It appears that the EPA is running out of work and they are now crossing over on the authority of the Department of Labor - OSHA. Then there is the positive requirement of CAS labeled chemicals and the Safety Data Sheets that are not a part of the EPA Authority. Remember, the EPA was formed by Executive Order ?????
