In 2007, the US made a commitment to complete initial risk assessments and take appropriate action on over 6750 chemicals produced or imported at amounts above 25,000 pounds annually by 2012. This commitment, which is now known as the Chemical Assessment and Management Program (ChAMP) will build on the work and assessments carried out under the HPV (High Production Volume) Chemical Challenge Program, but will also include moderate production volume chemicals. During a conference in March 2008, options were outlined for the further development of ChAMP; visit the US Environmental Protection Agency’s website at for further details.
