List: Bioaccumlative Chemicals of Concern (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)
Description
The U.S. EPA's "Final Water Quality Guidance for the Great Lakes System" identifies specific chemicals that will be subject to stringent regulatory controls. These bioaccumulative chemicals of concern (BCCs) include any chemical that has the potential to cause adverse effects after release to surface waters due to bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms (the bioaccumulation factor must be greater than 1000, after considering metabolism and other physicochemical properties).
