Description

As the window of time for bringing new chemical products to market continues to narrow, it is increasingly essential that the process of commercialization (bringing a chemical from an R&D lab to the market as a product) be completed as quickly as possible. Complying with TSCA Inventory Requirements is a how-to book that succinctly delivers the relevant information about the Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxic Substances Control Act to chemistry professionals working in a corporate environment. Author Chan Thanawalla provides step-by-step directions for meeting TSCA regulations, vastly simplifying the compliance process for any professional responsible for these procedures in the chemical industry.

The hallmark of the book is its description of the textual and schematic processes used to check TSCA inventory compliance of chemicals for a variety of chemical operations. In addition to this vital, practical information, the author includes a history of how TSCA has evolved over the past twenty-five years with a discussion of specific TSCA provisions that avoids, wherever possible, cumbersome legal jargon in favor of easy-to-understand explanation. Complying with TSCA Inventory Requirements also contains all the necessary EPA forms, instruction manuals, and guidance documents that may be needed to secure the compliance, including:

-Notice of Commencement Form (EPA Form 7710-56)
-PreManufacture Notice (PMN) Form (EPA Form 7710-25)
-PMN and NOC Instruction Manual
-Polymer Exemption Guidance Manual

Complying with TSCA Inventory Requirements promises to streamline the standardization process of compliance like never before.
