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.
