EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) requested that the EPA Science Advisory Board (SAB) review the supporting science, functionality, and appropriate use of software known as the Estimation Programs Interface (EPI) Suite. OPPT has supported the development of this software for estimating the behavior of chemical substances in a biological or environmental system based on their physical, chemical and environmental properties. EPI Suite is routinely used in evaluating new chemicals under EPA's Premanufacture Notices (PMNs) for new chemicals under section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act, and is widely used for predicting physical/chemical properties and environmental fate and transport properties for chemicals already in commerce.
