Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 2PM ET, Irene Hantman and Kurt Blase will conduct a webinar for the American Chemical Society on New Requirements for Chemicals in Commerce – Chemical Regulation under TSCA Reform. Register for the webinar here.
The Lautenberg amendments to TSCA impose new reporting requirements on chemicals in commerce through Inventory Reset Reporting. Inventory Reporting is necessary to keep chemicals in commerce lawfully. These requirements also have implications for raw materials. The presentation will address these issues. It will also address how the amendments require EPA to ensure that new chemicals do not present an unreasonable risk to human health and the environment. This has significant implications for new chemicals notification – the Premanufacture Notification requirement. In addition, the webinar will discuss the reporting requirements of the Nanoscale Materials Reporting Rule. (This rule was not required by the Lautenberg amendments.)
