Friday , 5th Jun 2020

In June 2016, President Obama signed into law the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (the Lautenberg Act or LCSA) to amend the TSCA regulation, first established in 1976. The modifications to TSCA strengthened EPA’s authority to manage existing and new chemical substances in commerce. We will be entering the fourth year since the implementation of LCSA in 2020. This webinar will highlight some of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) significant accomplishments since the passing of the TSCA reform act and will summarize some of the key items that will be important in 2020. 

The webinar will include topics such as new substance notification, Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) requirements, CDR reports of 2020, TSCA’s Active/Inactive inventory (TSCA re-set), regulated chemicals under TSCA, e.g. SNURs and Consent Orders, and TSCA risk evaluation on existing chemical substances.
