TSCA Reform Webinar Series: Hazard, Use, and Exposure Data

Event Date: 
September 20, 2011

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 #3 - Hazard, Use, and Exposure Data

This panel will explore reform of TSCA requirements and procedures for developing and reporting data on chemical hazards, use, and exposure. Topics will include: scope of EPA authority to require information and data, including on new chemicals such as nanomaterials; testing, including mutual acceptance of data and emerging methodologies; and the role of downstream users of chemicals.
