Chemicals Management Just Got More Interesting...
The Senate passed H.R. 2576 on June 7, 2016. This bill makes important changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The bill was signed by President Obama on June 22, 2016 and is effective immediately. The new law will result in fundamental shifts in the requirements under TSCA pertinent to manufacturers of personal care products, while introducing important new concepts and approaches to domestic chemical management.

The body of changes to TSCA, including the careful balancing of competing needs and interests as well as the assiduous drafting, yield a revised TSCA that has been greatly strengthened in a way that addresses virtually all of the deficiencies and problems that have plagued TSCA over the years. You'll want to know how the new law impacts chemical manufacturers, and, in particular, downstream users of chemicals. This timely webinar will address pertinent questions such as how, and by when, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will implement the new law, and how stakeholders can be expected to participate in these opportunities.
GMA as well as Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. will break down the changes to TSCA into an easy-to-understand digest while offering unique insight on the implications for your operation.
At the conclusion of the seminar, participants will understand:
- What the changes will be and how EPA plans to implement those changes
- How the changes will impact EPA's approach to risk assessment and chemical prioritization
- Understand the legal challenges the private sector can be expected to encounter under the new law and what a company can do to prepare
- Learn how GMA is engaged in the issue and what GMA can do to assist you in preparing for the changes ahead
