Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. Launches to Provide News and Analysis on TSCA Reform Implementation and Related Legal and Policy Developments

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) announced today the launch of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Blog (TSCAblog™) to track and report regulatory, scientific, legal, and policy developments under the “new TSCA.” On June 22, 2016, President Obama signed into law the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (Lautenberg), which makes important changes to TSCA and is the first revision of U.S. domestic chemical management law in 40 years. Stakeholders will need immediately to understand what the “new TSCA” means for their industrial operations and strategically adjust their global operations to the new law. The TSCAblog is available at

Through the TSCAblog, these professionals will offer readers timely updates, expert insight, and clear analysis on the issues and developments critical to the success of companies in the global chemical and chemical products market as regulators and the regulated community work through the tsunami of changes wrought by Lautenberg.
