Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. is pleased to announce that Lynn L. Bergeson will join the Retail Industry Leaders Association’s (RILA) Retail Compliance Center (RCC) on June 10, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT) to present a webinar entitled “TSCA: It Is Not What You May Think.” For decades, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has been regarded as a “chemical producer” law that retailers, product manufacturers, and other “article” manufacturers could, for the most part, comfortably ignore. Not anymore. TSCA was significantly amended in 2016, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) implementation of “new TSCA” has drawn many, often unsuspecting, entities in the value chain -- including retailers -- squarely into TSCA’s broad reach. The “new normal” may not be what you want, but this webinar tells you what you need to know!
 
In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • What TSCA is and why it matters to retailers;
  • What retailers need to know about their products; and
  • What steps to take after the webinar.

This webinar is intended for large and small retailers, product stewards, sustainability and circularity professionals, and retail compliance professionals, as well as those throughout the product supply chain. Registration is open for the free webinar.
