Several key issues have emerged as pivotal in ongoing efforts to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Progress on these complex issues is central to the success of TSCA reform. To foster further discussion of these critical topics, ELI is convening a series of issue-specific lunchtime teleconferences during the summer and fall of 2011 that will provide a forum for focused dialogue among key players.

Session#1 - Key Perspectives on TSCA Reform (June 30, 2011)
The first panel of the series will set the stage for the following issue-specific panels by examining the status of TSCA reform in the larger context of EPA’s recent administrative initiatives, state chemicals laws, technological innovations and international chemicals programs such as the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH). Panelists will also discuss the status of legislative reform efforts.

Speakers:
Leslie Carothers, President, Environmental Law Institute (moderator)
Connie Deford, Director - Global Regulatory Affairs, The Dow Chemical Company
J. Clarence (Terry) Davies, Senior Fellow, Resources for the Future
Mark A. Greenwood, Ropes & Gray LLP
Andy Igrejas, National Campaign Director, Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families

Session #2: The Standard of Safety.
Session #3: Hazard, Use and Exposure Data.
Session #4: Chemical Prioritization.
