Keller and Heckman is pleased to announce that our TSCA Basics Course will return as a live, in-person seminar this year and will be held on September 23rd, in Washington, DC. 

With experience dating back to the initial enactment of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in 1976, the attorneys and scientists of Keller and Heckman will provide a comprehensive program focused on the regulation of new and existing chemicals under TSCA. This year's course will provide chemical manufacturers, importers, and processors with essential, in-depth information on “core” TSCA requirements and implementation of the many changes resulting from the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (TSCA reform).

The course will explain and provide insight on compliance and management strategies for:

  • Premanufacture Notice (PMN) preparation and case management, and emerging EPA review procedures
  • Section 5(e) order/SNUR strategies for new chemicals
  • PMN exemptions and alternatives
  • EPA prioritization, risk evaluation, and risk management for existing chemicals
  • Risk management rules for PIP (3:1) and other PBTs
  • TSCA test orders, chemical data collection, reporting and recordkeeping
  • Working with Active and Inactive chemicals
  • Chemical import and export issues
  • Confidential Business Information (CBI) procedures, strategies, and issues
  • Compliance auditing, EPA inspections and enforcement, liability management
  • Current TSCA developments, litigation update, and ramifications
