Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
Modernizing the Federal Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) will go a long way toward enhancing the public’s confidence in responsible management and regulation of chemicals. A key ACI goal in TSCA modernization is to ensure members’ ability to innovate and formulate. ACI is committed to targeted risk-management measures that focus priorities and are practical, timely, transparent and responsive to the needs of consumers and other stakeholders. The resulting program should encourage innovation and acknowledge the benefits our products provide to enhance health and the quality of life.
Over the years ACI has also been active in supporting effort to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of EPA products under its current TSCA authority through dialogue and submission of comments.
