Bisphenol A Under Increased Scrutiny for Health Effects

The EPA has added bisphenol A, a chemical used in the production of plastic goods, to the list of chemicals being studied for potential regulation. Health concerns arising from the volume of bisphenol A released into the environment have led to discussion on the need for further investigation. Click here for the full article.


  • Bisphenol A Under Increased Scrutiny for Health Effects
  • EPA Takes Action on Chemicals Used in Dyes, Flame Retardants, and Industrial Detergents

CIL has standards available to test for the different chemicals that may be present in consumables resulting from the manufacturing process. These chemicals are of concern due to their potential for health effects and the bioaccumulation of persistent chemicals. Plasticizers used in plastic containers, flame retardants used in children’s clothing and bedding and ubiquitous phthalate esters are some of the standards that can be found in this section. Laboratories testing materials for the presence, absence or overabundance of industrial chemicals can find isotopically labeled standards for their analysis.
