Environmental Impacts and Regulations of Chemical Products

Government agencies regulate the application, use, and production of chemicals because they can have negative effects on the environment. For example, chemical products can contaminate:

  • Air
  • Water
  • Ground

Therefore, many chemicals need to be approved by government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other agencies who regulate the use of such products.
