On June 10, 2021, the Retail Industry Leaders Association’s (RILA) Retail Compliance Center (RCC) and Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), presented “TSCA - It Is Not What You May Think.” While the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has long been regarded as a law applying to chemical producers, reforms made in 2016 have drawn many retailers, product manufacturers, and other “article” manufacturers into TSCA’s reach. Nothing illustrates this more clearly than a recent final rule under Section 6(h) limiting or prohibiting the manufacture (including import), processing, and/or distribution in commerce of five persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals, including phenol, isopropylated phosphate (3:1) (PIP (3:1)). This complimentary webinar, intended for large and small retailers, product stewards, and professionals throughout the product supply chain, covered:

  • What TSCA is and why it matters to retailers;
  • What retailers need to know about their products;
  • What the PIP (3:1) case study signals about the potential reach of TSCA; and
  • What steps to take to prepare for new regulations.

A full recording of this webinar is available now, along with slides and detailed responses to the Q&A portion of the event.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. is pleased to announce that Lynn L. Bergeson will join the Retail Industry Leaders Association’s (RILA) Retail Compliance Center (RCC) on June 10, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT) to present a webinar entitled “TSCA: It Is Not What You May Think.” For decades, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has been regarded as a “chemical producer” law that retailers, product manufacturers, and other “article” manufacturers could, for the most part, comfortably ignore. Not anymore. TSCA was significantly amended in 2016, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) implementation of “new TSCA” has drawn many, often unsuspecting, entities in the value chain -- including retailers -- squarely into TSCA’s broad reach. The “new normal” may not be what you want, but this webinar tells you what you need to know!
 
In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • What TSCA is and why it matters to retailers;
  • What retailers need to know about their products; and
  • What steps to take after the webinar.

This webinar is intended for large and small retailers, product stewards, sustainability and circularity professionals, and retail compliance professionals, as well as those throughout the product supply chain. Registration is open for the free webinar.
