Regulatory Reform Agenda Meeting for OCSPP/OPPT (TSCA & TRI)

Apr. 19, 2017

EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) is holding a public meeting on Monday, May 1, 2017 to discuss regulatory reform opportunities involving regulations governing chemical safety activities under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) rules. Specifically, we are soliciting input from stakeholders to help identify those regulations that that might be appropriate for repeal, replacement or modification per Executive Order 13777 on Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda.

Brent Kynoch, Managing Director of the Environmental Information Association will be  offering oral comments and written testimony regarding the need to maintain existing asbestos regulations and to offer more vigorous enforcement. This meeting is being called as a result of President Trump's Executive Order to determine if there are unnecessary environmental regulations.

EPA Pubic Comment Period On Asbestos and other Chemicals Identified in TSCA List

Mar. 10, 2017

EPA is interested in information from the public about these chemicals including uses, products containing these chemicals, exposed populations, and alternatives to each of these chemicals. EPA has opened these dockets to receive information from the public and the deadline for comment is March 15. NOTE: EPA has informed us that it is more effective for them to receive several comments/letters from individuals than to receive one letter representing a group or an organization. EIA encourage all of our members to submit comment. We are providing sample letters submitted, one designed for school officials and one designed for environmental professionals. We encourage you to drop this text into your letterhead and revise for your use. We have also provided directions to submit. Please contact info@eia-usa.org or call 888-343-4342 if you have any questions.
