Important State-Based Chemical Regulatory Programs, Future and Impact on Industry

In the absence of action at the federal level to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act, there has been a proliferation of state-based chemical policies and laws that have created a "patchwork" of regulation in the US marketplace.  These state laws are not coordinated, have different mandates regarding products safety testing and labeling, and threaten to raise the cost of goods, particularly for small businesses.

State policies and regulations are playing an increasingly important role in the regulation of chemicals used in commerce, such as consumer products, household goods, fertilizers, flame retardants, plasticizers and products intended for children. Not only are specific laws and policies being introduced that target individual chemicals and groups of chemicals, but there are broader policy frameworks being put in place that manage chemical risks, mandating safer alternatives and green chemistry programs, and promote provision of more information on “high priority” chemicals.

This session by our expert speaker, Erik R. Janus, will review the major state-based chemical regulatory programs and statutes, including children's products, green chemistry initiatives and classes of chemicals specifically targeted in the laws (such as flame retardants, styrofoam and bisphenol A).  Erik will discuss the potential for federal pre-emption of these state programs by future federal reforms and provide tips for businesses on how to stay compliant with the various state laws. He will also look at major on-the-horizon state developments.

This program is intended to provide an overview of the most important state-based chemical regulatory programs relevant to industry as well as provide insight into the future of both state and federal regulatory programs. It is designed for the layperson to gain a greater knowledge of the ever-expanding maze of state-based programs and insight on how to manage these requirements.

Session Objectives:

  • Review the major state chemical regulatory statutes currently being enforced
  • Review the proposed statutes that are being actively considered by state legislatures
  • Provide detailed knowledge of the California Green Chemistry Initiative
  • Help you understand the potential marketplace impacts from individual state programs as well as the lack of a more comprehensive national policy
  • Provide recommendations and tips for interacting with state and federal governments
