Analyzing the EPA’s Proposal to List PFAS Chemicals as Hazardous Substances, January 30, 2023, via webinar

The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) presents "Analyzing the EPA’s Proposal to List PFAS Chemicals as Hazardous Substances."

Articles Under TSCA, December 14, 2022, 12:00 p.m. EST, via webinar

When the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was enacted in 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) focused its attention on chemical substances and chemical mixtures, while largely exempting the regulation of chemicals in “articles,” generally meaning finished products or manufactured goods. EPA’s more recent announcement of its intent to regulate chemicals in articles to a much greater extent has caught many in the regulated industries off guard and reflects a significant shift in U.S. chemical regulation policy. This change in policy affects all commercial entities that deal with a physical product, as they must now become familiar with the law, its requirements, and the chemical makeup of their finished goods. During this webinar, Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Eve Gartner, and Lynn L. Bergeson discuss the policy changes that led to the regulation of articles, EPA’s authority to regulate these articles, and what companies need to know to stay in compliance. Watch now.

August 2022

NACD Pre-Conference Regulatory Workshop, August 17, 2022, Indianapolis, IN

NACD and Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Director of Chemistry, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) offered a special pre-ChemEdge workshop, "Situational Regulatory Awareness – What to Do When a Single Chemical Product Is Subject to Three Major Regulations – TSCA, FIFRA, and FFDCA." Many chemicals regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) also fall under the Federal Insecticide, Rodenticide, and Fungicide Act (FIFRA) and/or the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). The overlap causes confusion and can lead to severe penalties if not handled properly. This interactive workshop used case studies patterned on real-world events to illustrate how different commercial activities involving chemicals can trigger all three regulations.

TSCA New Approach Methodologies, August 3, 2022, 12:00 p.m. EDT, via webinar

Cox, M.S., and Kristie Sullivan, MPH. The 2016 amendments to TSCA require EPA “to reduce and replace” vertebrate animals to the extent practicable, scientifically justified, and consistent with TSCA policies. EPA is also required to “develop a strategic plan to promote the development and implementation of alternative test methods and strategies to reduce, refine, or replace vertebrate animal testing and provide information of equivalent or better scientific quality and relevance for assessing risks of injury to health or the environment of chemical substances or mixtures.” Watch now
