What is the Toxic Substance Control Act?

The Toxic Substance Control Act (“TSCA”) of 1976 provides the EPA with the authority to require reporting, record-keeping and testing requirements, and restrictions relating to chemical substances and/or mixtures.  The TSCA complements other federal environmental statutes that regulate pollution by controlling chemical products prior to entering the environment.  The core of the TSCA is informational: chemical manufacturers must provide EPA with information on the chemicals they produce.
