The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) represents one of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) primary authorities related to the evaluation and regulation of chemicals. TSCA, passed 40 years ago in 1976, was intended to ensure that chemicals were safe for their intended use. While this regulatory framework was originally effective, many believe the system is now outdated. States have begun developing their own laws to regulate chemicals, leading to a patchwork of regulations that, at times, are contradictory and burdensome for industry.
In response, Congress has been exploring options to reform and modernize TSCA. In 2015, bipartisan TSCA reform legislation passed both the House and Senate. However, there are significant policy differences between the House and Senate versions that will need to be addressed by a Conference Committee. On top of that, 2016 is a Presidential election year, which can make it more difficult to reach legislative agreements.
This webinar by expert speaker Lowell Randel will discuss the latest developments on TSCA reforms and how it will impact the regulation of chemicals. Gain knowledge of proposed policy changes related to TSCA and the potential impacts on your business. Also, receive insights on how to stay ahead of policy changes and prepare for new regulatory responsibilities. Plus, get tips on how to engage with policy officials to provide input on TSCA reform and regulatory implementation of changes.
