The Latest Updates on US Regulation for Managing Toxic Substances, TSCA Reform and 5 PBTs Restrictions
As the Biden-Harris Administration works to advance the EPA’s mission of protecting human health and the environment, the agency is committed to ensuring the safety of chemicals used.
Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the EPA was required to take expedited action on certain persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) chemicals and promulgate final risk management actions no later than the statutory deadline of December 2020. To meet that requirement, EPA released final rules to reduce exposure to five PBT chemicals, a critical step in the agency’s efforts to protect the health of Americans – including children, workers, and the environment.
These rules, which went into effect (February 5, 2021), address toxic chemicals that remain in the environment for long periods of time and build up in the body.
