such a listing would not “in itself” mean the substance is considered to pose a risk....

U.S. EPA has made changes to the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) aimed at increasing the program’s clarity and transparency. Data also will be “rigorously edited to eliminate inconsistencies and address redundancies,” EPA says. The revisions are a direct response to recommendations on how to improve IRIS issued last April by the National Academy of Sciences. Industry says the recent changes are a step in the right direction, but more needs to be done. Executives maintain IRIS has for years been unable to keep pace with scientific developments, resulting in regulations that are based on incomplete or incorrect data....
