    Program Overview:

    Join us for what is sure to be a lively discussion with a group of experts and advocates during which we will review EPA’s progress in implementing the 2016 amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The effect that the change in Administrations may have and the oversight role of the new Congress will be covered by an expert panel. The panel also will discuss the regulatory actions EPA has taken, those the Agency is required to still take during 2017, and how EPA’s efforts reflect priorities and deadlines under the amended statute. The topics reviewed will include recent regulatory proposals issued pursuant to the amended Section 6(a) of TSCA. The status of the proposed prioritization and risk evaluation rules, the Inventory rule involving “active” and “inactive” designations, and the scope of risk evaluations EPA will undertake on the first 10 existing chemicals selected for review under the amended statute also will be evaluated for their legal and policy implications.
