Regulatory Update: EPA Publishes Update on LCSA Framework Rules

Last year congress amended the 40 year old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The new law, known as the Frank R Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21stCentury Act (LCSA), placed new responsibility on the EPA to determine which chemicals are currently being manufactured, imported, and actively used in U.S. commerce during the last 10 years. There are currently about 85,000 chemicals on the TSCA Inventory, and the EPA will now accept voluntary electronic reporting notifications for substances that were used during the 10 year period in order to designate them as “active” or “inactive.” You may be affected by this action if you domestically manufactured, imported, or processed a chemical substance listed on the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory for nonexempt commercial purpose during the 10-year time period ending on June 21, 2016.
