Several types of chemical information are needed including information on inherent chemical characteristics, chemical production and use, chemical release and exposure, and alternatives to hazardous chemicals. The Environmental Protection Agency and other government agencies and private services have developed many tools, models and estimation techniques for generating the needed data. New advances in computational toxicology can now provide “automated high-throughput” estimates of various chemical characteristics without the slow and costly chemical testing of the past. There are also significant efforts to improve chemical information transfer within supply chains and increase chemical information disclosure to the public.
