WEBINAR TODAY: The New Toxic Substances Control Act - Dealing with the Present and Looking to the Future

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Register Here for Today's Webinar

Jul 06, 2016 2:00 PM EDT 

The Toxic Substance Control Act has received a great deal of attention recently, with Congress passing the first major revision to the Act in 40 years early this summer. This summer is also important for compliance with TSCA’s existing Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) program, which requires companies that manufacture or import certain chemicals in excess of the applicable threshold to submit reports to EPA every four years. Reporting for the period from 2012-2016 is due by September 30, 2016. This Webinar will provide an overview of the CDR program with an emphasis on key factors for IMA members to consider in determining whether or not they are required to report. EPA has lowered the applicable thresholds for reporting so companies cannot simply assume they are not required to report this year because they haven’t reported in the past. The webinar will then provide an overview of the amendments to TSCA recently passed by Congress, focus on key aspects of the amendments that may impact IMA members, and highlight the opportunities to participate and shape EPA’s implementation of the amendments in the near future.

Presented by: Ben Machlis and Steven Barringer (Holland and Hart LLP)

Cost: $39/person for IMA members $69/person for non-members

* This webinar will be recorded and distributed along with all .PPTs to all registrants following the webinar
