EPA Final Rules
In January of 2021, the EPA issued five final rules designed to reduce exposure to specific persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals. Risk evaluations of these chemicals conducted by the EPA may lead to prohibitory actions regarding their manufacture, import, processing, and distribution due to their moderate-to-high risk to human health and the environment. TSCA is enforced by the EPA and non-compliance may result in steep penalties (up to $50,000 per violation per day) or jail time.
