TSCA Compliance: Secure Your U.S. Market Access

Compliance with TSCA is necessary for entry and continued access to the U.S. market. In effect since 1976, TSCA was updated in 2021, with the goal of adding 10 substances annually for the foreseeable future — and there more than 50 in the backlog queue.

Is your company ready to meet these new requirements?

The Steep Costs of TSCA Non-Compliance

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) manages TSCA to evaluate the health and environmental risks associated with new and existing chemicals and substances, reducing hazardous exposures and environmental pollution.

Challenges for businesses include:

  • Financial Penalties: The EPA is ramping up its enforcement of TSCA rules, and failure to comply could mean losing market access, hefty fines — up to $50,000 USD per day, per infraction — or even imprisonment.
  • Supply Chain Delays: Delays in material sourcing due to supply chain disruptions could create long-lasting impacts on your business.
  • Reputation: Bad PR around substances in your products could impact your bottom line for years to come.
  • Change in Focus: In the event of a compliance challenge, staff will spend time resolving the issue instead of focusing on the jobs they were hired to do
