What to Expect in Chemicals Policy and Regulation in 2023 — A Conversation with Richard E. Engler, Ph.D.
This week, Dr. Richard E. Engler, Director of Chemistry for B&C and The Acta Group (Acta®), our consulting affiliate, returned to the studio to discuss what to expect in Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) regulation in the New Year. While we cannot predict with precision, we know 2023 will be a consequential year for several reasons: the first final risk management rule will be issued, the final per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) reporting rule will be issued, and the final Confidential Business Information rule will be issued — and this is the first quarter of the year!
In addition to these new and significant final rules, we know the new Republican-led House is expected to schedule oversight hearings on a variety of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) topics, including TSCA implementation. Litigation is also likely to darken our collective doorways in 2023, so we discuss what issues are likely to be litigated and who might bring the lawsuits.
