Environmental Impacts and Regulations of Chemical Products

Government agencies regulate the application, use, and production of chemicals because they 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.
