News of the month

Every month, we bring together some of our top news stories from the last four weeks to highlight the biggest developments affecting product safety professionals. Take a look at this month’s top stories below.

In August, the US EPA released plans to develop a ‘tiered’ data reporting scheme under TSCA, which has raised concerns around pre-prioritisation. We also reported on industry reaction to the agency’s proposed PFAS reporting rule. In Europe, we spoke to Cefic and NGO Cruelty Free Europe after they questioned the potential impact of unreliable animal testing on hazard data under REACH.
