- Webinar : TSCA Reform: The Current State of Play, (September 24, 2015) featuring Lynn L. Bergeson and hosted by Compliance & Risks, will bring you up to date on the very latest developments in the U.S. Congress and key regulatory developments and initiatives should TSCA reform fail to materialize. If Congress is unable to enact new TSCA measures, many question whether the law will be revised before the Presidential elections in 2016, which means TSCA reform would not occur until 2017 or later.
