Demanding health-protective implementation of TSCA

EDF comments and blogs on 10 key aspects of TSCA implementation

On June 22, 2016, President Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which substantially amended the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to create a stronger and more effective chemical safety system in the United States.

In the face of a new anti-environmental Administration and industry pressure to weaken TSCA implementation, EDF is working hard to demand that EPA effectively implements the strengthened TSCA and fulfills its duties to protect the American people from harmful chemicals. Below is a repository of the many comments EDF has submitted to EPA and our blog posts on 10 key components of TSCA implementation:
