There are nearly two dozen Federal statutes governing toxic substances as well as a comparable number of Federal agencies responsible for the research, regulatory, and advisory provisions of these various acts. Effective integration of toxic substances activities requires an awareness and comprehension of the many Federal statutes involved as well as an understanding of the organizational structure and relevant activities of the agencies responsible for implementing these statutes. This document is an outgrowth of the efforts on the part of the staff of EPA's Office of Toxics Integration to develop the knowledge and expertise needed to integrate and coordinate Federal toxic substances regulatory activities. The scope of this first edition is limited to 17 offices located within 8 Federal agencies or departments which have a primary role in the control of toxic substances. The information on each office is divided into several sections. The first section describes the organization of the office and highlights those divisions, branches, etc., which are concerned with toxic substances. The second section summarizes the statutory authority for the office and briefly explains those subsections of the statute which pertain to toxics. The third section (for regulatory agencies only) highlights the regulatory development process followed by that agency. The final section briefly describes the various toxics-related programs and activities.
