HCPA’s Ignite Solutions Focuses Sights on TSCA High Priority List

On March 21st, 2019 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its second list of chemicals identifying the top candidates for high priority designation later this year, as required by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The release of this list now initiates the overall risk evaluation process of each of these chemicals, culminating in a final risk management ruling between 2023-2026. These evaluations will require a number of meetings with the EPA, potential data generation and overall collaboration with key industry stakeholders to ensure the best methodologies, protocols, and scientific data is provided. These activities, and more can be facilitated by HCPA’s Ignite Solutions.

Ignite Solutions currently manages more than 25 active task forces that specialize in TSCA-related activities and industry initiatives. This type of industry collaboration not only provides cost-sharing capabilities for the members involved, it also creates an industry-aligned voice on any given topic that will carry additional weight during policy, regulatory and scientific discussions. These types of partnerships are, in fact, encouraged by the EPA, as it reduces the workload for their staff and increases the efficiencies of the overall review process.

If you would like to discuss the ways in which Ignite Solutions can assist your TSCA-related efforts, please contact Zach Parkhill, Project Manager for assistance at zparkhil@thehcpa.org.
