Essential Information on the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) and a REACH-like Future for Formulators and Emerging Technologies

Recorded: May 13, 2010
Instructors: Martha Marrapese, Esq., Partner, Keller & Heckman: Steve Sides, Vice President, Science, Technology and Environmental Policy, ACA
Media Format: Windows Media Video (WMV)

Course Description
Formulating paint and coatings products has always required a certain understanding of regulations that control the use of critical chemicals used as raw materials. While many formulators and regulatory professionals in the industry are familiar with the need for controlling volatile organic compounds (VOC) as a necessary condition of sale in certain areas of the country, less familiar are required controls on toxic substances under the regulatory system established by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). A 33 year old statute, TSCA has recently been proposed for extensive revisions by key legislators seeking to “modernize” the nation’s approach to chemicals management.
This VLC will provide an overview of TSCA requirements critical to paint formulators and coatings industry regulatory specialists and examine new US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposals for undertaking “chemical action plans” aimed at reducing risk from certain chemicals used by the industry. We will explore TSCA’s likely impact on emerging nanomaterial technologies and provide a perspective on the legislative proposals introduced by Congress on April 15, 2010 and how they compare to European and Canadian regulatory programs for existing chemicals.

Course Instructors:
Martha Marrapese, Esq, partner at Keller and Heckman in Washington, DC has been frequent contributor to ACA VLC's focusing on chemical control requirements, including REACH compliance, TSCA regulatory overview, and related topics.

Steve Sides, Vice President for Science, Technology and Environmental Affairs has directed the association’s efforts to address emerging chemicals management regulations, working in concert with industry experts.

Together, these instructors provide a balanced perspective based on practical experience and recognized compliance and advocacy experience.
