Overview

The growing concern in the United States about the safety of chemicals in our environment makes the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) a timely topic. TSCA is the primary vehicle for enabling the government to review most chemicals, other than foods, drugs, cosmetics and pesticides, before they are introduced into commerce. Last year's dramatic recall of children's toys tainted with lead has increased the calls for thorough information about the chemicals in our environment. In addition, the lightening speed of nanotechnology development threatens to leave regulators with very few tools to address the environmental and toxicological effects of nanomaterials. This book is a unique resource for lawyers and regulatory affairs specialists who need to understand the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), including the surrounding law, regulations and guidances. This volume includes a CD-ROM containing a broad array of resource materials, references to other supporting source materials, and procedures to implement an integrated TSCA compliance plan.
