While triclocarban is not considered to be harmful to human health or to the environment at levels of exposure considered in the assessment, this substance is associated with ecological effects of concern. Changes in use patterns for triclocarban, such as using it as an alternative for chemicals with similar uses or functions, could lead to higher exposures. For this reason, the Government is considering follow-up actions to track changes in exposure or commercial use patterns for triclocarban. The activities may include conducting periodic environmental monitoring in surface water and sediment. The Government has also published draft FEQGs for triclocarban in water and sediment for a 60-day public comment period.
