Who uses NCCTs research, results, and methods?
NCCT’s research is still in a stage of development, having been in existence only two years. The program was developed in close consultation with a number of clients within the Agency, namely the National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA/ORD); the Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances (OPPT); and the Office of Water (OW). NCCT’s research portfolio, which has been reviewed by a panel of external scientists, aims to achieve a number of short and long term objectives that will meet the needs of these immediate clients. In the long run, the public will benefit from an EPA that is more effective at assessing chemical risks and hazards.
