Since 1976, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has shaped federal chemical control policy, establishing a framework for testing, reporting and regulating risks associated with chemical substances used in industrial, commercial and consumer applications and products.
Today, a growing number of stakeholders, representing public sector, private sector, academia, and nongovernmental organizations are calling for Congress to reform TSCA to reflect the changing scientific, health, technological, legal and international landscape shaping environmental, health and trade policy.
Working through its Pesticide, Chemical Regulation, and Right to Know (PCRRTK) Committee, Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) has developed a variety of resources for TSCA stakeholders interested in participating in the TSCA reform debate.
