A year ago, the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (LCSA) was passed into law to amend and overhaul the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The amendments have authorized the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reevaluate its existing chemical substances inventory on a specific timeframe through the proposed Inventory Rule. The Inventory Rule requires manufacturers and importers to report and submit electronically to the EPA the chemicals manufactured and processed in the past 10 years. This is to identify "active" or "inactive" chemicals and for the EPA to strengthen their focus on the regulatory scrutiny of existing chemicals.
In this live webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders, professionals and practitioners brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present to the audience an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as the new amendments in TSCA’s Inventory Rule. Speakers will go beyond the basics and provide the best strategies and practical tips to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.
Key topics include:
- The Amended Inventory Rule: An Overview
- Scope, Limitations and Opportunities
- Regulatory Exemptions and Requirements
- Potential Implications
- Trends, Developments and Recent Issues
