Meeting your scientific and regulatory requirements under TSCA

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.

Upcoming Deadlines

  • February 2018 - Retrospective Reporting for Importers and Manufacturers
  • October 2018 - Retrospective Reporting for Processors
  • September 2020 - Submission of information for TSCA Chemical Data Reporting

The Yordas Group, working with an established leading partner located in Boston, can help you meet these requirements.

Our TSCA support services can help you determine what you need to do to ensure compliance with TSCA and associated legislation. We can create a detailed report on your chemical substances with focus on a number of topics such as the LCSA amendment, importing to the US, new chemical substance requirements and more.

How can we help?

We can support you with:

  • Assess your US chemicals inventory and identify which duties apply
  • Perform a literature search and data gap analysis
  • Prepare for the TSCA Inventory Reset
  • Prepare the data set required for Pre-manufacture notices (PMN), Section 5 significant new use notifications (SNUNs) and Chemical Data Reporting (CDR)
  • Liaise with the US authorities as appropriate
  • Prepare SDS/PSIS and labels according to the US GHS standard
