Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act

Duration: 60 Minutes
This webinar addresses the recently updated 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Its new name is chemical safety in the 21st Century. The updated act is titled, "Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act." The act was named in honor of Senator Lautenberg because he was an ardent proponent of modifications to TSCA during his lifetime. The act amends and "Modernizes" the original act. Reforming TSCA provides broad protection of human health and the environment, it improves availability of information about chemicals, and it clarifies that nothing in the bill is intended to affect common law rights and remedies.

Topic Background
Prior to 1976 there were no specific requirements for a company to test risks from exposure to products, by-products raw materials and wastes associated with the making of a chemical product. Therefore, a person working on said products and their by-products, raw materials and wastes were not informed as to the risks associated with working with said chemicals. The 1976 TSCA changed all of that requiring such things as Pre-Manufacturing Notification (PMN) to be filed for EPA review before any product could be manufactured. TSCA, which was signed into law the same day that Superfund was also signed into law, has been in place for some 40 years. This update titled, "Frank R Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act" is long overdue.
