ECIA Hosts Webinar on EPA’s Recent Toxic Substance Restrictions

ATLANTA – The U.S.  Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced five new substance restrictions under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), creating significant obligations for companies that do business in the U.S.

ECIA has joined forces with Assent Compliance to update members on exactly what these new regulations mean for the electronic components industry.

Join the webinar on Nov. 4th at 1 PM ET to learn about these new requirements, the deadlines for compliance, and upcoming changes to the act.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The five commonly used substances in scope of TSCA Section 6 restrictions, including PIP 3:1.
  • Supply chain risks posed by the new rules.
  • The EPA update and new timeline for compliance.

“Keeping everyone updated on environmental compliance issues that affect our industry is one of our most valuable services for members,” observed Don Elario, ECIA’s Vice President of Industry Practices. “Assent’s TSCA experts keep a close watch on legislation, so we are very fortunate to grab some of his time to update us. There will be time at the end for questions,” he added.

Over his 30 years in global product compliance, food and beverage regulations, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) standards, and other health and safety standards, Bruce has promoted product safety and compliance through his work with large organizations, including Whirlpool, Exxon Mobil, the American Petroleum Institute and the U.S. Air Force.
