Improvements to New Chemicals Website Increase Transparency

EPA has updated its new chemicals statistics webpage to make it easier
to find and understand how many chemicals are in each stage of the new
chemical review process. The page now includes a flow chart showing
the number of new chemicals cases (PMNs, SNUNs and MCANs) at each
stage of review and detailed descriptions of each step in the process.

These changes are the first step in a larger effort to increase the
transparency of the new chemicals program and ensure stakeholders and
the public can quickly and easily view EPA's progress in reviewing new
chemicals submissions as the Agency receives them.
