EPA’s Inspector General Releases “Quick Reaction Report” on Ebola Information

On January 21, EPA’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released a “Quick Reaction Report” on the information provided by EPA related to combating the Ebola virus.  More specifically, the Report addresses the completeness and consistency of information provided on the EPA website regarding disinfectants for use against the Ebola virus.

In short, the OIG offered two recommendations that have been accepted and acted upon by EPA’s Assistant Administrator for Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.  The recommendations are to:

  1. Modify the EPA’s List L Web page information to indicate the status of the EPA’s ATP testing on all products listed, and
  2. Ensure that all List L products are included on the ATP list, and product testing status is clearly reported.
