Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Regulations Solutions
Nearly every company involved in the chemical industry doing business in the U.S. is impacted by Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) regulations to some degree (with some exceptions among food, drug, cosmetic, nuclear and pesticides companies). Raw materials, intermediates, finished goods and some articles are all regulated by TSCA. Full lifecycle, or cradle to grave, compliance is an essential component of TSCA, as most manufacturing, importing, processing and disposal activities are TSCA regulated.
Increased TSCA requirements resulting from EPA's chemical management reform as mandated by the TSCA Reform bill signed into law June 2016 and increased enforcement will accelerate the burden on organizational EHS compliance activities. To ensure compliance with TSCA, impacted companies need to develop and execute a comprehensive and detailed plan reflective of a myriad of requirements.
