TSCA Reform Changes Everything Federally And Pre-Empts On Some State Regulations
Recorded On: 09/12/2016
Join Stacie Abraham for the session in regards to the Reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Passed in 1976, it is the primary chemical regulation law within the US. An overhaul has taken place and now the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority it previously lacked to enforce chemical regulations. This session will delve into the complexity of the Act by identifying state and federal authority parameters based on complicated provisions. In addition, we will outline testing authority and tiers, the process for the introduction of new chemicals, define what is considered confidential information under the Act, and more. This session qualifies as an "elective" under the Product Safety Aware Program. This sessions is more focused for suppliers.
