Event Details


This Administration has had a frenzy releasing several proposed rules that, for the first time, show how it plans to regulate chemicals under TSCA that are found to “present an unreasonable risk.” EPA has released a number of proposals for chemicals (to be finalized in 2024) that are directly used in the adhesive and sealants industry. EPA takes a unique approach to managing risks of chemicals, defaulting to stringent bans on uses or otherwise imposing rigorous workplace requirements and existing chemical exposure limits that are orders of magnitude below existing occupational exposure limits. EPA’s approach to risk management has raised serious questions about the fundamental intent of TSCA. Members will learn about actions EPA has already taken, policies it is implementing and seeks to change, and what they can expect in the next few years from EPA. And, members will learn about opportunities to weigh in on EPA’s risk management approach. 


  1. TSCA Introduction
  2. Risk evaluation and risk management process and requirements
  3. Recent policy changes announced by EPA in 2021
  4. EPA’s implementation to date of its approach for risk management (methylene chloride, TCE, PCE, NMP, CTC) 
  5. Implications of future of chemical risk management under TSCA 

Who Should Attend:

This webinar is highly applicable to professionals in R&D, manufacturing and Sales/marketing from all the industries including B&C, assembly, packaging and transportation.
