EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) is holding a public meeting on Monday, May 1, 2017 to discuss regulatory reform opportunities involving regulations governing chemical safety activities under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) rules. Specifically, we are soliciting input from stakeholders to help identify those regulations that that might be appropriate for repeal, replacement or modification per Executive Order 13777 on Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda.
We are soliciting comments on the following questions:
Are there regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification to reduce economic or other burdens on the regulated community, including small businesses or state and local government entities?
Are there opportunities for EPA to streamline or consolidate reporting and recordkeeping requirements to reduce burden?
Are there opportunities for EPA to improve regulatory effectiveness through adopting or encouraging innovations that reduce burden while facilitating environmental protection?
Are there specific provisions within regulations that have achieved their original objective and are no longer necessary?
This meeting will be on rules promulgated to implement TSCA Subchapters I, II and VI, as well as the EPCRA Subchapter II §11023, and will be held on May 1, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Who should attend:
Entities significantly affected by TSCA or TRI regulations should attend this event. This may include state, local, and tribal governments, small businesses, consumers, non-governmental organizations, and trade associations.
You may register online (preferred) or in person. Advance registration for this event will close on April 27th, 2017. On-site registration will be permitted, but seating and speaking priority will be given to those who pre-register by the deadline.
For registrants who would like to attend in person: On-site registration will be available. However, seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to pre-registrants, until room capacity is reached. The Agency anticipates that approximately 150 people will be able to attend the meeting in person.
