TSCA Reform Passes US House 403-12

Posted on 5/26/2016 by Roger Marks

The US House of Representatives approved legislation this week to overhaul the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) chemical management, reporting, and recordkeeping regulations. The nearly unanimous decision to pass TSCA reform in the House (the Bill passed 403 to 12) comes after lawmakers agreed on key points of the legislation earlier this month. The Senate is expected to follow suit and pass the bill as well.

The bill gaining traction in both houses of Congress is a combination of two bills previously passed to reform TSCA—the Senate’s Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (S. 697) and the House of Representative’s TSCA Modernization Act of 2015 (H.R. 2576).

TSCA chemical regulation reform passes US House of Reps

If and when the Senate passes the TSCA overhaul bill, it will move to the President’s desk for a final signature. Watch this space for further updates, including how TSCA reform will affect the way your business manages chemicals on site and submits chemical inventory reports to US EPA.
