The upcoming Regulatory Workshop will be held Wednesday, August 14, 2019 in Louisville, KY prior to ChemEdge.
If your company imports, stores, repackages, processes, uses, or disposes of chemicals, you are subject to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). To ensure your company fully understands the TSCA regulations and their requirements for your operations as well as the impact recent changes to the law may have on your company, be sure to attend NACD's in-depth Pre-Con Regulatory (TSCA) Workshop just before the start of ChemEdge 2019.
Sessions in the workshop will include:
Kathleen M. Roberts of B&C® Consortia Management, L.L.C. (BCCM), an Affiliate of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., will present the workshop. Ms. Roberts is a recognized expert on TSCA with over 25 years’ experience in advocacy, compliance, and communication activities with industry and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staff. She has presented several TSCA webinars and sessions for NACD and has worked with many NACD members to resolve TSCA questions and issues.

Welcome and Opening Remarks
TSCA Inventory – Cornerstone to TSCA Compliance
A chemical’s status on the TSCA Inventory dictates whether it can be manufactured, imported, or used in the U.S. This session will review the exclusions and exemptions for inventory listing, as well as provide an update on the new active and inactive designations being implemented under the amended TSCA. As part of this session, we will also conduct a brief review on the new chemical notification process and EPA’s review.
TSCA Framework – How the Sections Fit Together
This session will include an elementary review of the key sections of TSCA, including important terms and definitions, and how the sections fit together in an overall TSCA framework.
Amended TSCA Implementation
We will quickly review the major changes seen in the amended TSCA and then conduct a deep dive into the status of implementation of those changes, with a focus on EPA activities associated with the assessment and regulations of existing chemicals under Section 6, and further information about Section 5 new chemical reviews, the amended small business definition, and active inventory notifications.
Industry Perspective on TSCA and Implementation
This session will highlight the new aspects of amended TSCA and provide some reflection and recommendations regarding how to comply with the changes efficiently. Learn practical tips as Mr. Simons shares his experiences implementing and maintaining TSCA compliance at his company. This session will focus on explaining amended TSCA in layman’s terms from an operational perspective.
What’s Coming Up Next?
This session will highlight upcoming events and activities anticipated within the next several months, with a focus on the implementation of industry fees, the 2020 Chemical Data Reporting, and EPA Confidential Business Information Review.
The training session will close out with an overview of critical TSCA requirements and how to implement the learnings from the TSCA training to conduct a mock EPA TSCA audit within your facility as an exercise to ensure regulatory compliance is being properly addressed.
