Committee Working to Simplify TSCA Chemical Reporting

Posted on 8/25/2017 by Roger Marks

TSCA-chemicals-2.jpgAn advisory committee convened by Congress to help US EPA simplify chemical data reporting requirements under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has announced four main goals in advance of its September meeting.

The Negotiated Rulemaking Committee: Chemical Data Reporting Requirements for Inorganic Byproducts—comprised of representatives from glass, metal, and electronics manufacturers; chemical recyclers; US EPA; and environmental health groups—is working to make recommendations that will clarify, simplify, and limit the chemical reporting burden on affected US businesses.

This committee is required by statute under the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (“The Lautenberg Law”), passed in 2016 to overhaul the TSCA chemical reporting and management requirements.

What is TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR)?

Under TSCA Section 8(a), manufacturers and chemical importers must submit data to US EPA regarding the types and amounts of certain hazardous chemicals produced or imported.
EPA has authority under TSCA to restrict or prohibit the manufacture, import, or use of chemical substances deemed to pose an undue risk to human health or the environment.

I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

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!
