It is now more than five years since TSCA was amended, following the adoption of the Frank R Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act in 2016. Since then, the US EPA has developed numerous chemicals management policies and taken steps to regulate substances of concern, with a significant impact on industry.

TSCA developments in the coming years depend on the US EPA’s agenda under the Biden administration and decisions in pivotal legal challenges to the law. Updated policy positions on the new and existing chemicals programmes have reignited debates on the scope of TSCA, giving rise to uncertainty surrounding risk evaluations, premarket chemical reviews, user fees, confidentiality and more.

Chemical Watch is committed to helping you understand changing TSCA regulation and what it means for your products and your business. Our regular news coverage, in-depth features, conferences, training and expert assistance from our analyst team can help you stay up to date and keep your compliance efforts on track.
