EPA, industry score low on toxics test

Abstract:
In news that is not boding well for the future of nanomaterial safety testing, Environmental Science & Technology today reports that the chemical industry fails to deliver on its promise to identify chemical hazards:

Even by the standard of a "gentleman's C", it's a failure. The chemical industry deserves a "D" for not providing the U.S. EPA with data it promised years ago as part of a voluntary chemicals testing program, according to a new report card from Environmental Defense (ED), an advocacy group. The poor performance of the EPA-sponsored High Production Volume (HPV) Chemical Challenge adds fuel to calls from environmentalists, academics, and even some industry representatives for overhauling U.S. chemicals management laws, experts say.
