  4. New chemicals under new TSCA

    Chemical innovation is the lifeblood of a sustainable economy. New TSCA requires EPA to review and take certain actions as a predicate to commercialization, actions that too many are slowing chemical innovation. What these actions are and what new chemical innovators need to know about them are the subject of this presentation. We will cover:

    • The new  Section 5 New Chemical review process
    • Defining “conditions of use”
    • What is “reasonably foreseeable”  and what exactly is “not likely”?
    • Preparing the best new chemical notification—do’s and don’ts
    • The new normal—living with Consent Orders and Significant New Use Rules (SNUR)

  6. TSCA - SNURs: A strategic and practical view; including communication to your downstream user

    • With the reformed Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), came a more conservative approach to risk assessment.
    • This approach leads to more restrictions on the notified substance, mainly in the form of Significant New Use Rules (SNURS).
    • Discussing  ideas for strategic business planning in understanding and working with SNURs, practical points for the manager dealing with the SNUR and options of communicating with the downstream user.
