"Advocates Call EPA 'Forever Chemical' Testing Announcement Insufficient"

"The Biden administration will require new testing on some “forever chemicals,” but advocates are disappointed in what they characterized as insufficient requirements.  

In response to a petition from North Carolina environmental groups asking the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to study 54 chemicals further, the agency said it would require companies to conduct tests on seven of the chemicals the groups identified.

It also said that these chemicals are similar to 14 others from the petition and that it will test for four chemicals that are not part of the groups’ request, but that are similar to nine of the chemicals."
