The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976 is the key US law governing chemical substances. If you manufacture, process, distribute in commerce, use or dispose of a chemical substance in the US, TSCA may apply. TSCA can also apply to substances within a chemical mixture, mixtures of chemical substances, and to mixtures and individual chemical substances within articles.
A recent amendment to the TSCA law, known as the Frank. R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (LCSA), was enacted in June 2016. One of the key reforms under the LCSA amendment is the ‘Inventory reset’. To comply companies must identify any chemicals that were manufactured, imported or processed during the ten years prior to enactment of the 2016 amendments to the EPA.
The Yordas Group, working with an established leading partner located in Boston, can help you meet these requirements.
