What is TSCA?
In order to ensure that laws and regulations are followed during the manufacture (including import), processing, distribution in commerce, use, or disposal of chemical substances, EPA collaborates with its federal, state, and tribal regulatory partners. The Toxic Substances Control Act is the primary specific law that regulates chemical substances (TSCA).
TSCA addresses the production, importation, use, and disposal of specific chemicals including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), asbestos, radon and lead-based paint.
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Compliance Monitoring
The Toxic Substances Control Act Compliance Monitoring Plan for EPA gives direction to EPA and approved states for the administration and implementation of the Agency’s national compliance programme for TSCA.
According to TSCA, EPA monitors compliance with regulations at regulated operations (facilities, activities, and entities) in the following key program areas :
- New and Existing Chemicals Program
- Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)
- Title II Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) Program (Asbestos in Schools Program)
- Lead-based Paint Program
Once the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act was passed in 2016, it has been more than five years since TSCA was modified. Since then, with a substantial impact on industry, the US EPA has created various chemicals management rules and taken actions to regulate substances of concern
