Event Description

Find Out How the Current Implementation and Enforcement of Toxic Substances Control Act Works, and the Effects of Proposed Legislative Changes

The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act is the first major overhaul to the current beleaguered US chemical regulatory system in many decades. As such, the development and introduction of such "legacy" legislation has a long, storied and controversial history. The proposal to overhaul the current Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) poses a number of significant challenges to compliance, implementation and enforcement at all levels of government and industry. Despite these existing shortcomings, the conditions are such that the current Congress and President could pass the Lautenberg Act and usher in a new and arguably needed era of chemical product safety & assessment in the United States that can take advantage of the substantial recent technical and scientific advances related to the safety assessment of chemical products.

Duties assigned to employees who work in "Regulatory Affairs" are not taught in college or vocational schools. One of the best ways to learn how to be effective in regulatory affairs is to learn directly from those doing it. Nationally renowned speaker Erik R. Janus, who is also an environmental health science, risk assessment and regulatory toxicology expert with over 20 years of experience, will shed light on the upcoming regulatory compliance issues, and also provide helpful hints and resources for all levels of experience. Small companies or those newer to the field may benefit particularly from the knowledge imparted during the presentation.

This 60-minute webinar will describe the recently proposed overall of the major statue (Toxic Substance Control Act, TSCA) that regulates the use of industrial chemicals in the United States. Erik will critically review the recently proposed "Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act", and provide an overview of the background and history of this legislative effort and the proposed changes and effects of implementation on the regulated community.
