The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has added more than 6300 chemicals and 3800 chemical facilities regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to a public database called Envirofacts. “The addition to Envirofacts will provide the American people with unprecedented access to information about chemicals that are manufactured in their communities,” said Steve Owens, assistant administrator for the EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. “This is another step EPA is taking to empower the public with information on chemicals in their communities.”

The Envirofacts database is the EPA’s single point of access on the Internet for information about environmental activities that may affect air, water and land in the U.S and provides tools for analyzing the data. It includes facility name and address information; an aerial image of the facility and surrounding area; the map location of the facility; and links to other EPA information on the facility, such as the EPA’s inspection and compliance reports that are available through the Enforcement Compliance History Online (ECHO) database. The EPA is also adding historic facility information for another 2500 facilities.
