EPA issues report to Congress on implementing amended TSCA provisions, President Trump issues memo and order on reducing federal regulations
from The National Law Review
In January, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its initial report to Congress on its capacity to implement certain provisions of the amended Toxic Substances Control Act. The report was directed to be provided within six months of enactment under Section 26(m)(1) of amended TSCA. In the report, EPA states that it anticipates "ramping up from 10 risk evaluations in FY2017 to 15 in FY2018, reaching 20 by the end of FY2019," which is necessary "to accomplish an ongoing pace of at least 20 EPA-initiated risk evaluations underway" by the end of calendar year (CY) 2019.
