Fern Abrams to Present on U.S. Chemicals Regulation at Prestigious Electronics Goes Green Conference


Reading time ( words)

On September 7, Fern Abrams, IPC’s director of regulatory affairs and government relations, will present at Electronics Goes Green 2016+ Conference in Berlin, Germany. Her presentation, “Evolution of U.S. Chemicals Regulation: Updating the Toxic Substances Control Act for the 21st Century” will provide an overview of the main U.S. Chemicals Regulation, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the long road to reform, final legislation and the key issues for the electronics industry.

In addition, Abrams will highlight the “whys” of TSCA reform, and main provisions within the final legislation, including preemption of U.S. state laws and regulation of substances in articles, and the U.S. EPA’s implementation plan for the next several years.

IPC supported the bipartisan efforts to reform TSCA because a strong, cost-effective, science-based federal chemical regulatory program is important to our members, who use chemicals to manufacture electronics for the nation’s defense, aerospace, automotive, consumer and other industries
