The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976 provides EPA with authority to require reporting, record-keeping and testing requirements, and restrictions relating to chemical substances and/or mixtures. The TSCA Deskbook is your one-stop resource for understanding and managing these complex chemical regulation issues. This second edition of the Deskbook updates the first by outlining the rules and regulations passed since its printing in 2007. It is an essential resource for attorneys and environmental managers working in the ever-changing area of chemical legislation that highlights potential pitfalls and demystifies complex regulatory language.The TSCA Deskbook begins with a detailed analysis by leading attorney practitioners of the Act. This step-by-step analysis of the statute integrates statutory and regulatory provisions, Federal Register preambles, and agency memoranda and guidance to provide the clearest, most comprehensive guide available to the regulatory programs governing chemicals. The analysis reviews the origins of the Act, regulatory requirements, definitional issues, and civil and criminal enforcement. Part two of the Deskbook provides TSCA in full, up-to-date text. And part three contains valuable agency memoranda, guidance, and materials to aid the user in the interpretation of the statute.
