ACToR aggregates data from over 1000 public sources on over 500,000 environmental chemicals searchable by chemical name, other identifiers and by chemical structure. The data warehouse: Allows users to search and query data from other EPA chemical toxicity databases including: ToxRefDB (30 years and $2 billion worth of animal toxicity studies); ToxCastDB (data from screening 1,000 chemicals in over 500 high-throughput assays); ExpoCastDB (consolidate and link human exposure and exposure factor data for chemical prioritization); DSSTox (provides high quality chemical structures and annotations). Includes chemical structure, physico-chemical values, in vitro assay data and in vivo toxicology data. Includes, but not limited to, high and medium production volume industrial chemicals, pesticides (active and inert ingredients), and potential ground and drinking water contaminants.

The Health and Environmental Research Online (HERO) database provides an easy way to view the scientific literature behind EPA science assessments. The database includes more than 300,000 scientific articles from the peer-reviewed literature used by EPA to develop its Integrated Science Assessments (ISA) that feed into the NAAQS review. It also includes references and data from the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), a database that supports critical agency policymaking for chemical regulation. Risk assessments characterize the nature and magnitude of health risks to humans and the ecosystem from pollutants and chemicals in the environment. New studies are continuously added so scientists can keep abreast of new research. References are then sorted, classified and made available through HERO.
