After several years of debate the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was enacted into law in 1976. The purpose of the present project is to design, analyze, and assess alternative policies that might be used to address the problems TSCA might create for innovation, while maintaining the dominant thrust of TSCA to protect health and the environment from unreasonable risk of injury and disease. The ongoing policy discussions and the literature on technological innovation yield many suggestions of such policy options, and a major concern of this research has been to assess and analyze the potential of those options to contribute to the solution of the problem at hand in a cost-effective and responsible manner.
