Guide to the Toxic Substances Control Act

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is the primary vehicle for enabling the government to review most chemicals, other than foods, drugs, cosmetics and pesticides, before they are introduced into commerce. It was overhauled in 2016 when the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act was signed into law, reforming the basic approach to chemical regulation (the first substantive change to TSCA in 40 years). This treatise addresses the modifications in the Lautenberg Act as well as EPA regulations implementing the Act’s reforms, and provides substantive guidance on how to adapt compliance programs to meet those requirements.

Guide to the Toxic Substances Control Act (formerly known as “The Toxic Substances Control Act: Reformed by the Lautenberg Act”) is written for lawyers and regulatory affairs specialists who need to understand the details of the law and implement both old and new regulations and guidances. The 2022 edition includes detailed descriptions and practice pointers for each of the programs under TSCA and TSCA reform. The past few years have brought major developments in confidential business information, user fees, mercury reporting, reporting prospective use or processing of inactive substances, alternatives to animal testing, and Department of Justice limits on the use of guidances. In addition, EPA is still in the process of issuing regulations to implement the 2016 reform of the law. The EPA is also evaluating existing chemicals and has begun the mandatory task of addressing unreasonable risks. Stakeholders have instituted legal challenges to these actions, with more inevitably to come. Coupled with regulatory relaxation during the prior administration and the promise of regulatory enhancements this administration, the Toxic Substances Control Act has been and continues to be an area of intense activity. All these developments and more are described in detail so that practitioners can navigate the new regulations and understand the areas of uncertainty. There is also in-depth coverage of state chemical regulation laws, and practical resources including model procedures for incorporating TSCA requirements into daily operations.
