The Proposed Chronic Toxicity Test Standards (F.R.), written under Section 4(a) and 4(b) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), are designed to ensure the development of reliable and adequate test data for assessing the chronic health effects of natural and synthetic chemicals. Moreover, the testing requirements are not to create unnecessary economic barriers to technological innovation in the chemical industry. To fulfill these responsibilities, scientists and staff of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have reviewed the literature and discussed the significant scientific and economic issues both in Agency Workgroup meetings and with consultants and reviewers from outside the Agency. The results of this effort are reflected in detail in this Support Document and the Preamble to the Chronic Health Effects Standards.
