The passage on May 24, 2016, of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act by the U.S. House of Representatives, widely expected to pass the U.S. Senate and be signed into law by President Obama within a matter of days, profoundly alters the regulation of industrial chemicals in the U.S. under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). All chemical stakeholders doing business in the U.S., as well as foreign entities with business interests in the U.S., will need to understand the fundamental shifts in requirements, and the new concepts and approaches that are introduced by the law.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) has collaborated with Chemical Watch in assembling an impressive faculty of TSCA experts representing the perspectives of industry, environmental organizations, and U.S. Federal and State regulatory authorities to present a series of complimentary webinars titled "'The New TSCA' - What You Need to Know."

The first webinar will provide an overview of the new law and major changes to TSCA. Later webinars will provide a deeper dive into how and when TSCA programs will change and adapt to "New TSCA."

Additional webinars in this TSCA series:

Webinar 2: Impacts on new and existing chemicals programs (sections 4, 5 and 6)
Webinar 3: Information and reporting (sections 8 and 14)
Webinar 4: Other provisions -- PBTs, Preemption, Green/Sustainable Chemistry

Dates and registration links for the webinars above will be circulated in the coming weeks.
