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 might be appropriate for repeal, replacement or modification per Executive Order 13777 on Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda.
We are soliciting comments on the following questions:
- Are there regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification to reduce economic or other burdens on the regulated community, including small businesses or state and local government entities?
- Are there opportunities for EPA to streamline or consolidate reporting and recordkeeping requirements to reduce burden?
- Are there opportunities for EPA to improve regulatory effectiveness through adopting or encouraging innovations that reduce burden while facilitating environmental protection?
- Are there specific provisions within regulations that have achieved their original objective and are no longer necessary?
You may also submit written comments to docket EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190 on www.regulations.gov. Comments must be received by May 15, 2017. When submitting comments, please be as specific as possible, include any supporting data or other information, and provide a citation when referencing a specific regulation.
