Evaluating Progress A Report on the Findings of the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Program Evaluation. 1997.

In the summer of 1995, the agencies charged with administering the Toxics Use Reduction Act began an evaluation of the Toxics Use Reduction program.  The agencies formed a planning group to coordinate the planning and implementation of the evaluation. The Toxics Use Reduction Institute spearheaded this effort. In designing the evaluation, the planning group obtained advice and assistance from a consultation group made up of representatives of various interested stakeholders. 

This report presents the findings of the TURA program evaluation. It draws together the results of several efforts:

  • Three significant studies conducted by independent contractors
  • An inventory and assessment of the programs and activities undertaken by the TURA agencies in fulfillment of the mandates of the Toxics Use Reduction Act
  • Analysis of the TUR data
