The annual Synthetic Organic Chemicals (SOC) reports provided information on U.S. production and sales of synthetic organic chemicals and the raw materials from which they are made. Chapter 1 of each report presents more information on the scope of the reports; the authority under which the data were collected; and the method used to collect the data.
The SOC was terminated per the request of the Committee on Ways and Means (Committee) of the U.S. House of Representatives in a letter dated October 17, 1995. The last annual SOC report was published in 1995; it contains 1994 data, as well as a copy of the Committee's letter.
