The RMP's Emerging Contaminants Workgroup will review recent findings and new monitoring proposals on plastic additives like bisphenol A, flame retardants, water- and stain-repelling perfluorochemicals, and pesticides. The workgroup will also discuss plans to revise the RMP's overall strategy for monitoring contaminants of emerging concern (CECs). See the Agenda and Materials for more information.

Over the last decade, researchers and government agencies have begun to collect occurrence, fate, and toxicity data for a number of chemicals. Some of these chemicals have been classified as contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), often due to due to their high volume use, potential for toxicity in non-target species, and the increasing number of studies that report their occurrence in the environment.
