Lautenberg Act Overview

On June 22, 2016, President Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. The Lautenberg Act updates the Toxics Substances Control Act (TSCA) for the first time since the law was adopted in 1976. This information sheet provides a brief introduction to some of the elements of the law. More detailed information is available from other TURA program materials and from the U. S. EPA.
