Read Frequently Asked Questions

The presentation will describe the recently proposed major revisions to the law (Toxic Substance Control Act, TSCA) that regulates the use of industrial chemicals the United States - the first time this has happened in the 40 years since the bill was drafted in 1976. A critical review of the recently proposed bills in the House and Senate will be provided, including an overview of the background and history of this legislative effort, an overview of the proposed changes and effects of implementation on the regulated community.

Why Should You Attend:

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) arguably is in need of its first major overhaul in 40 years to improve the current beleaguered US chemical regulatory system. As such, the development and introduction of such potential legacy legislation has a long, storied and controversial history spanning a decade. The proposals before the US Senate and the US House of Representatives to reform TSCA pose a number of significant challenges to compliance, implementation and enforcement at all levels of government and industry. Despite these existing shortcomings, the conditions are such that the current Congress and President could establish TSCA reform legislation and usher in a new and arguably needed era of chemical product safety and assessment to better take advantage of the substantial recent technical and scientific advances.

Duties assigned to employees who work in regulatory affairs are not taught in college or vocational schools. One of the best ways to learn how to be effective in regulatory affairs roles is to learn directly from those doing it. This presentation, in addition to teaching you about upcoming regulatory compliance issues, will provide helpful hints and resources for all levels of experience. Small companies or those newer to the field may benefit particularly from the knowledge imparted during the presentation.
