                                PREFACE


This quarterly report reviews Agency progress in meeting its priority
program commitments.  The report is a major component of the Agency
Strategic Planning and Management System (SPMS).  SPMS provides a
process for the Agency to identify national goals and priorities, issue
timely guidance to the field, identify measures of success and track
progress against them.  Each quarter the Office of Management Systems
and Evaluation publishes the report using information provided by
Headquarters, regional offices and state agencies.  The Office of
Compliance Analysis and Program Operations is responsible for the
enforcement sections of this report.

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance and cooperation of the many
people throughout the environmental protection management network who
have made timely production of this report possible.

             IMPLEMENTATION OF REGISTRATION STANDARDS
THIS IS A REVISED MEASURE TO MORE ACCURATELY ASSESS PROGRESS FROM
THE INTERIM REGISTRATION STANDARD (RS) TO THE FINAL REGULATORY
STANDARD AND TOLERANCE REASSESSMENT  (FRSTR).

A RS ENTERS PRE-STAGE 1 WHEN IT HAS  BEEN SIGNED AND REMAINS THERE
UNTIL ALL REGISTRANT RESPONSES HAVE  BEEN PROCESSED.  EIGHT RSs
ENTERED PRE-STAGE 1 IN BOTH THE SECOND AND THIRD QUARTER, EXCEEDING
A CUMULATIVE TARGET OF 12.  56 RSs ARE IN THE PRE-STAGE  1 BASELINE,
AS OF 6/30/87.

STAGE 1 IS REACHED WHEN COMMITMENTS  FOR ALL OF THE GENERIC DATA
REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE AND THERE ARE NO OVERDUE GENERIC DATA
REQUIREMENTS, OR ACTION HAS BEEN INITIATED TO REMOVE PRODUCTS OR
UNSUPPORTED USES OF THE CHEMICAL FROM THE MARKETPLACE.

- DURING THE THIRD QUARTER, OPTS EXCEEDED ITS TARGET OF  SEVEN WITH
  18 RSS REACHING STAGE 1.  85 RSs ARE IN STAGE 1 BASELINE, AS OF
  6/30/87.

STAGE 2 IS REACHED WHEN ALL DATA TO  FULFILL GENERIC DATA COMMITMENTS
HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED.  DURING THE SECOND AND THIRD QUARTERS THREE
CHEMICALS REACHED STAGE 2, EXCEEDING ITS END-OF-YEAR TARGET OF ONE.
19 RSS ARE IN STAGE 2 BASELINE, AS OF 6/30/87.

STAGE 3 IS REACHED WHEN ALL STUDIES  HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED, REVIEWED,
AND ACCEPTED, AND A FINAL REGULATORY POSITION HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.

THE COMPLETION OF A FRSTR DURING FY  1987 IS NOT TARGETED UNTIL
THE FOURTH QUARTER.  TWO FRSTRs (METOLACHLOR AND ALLIETTE) ARE
IN STAGE 3 BASELINE AS OF 6/30/87.

O  THERE ARE CURRENTLY 66,000 CHEMICALS ON THE TSCA INVENTORY  (OF
   THESE, MORE THAN 3,600 HAVE UNDERGONE PREMANUFACTURE REVIEW AS PART
   OF THE NEW CHEMICALS PROGRAM).  OPTS ANNUALLY RECEIVES ABOUT 500
   REPORTS ON 100 CHEMICALS NOTIFYING THE AGENCY OF A POTENTIAL RISK.
   AFTER SCREENING, CHEMICALS OF CONCERN ENTER THE EXISTING CHEMICALS
   PIPELINE.
   TO DATE THE PROGRAM HAS SCREENED APPROXIMATELY 4,000 CHEMICALS.  THE
   PROGRAM HAS TAKEN 41 FINAL RISK MANAGEMENT ACTIONS* ON 35 CHEMICALS
   (12 OF THESE ACTIONS WERE ON PCBs) SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN 1979. OPTS
   REPORTS THAT THERE ARE CURRENTLY 62 CHEMICALS IN THE PIPELINE.
O  OPTS HAS COMPLETED ELEVEN RISK MANAGEMENT ACTIONS, AGAINST A
   CUMULATIVE THIRD QUARTER TARGET OF THIRTEEN (85%).
O  FOUR RISK MANAGEMENT ACTIONS WERE COMPLETED DURING THE THIRD
   QUARTER. THESE ACTIONS WERE TWO SECTION 5 SNURs  (NFRM) ON MBK AND
   11-AMINOUNDECANOIC ACID, A POLICY ON PCB'S:  HOW CLEAN IS CLEAN, AND
   A NPRM ON ASBESTOS - CONTAINING MATERIALS IN SCHOOLS.
* A FINAL RISK MANAGEMENT ACTION IS A SECTION 6 FINAL RULEMAKING
