CHEMICAL PROFILES|Scorecard's Universe of Chemicals

Scorecard's universe of over 11,200 chemicals includes chemicals that are produced in large volumes in the U.S., chemicals that are covered by major federal or California regulatory programs, and chemicals with health effects, toxicity or exposure data available.

Scorecard relies on the U.S. EPA's list of High Production Volume chemicals to identify the chemicals that have annual production and/or importation volumes above 1 million pounds.

Scorecard includes the chemicals that are covered by twelve federal environmental laws and five California laws.

Scorecard includes all chemicals with health effects information or human health risk assessment values and chemicals that are subject to environmental monitoring or exposure estimation programs.
