Background

On June 22, 2016, the U.S. president Obama signed into law the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (the “Lautenberg Act”). It’s the first time the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has been substantively amended in the past 40 years since its enactment. The amended TSCA gives EPA the authority to conduct risk evaluation and risk management process to ensure safe use of chemical substances in commerce.

This webinar will provide an overview of TSCA and possible impacts brought by the new law.

On June 22, 2016, President Obama signed the historic Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which amends the 40-year-old Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), the primary chemicals management law in the Unites States of America.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the new law, which received bipartisan support in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, includes much needed improvements such as:

  • Mandatory requirement for EPA to evaluate existing chemicals with clear and enforceable deadlines;
  • New risk-based safety standard;
  • Increased public transparency for chemical information; and
  • Consistent source of funding for EPA to carry out the responsibilities under the new law.

It is the first overhaul to the nation's chemical laws in nearly 40 years, a milestone in the history of environmental legislation. Companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances in the U.S. shall pay attention to the new amendments and make compliance strategies accordingly so as to better navigate the regulatory maze in the U.S.

REACH24H Consulting Group has a subsidiary company in the United State with Mr. Robert Kiefer as the general manager and is always readily prepared to assist you in TSCA compliance. For any questions or doubts, please feel free to contact us at info@reach24h.com.

Recently, some Chinese manufacturers exporting products to the United States turned to REACH24H for help, troubled by the failure of customs clearance without a TSCA certification statement. To address such pressing issues, REACH24H experts provided tailored consulting services to these companies and helped them clear the customs in a timely manner.

Under Section 13 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), chemical substances, mixtures, or articles not in compliance with TSCA, or whose importation is not in compliance with TSCA, must be denied entry into the customs territory of the United States. There are three different situations concerning TSCA certification statement.

A positive certification statement is required for chemical substances subject to TSCA. The importer must certify by a statement on the entry document or invoice that any shipment of a chemical substance subject to TSCA, complies with TSCA, and that it is not offered for entry in violation of TSCA or rules or orders under TSCA.

A negative certification is required for the following, which are not subject to TSCA:

  • Any pesticide
  • Any food, food additive, drug, cosmetic or device
  • Source material, special nuclear material, or by-product material
  • Firearms and ammunitions

No certification is required for the following:

  • Chemicals that are a part of articles
  • Tobacco or any tobacco product

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) may detain or refuse entry of shipments if certification is not made or if the shipment is believed not to be in compliance with TSCA.

REACH24H suggests that companies exporting goods to the United States cooperate with U.S. importers to provide a positive or negative certification statement if necessary. TSCA compliance is always a prerequisite for the trade of chemicals to the U.S. Please check if your shipment is subject to and complies with TSCA. If so, a positive certification statement is truly the passport that facilitates your entry into the U.S. market.

2011 is a reporting year pursuant to the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule. Pursuant to IUR, companies (other than "small" manufacturers) that manufacture (including import) chemicals for commercial purposes (including byproduct chemicals that are not disposed of as waste) must periodically report manufacturing information to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For the 2011 reporting period, EPA is proposing many changes that may trigger additional reporting for many companies.

The US Environmental Working Group (EWG) has analysed data obtained from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and published a study implying that the information of two-thirds of all chemicals introduced to the market in the last 27 years has been claimed to be confidential business information (CBI) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
