Lautenberg Act Finally Signed by President Obama: a Milestone in TSCA Modernization

On June 22, 2016, President Obama signed the historic Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which amends the 40-year-old Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), the primary chemicals management law in the Unites States of America.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the new law, which received bipartisan support in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, includes much needed improvements such as:

  • Mandatory requirement for EPA to evaluate existing chemicals with clear and enforceable deadlines;
  • New risk-based safety standard;
  • Increased public transparency for chemical information; and
  • Consistent source of funding for EPA to carry out the responsibilities under the new law.

It is the first?overhaul to the nation's chemical laws in nearly 40 years, a milestone in the history of environmental legislation. Companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances in the U.S. shall pay attention to the new amendments and make compliance strategies accordingly so as to?better navigate the regulatory maze in the U.S.
