Product Description

What’s New in the TSCA Reform Legislation and How it will Impact Your Business?

 

One of the primary authorities of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is related with regulation and evaluation of chemicals, is known as The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). TSCA, passed 40 years ago in 1976, was intended to ensure if chemicals were safe for the intended usage. Though originally effective, this regulatory framework today is outdated according to many.

Many states are developing their own chemical regulatory laws, and this is leading to a patchwork of regulations which become burdensome and contradictory for the chemicals industry. In order to respond to this tricky situation, the US Congress started exploring options that will help modernize and reform TSCA. Out of these efforts, was born the development of TSCA reform legislation, and it was passed by the House in May 2016 and Senate in June 2016.

This session by expert speaker Lowell Randel is intended to review the final legislative package that was approved, what final reform provisions were included and how the new TSCA programs will operate. Get insights into the next step of implementing the law, and understand the TSCA policy changes, and its potential impact on your business.

The session will help you get insights on how to stay ahead of policy changes and prepare for new regulatory responsibilities, and also provide tips on how to engage with policy officials to provide input on the regulatory implementation of policy changes.
