Resources on TSCA Reform


The U.S. Chemical Safety System is Broken

The federal system that should protect our health and the environment from dangerous chemicals in our homes, schools, and workplaces - the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 - is outdated and ineffective. Rates of cancer, learning disabilities, and many other health conditions linked to toxic chemicals are skyrocketing. For ten years, states and many businesses have begun acting to get some of the worst chemicals out of everyday products. Now Congress is finally considering proposals to fix TSCA and protect our health.
