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.

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

These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

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!
