Paint Manufacturers Ask EPA to be more Transparent

The American Coatings Association (ACA) submitted commentary requesting that the EPA make the science based information regarding regulatory decisions publically accessible. The ACA expressed an interest in seeing the specific case studies and/or “dose response data and models” in which the Agency uses to justify making new or modifying existing rules.

It appears that paint professionals are not the only group that noticed the EPA was declaring how regulations were based on scientific need, but on many occasions the Agency data citations were not made available for independent validation.

In the case of “it’s complicated, trust us…we are the government and know what’s best”, we as paint professionals are in agreement with manufacturers, show the facts!
