2017 Villanova Environmental Law Journal Blank Rome LLP Symposium
Implementing the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act
Friday, February 10, 2017
9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
From household cleaning products and cosmetics to hand soap and food, Americans come into contact with thousands of different chemicals every day. For over 40 years, the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA) allowed existing chemicals to remain on the market for use without review of their safety. Recently, Congress passed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (LCSA), which updates federal regulation of chemicals to modernize TSCA. The LCSA affects chemical manufacturers and processors, as well as downstream businesses that use, import, export, or sell products containing chemicals. The 2017 Blank Rome LLP Villanova Environmental Law Journal Symposium will explore the business, environmental, and legal implications of the new legislation.
The Symposium takes place on Friday, February 10, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Rm 201 of Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law (299 North Spring Mill Road, Villanova). This program is approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 3 substantive CLE credits.
