EPA announced the new on line data base ChemView where the public can find information the agency has received under TSCA and hazard and risk assessments it has done under the IRIS and DfE programs, as well as Significant New Use Rules (SNURs) on existing chemicals.  It doesn't include all chemicals yet, but the agency is working on it.

"The goal is for people to easily get information they need to make safe chemical choices. It can help businesses, individuals and others make more informed decisions about the chemicals they use."

You can search on a variety of attributes on chemical names and CAS numbers or even classes of chemicals and end points.  Have fun!
