15 U.S. Code § 2606 - Imminent hazards
Where appropriate, concurrently with the filing of an action under subsection (a) of this section or as soon thereafter as may be practicable, the Administrator shall initiate a proceeding for the promulgation of a rule under section 2605(a) of this title.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in any action under subsection (a) of this section, the Administrator may direct attorneys of the Environmental Protection Agency to appear and represent the Administrator in such an action.
For the purposes of subsection (a) of this section, the term “imminently hazardous chemical substance or mixture” means a chemical substance or mixture which presents an imminent and unreasonable risk of serious or widespread injury to health or the environment. Such a risk to health or the environment shall be considered imminent if it is shown that the manufacture, processing, distribution in commerce, use, or disposal of the chemical substance or mixture, or that any combination of such activities, is likely to result in such injury to health or the environment before a final rule under section 2605 of this title can protect against such risk.
 So in original. Probably should be “Subpoenas”.
1992—Subsec. (a)(1). Pub. L. 102–550 substituted “section 2603 of this title, 2604 of this title, 2605 of this title, or subchapter IV of this chapter” for “section 2603, 2604, or 2605 of this title” in last sentence.
Pub. L. 102–550, which directed the insertion of “or subchapter IV of this chapter” after “2604”, was executed by making the insertion after “2604” the second time appearing in last sentence, to reflect the probable intent of Congress.
