CSPA to offer TSCA guidance June 20

Overview of Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (H.R. 2576)

WHEN
June 20, 2016, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
(with the alternative of in-person attendance for those in Washington, D.C.)
 
WHY
On June 7, 2016, the U.S. Senate approved the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (H.R. 2576) by voice vote, following the U.S. House of Representatives’ prior approval of the bill on May 24, 2016. The bill has gone to the president, who has ten days (excluding Sundays) to sign it, and he is expected to do so.
 
WHAT
Please join Dentons US LLP, co-sponsored by CSPA, by webinar or in person for an overview of the bill’s changes to the current Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), with a focus on issues of importance to processors of chemical substances and mixtures. The webinar will focus on how the new law will impact processors of consumer specialty products and their suppliers and will include the following:

  • New testing authority
  • New processing of premanufacture notices and significant new use notices
  • New prioritization, risk evaluation, and regulation of existing substances
  • New reporting of substances “active” in U.S. commerce
  • New requirements for confidential business information claims
  • New preemption of state and local laws
  • New funding for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • New provisions for “articles”

The principal presenters will be
Michael Boucher, Partner, Dentons
Amy Symonds, Managing Associate, Dentons

WHERE
Online or in person at:
Seneca Conference Room | Dentons US LLP
1900 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20005
