Risk Evaluation for
Risk evaluation initiated: December 19, 2016
Staff contact: Ana Corado
1-Bromopropane (1-BP) is currently undergoing risk evaluation under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). EPA is evaluating 1-BP because the 2016 amendments to TSCA directed EPA to pick its first ten chemicals for evaluation from the TSCA Work Plan, and 1-BP is on the Work Plan. In August 2019, EPA released the draft risk evaluation for 1-BP.
In the draft risk evaluation for 1-BP, EPA did not find unreasonable risk to the environment under any condition of use. The draft risk evaluation for 1-BP shows there could be unreasonable risks to workers, occupational non-users, and consumers under certain conditions of use. According to the agency, These initial determinations may change as the evaluation becomes more refined through the public and peer review process.
