It’s been almost five years since the Frank R Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act overhauled TSCA in the US. Some have called the intervening years “transformational”, and most would agree that the changes have had a significant impact on industry.

What happens under TSCA in the coming years will depend, at least to some extent, on the US EPA’s agenda under the new Biden administration. But whatever the outcome, we can expect continued debates surrounding risk evaluations, new chemical reviews, TSCA fees and more.

Chemical Watch is committed to helping our community understand both the basics and intricacies of TSCA through our regular news coverage, in-depth features, conferences, training and expert assistance from our analyst team. We can also help you stay up to date with state-level developments across the US.

Recent coverage of TSCA

25 March 2021

The US EPA has announced plans to increase its reliance on TSCA orders to address potential risks posed by new substances, with a specific focus on ensuring protection for workers.

The US EPA may supplement certain TSCA risk evaluations finalised under the previous administration and reverse policy decisions that excluded certain uses and exposure pathways from the scope of its existing chemical reviews..

Documents released through a public records request have raised fresh questions on the extent to which industry should have a say in how new chemicals are regulated under TSCA before they enter the marketplace.

17 March 2021

The US EPA has delayed enforcement of certain prohibitions due to take effect today on the flame retardant PIP (3:1), and is offering the public another opportunity to weigh in on TSCA risk management rules for it and four other persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) substances.

Chemicals regulation is front and centre for the Biden-Harris administration thanks to its relevance to the president’s top priorities of transparency, science and environmental justice, say Alexandra Dapolito Dunn, Allison Watkins Mallick, Jeff Oliver and Jeff Wood of Baker Botts LLP.

More focus on policy equity could see the US EPA take tougher steps to address the cumulative impacts and chemical exposures vulnerable populations face. Terry Hyland reports.
