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.
