In 2016 under the Obama administration, the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act) was signed into law. The Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act amended the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the law that authorizes the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate the manufacture or importation of new and existing chemicals. The goal of the changes was to help boost consumer confidence in chemical safety by allowing for tougheroversight. But the process of implementing those changes has not gone exactly according to plan. Besides, how TSCA might evolve under Biden administration remains a question.
