TSCA Framework Rules Offer Manufacturers Regulatory Clarity

(National Law Review) On the one year anniversary of major amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued three new “framework” rules on how it plans to prioritize and evaluate risks from new chemicals or new uses of chemicals — offering clearer guidance to manufacturers on how chemicals will be evaluated and regulated.

Here is a brief breakdown of the three rules:

  1. The prioritization rule sets out the first step the EPA will take — determining whether a chemical should be designated as a high priority (e.g., requiring additional study) or low priority, for which immediate study is not required.

  2. The risk evaluation rule outlines how EPA will decide whether a chemical presents an “unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment.”

  3. The final inventory notification rule requires industry businesses to electronically report chemicals that were manufactured or processed in the United States in the last ten years, so that EPA can focus regulatory decisions on those chemicals that remain active in commerce. Risk evaluations are required for all active chemicals, so inactive ones may be eliminated from the time-consuming risk evaluation process. The TSCA Inventory will be appropriately updated.
