Webinar on TSCA Reform and its Impact on the Apparel and Footwear Industry (for AAFA members only)

August 25, 2016 • Webinar

Starts: 2:00 PM (Eastern)
Ends: 3:00 PM (Eastern)

On June 22, 2016, President Barack Obama signed into law the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. The AAFA-supported legislation, an update of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), establishes a new national chemical management standard that significantly alters how chemicals are regulated in the U.S.

This webinar will address the impact of TSCA reform on downstream users of chemicals in the apparel, footwear, and textile industry.

During this webinar, Crowell & Moring, LLP and AAFA will discuss key aspects of the law that manufacturers and importers of apparel, footwear, and textiles should know when designing and implementing their chemical management programs.

Topics will include:

  • What to expect during the first year of TSCA implementation and beyond.
  • Proactive measures companies can take to minimize the impact of chemical regulatory unpredictability.

  • An analysis of the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2014 Chemical Work Plan from which the first ten chemicals will be selected by the EPA to undergo risk evaluation and possible restriction, and which of these chemicals are used in the production of apparel, footwear, and textiles.
Warren Lehrenbaum and Natalia Medley with Crowell and Moring will be speaking during this webinar.
