Strengthening chemical regulations through the Lautenberg Act

This past June, President Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. The law was designed to reform the previous legislation regulating chemical safety, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), which was passed in 1976. Critics of the TSCA found flaws in the law's inability to review chemicals developed and sold on the market because the law mandated that the government had to have evidence proving the risks associated with the chemical before testing could commence. Critics also stated that the TSCA incorporated a trade secrets loophole in legislation which allowed chemical companies to declare chemical information to be proprietary information, prohibiting the chemical information from being released in public.
