Now updated to cover critical changes to TSCA as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, also know as the Lautenberg Law or LCSA.
Businesses that manufacture, import, process, distribute, or dispose of a regulated chemical substance or chemical mixture must comply with the US EPA's Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) rules. Compliance managers must know what chemicals are regulated, how chemicals must be managed, and how to comply with detailed reporting and recordkeeping requirements.
Through this comprehensive online course, you'll learn the detailed management rules for handling, storing, processing, and producing chemical substances, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). You’ll also learn how the TSCA chemical reporting system works, who must report, and what information is required under each program.
