In addition to providing an overview of EPA's implementation of TSCA, the report also provides information on the other programs under the purview of the OPPT. The report includes a series of 5 appendices with additional information about the office generally and several regulations specifically.

December 2003
EPA also published a report, EPA Authorities Under TSCA, to "outline of the tools OPPT has under TSCA to achieve its mission; the situations under which each of these tools may be employed; and the considerations that affect OPPT's determination of which tool is best suited for a given situation. Four questions are answered within the body of each of the tools discussions: 1) How does it work? 2) Who is involved? 3) What does it take? 4) When is it used?"
