Explain New vs. Existing Chemicals under the TSCA program

The Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 (TSCA) is the primary chemical control regulation in the United States of America.  This act establishes the minimum requirements that apply to any business that manufactures or imports chemicals in the United States, including the legal definition of what is a “chemical” according to United States Law.  Understanding this regulation is necessary for anyone working in a field where chemicals are used in any industrial capacity. An understanding of this regulation also forms the basis for understanding other chemical regulation undertaken by other federal and state agencies, as well as the current debate about potential TSCA Reform.

The Toxic Substances Control Act forms the cornerstone of chemical regulation in the United States.  It differs significantly from other chemical regulatory systems that have been adopted in other countries.  Comprehending TSCA can provide insight into a wide range of activities undertaken by American industry, including manufacturing, product development, process engineering, and component selection.  This in turn has an effect on nearly every aspect of the American economy, since chemical substances play a role in every activity.
