TSCA Reformed: What do European companies need to know? - 7 December
About the event
This one-day forum will provide an overview of the new law and major changes to TSCA. The passage on May 24, 2016, of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act by the U.S. House of Representatives, subsequently passed by the U.S. Senate and signed into law by President Obama on June 22nd 2016, profoundly alters the regulation of industrial chemicals in the U.S. under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
All chemical stakeholders doing business in the U.S., as well as foreign entities with business interests in the U.S., will need to understand the fundamental shifts in requirements and the new concepts and approaches that are introduced by the law.
Chemical Watch is pleased to have assembled an impressive faculty of TSCA experts representing the perspectives of industry, environmental organisations, and U.S. Federal regulatory authorities, along with EU experts.
