EPA Releases Next Version of “Secret Science Rule”

This week, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a supplemental notice of proposed rule-making of its Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science rule – often referred to as the Secret Science rule. The supplemental proposed rule significantly expands the scope of the earlier proposed rule to cover all “influential science” used by the agency. The proposed rule also creates either tiered access to confidential data or weighs studies depending on how much data can be shared with public. The rule has a 30-day public comment period.

The ATS continues to have strong concerns with the proposed rule and will share our concerns with the Administration.
