I.   TSCA REFORM

The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (TSCA Reform)
President Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act into law on June 22, 2016. ILMA has prepared a detailed review of the significant features of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform law. The White Paper can be viewed here. The president's signature marks an historic moment, as it is the first overhaul of the primary chemical control law in the United States since the TSCA was enacted in 1976, and it is the first significant new environmental law since the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. President Obama noted in his remarks during the signing ceremony that the new law will grant new authorities to EPA to regulate "new" and "existing" chemicals; however, he also highlighted that the new law will also provide industry with the regulatory certainty it needs.
