Toxic Substance Control (TSCA)

Toxic Substance Control (TSCA)

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), makes sure that the human health and environmental effects of chemical substances are identified and adequately addressed before production or transport.

Labs engaged in research must consider if the TSCA applies to their operations.
