TSCA Overhaul Bill Approved in Senate Committee

Posted on 4/30/2015 by Roger Marks

On Tuesday, April 28, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved a bill that would overhaul US EPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for chemical safety, recordkeeping, and reporting.

New proposals in the approved TSCA reform bill include:

  • Create uniform Federal standards for chemicals restricted by US EPA
  • Cost cannot factor into EPA’s chemical safety determinations
  • Mandated safety reviews for new and existing chemicals
  • Adjusting the deadline for EPA to evaluate existing chemicals
  • New requirements for confidential business information claims
  • Restrictions for new chemicals entering the marketplace
  • Officially define “vulnerable populations”

Bill sponsor David Vitter of Louisiana had the following to say regarding the TSCA reform effort:

"TSCA reform is too important for consumers and job-creating businesses to not follow through, especially when you consider the fact that chemicals are used to produce 96 percent of all manufactured goods consumers rely on every day.”
Now that it’s been approved by the committee, the TSCA overhaul bill will face consideration on the full Senate floor.

Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!

Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.

Gregory Thompson

The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.

The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.

I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
