New 3E White Paper: Your Guide to TSCA Reform

In a major overhaul of federal chemical safety laws, a historic reform of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) took effect on 22 June 2016. The TSCA reform law gives the EPA more direct tools to obtain testing information on chemical substances; eliminates certain statutory requirements that make the restriction or ban of chemicals in U.S. commerce difficult; and restructures the way existing chemicals are evaluated and regulated. The amended TSCA will have significant impacts on chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors, processors and other downstream users.

Toxic Substances Control: Understanding the Impact on Industry 
August Edition of Verisk Review - Julie Byrne and Barry McLaughlin

Controls on toxic substances in the United States are getting tougher, raising challenges to compliance and record keeping for chemical manufacturers, importers, and handlers. On 22 June 2016, U.S. President Barack Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (H.R. 2576), which modernizes the 40-year-old TSCA. As a result, businesses face a complex array of rules and regulations that carry significant penalties for noncompliance.

Europe Raises the Compliance Bar: Is Your Supply Chain Prepared?
Metropolitan Airport News - Kirsten Wallerstedt

For U.S. companies that have a stake in exporting to Europe either as a manufacturer or as a logistics company, sweeping regulatory changes in the European Union (EU) are raising complex questions for businesses and introducing new tensions along the world’s supply chains. Manufacturers and importers will soon be tasked with reporting the origin of some metals and materials used in their products. They will also be responsible for disclosing aspects of their suppliers’ human rights and environmental activities, involving detailed due diligence policies.

President Signs GMO Labeling into Law  
July 29, 2016 - James Lee

On 29 July 2016, U.S. President Barack Obama signed S. 764 into law, which creates a national labeling requirement for food products made from genetically modified organisms (GMO). The law invalidates a strict mandatory GMO labeling requirement in Vermont, which became effective on 1 July 2016. The new legislation is a compromise between a voluntary labeling law, which was proposed by the Congress in the past, and more explicit on-package disclosure requirements supported by consumer interest groups.
