On June 29, 2023, B&C, along with the Environmental Law Institute and the George Washington University Milken Institute of Public Health, sponsored the all-day virtual conference, TSCA Reform -- Seven Years Later. The conference was hugely successful and over 700 people registered for it. The quality of the discussion, the caliber of the participants, and the timeliness of the content motivated us to repurpose the substantive sessions to enable our podcast audience to listen to the sessions in this venue. The topic of this podcast is the panel discussion on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) risk evaluation process under Lautenberg. The panel discussed various aspects of EPA’s risk evaluation of chemical substances under Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Section 6. The panel experts touch upon crucially important issues, including EPA’s potential use of European Union (EU) Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) data, EPA’s use of new approach methodologies (NAM), the effectiveness of a “whole chemical approach” to risk determinations, the incorporation of cumulative risk assessment (CRA) approaches, and much, much more.
