Auto Care Association Applauds Congress On Modernizing The 1976 Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA)

The 40-year-old TSCA program has been a critical regulatory program affecting the global supply network that makes up the more than $356 billion auto care industry.

Auto Care AssociationBETHESDA, Md. — The Auto Care Association salutes Congress on the passage of monumental legislation to modernize the 1976 Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA).

The 40-year-old TSCA program has been a critical regulatory program affecting the global supply network that makes up the more than $356 billion auto care industry. This bipartisan effort to reform the national chemicals review program provides the Environmental Protection Agency with much-needed direction and authority to operate the TSCA program in a manner more in tune with the rate at which the auto care industry innovates.

The final law reflects significant compromise on behalf of all stakeholders from industry and environmental groups. The elements of the modernized program address the needs of business, while properly balancing the protection of public health and safety.

“Several members of Congress and their staff worked tirelessly for several years to see this law come to fruition, and we are grateful for their efforts,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “The Auto Care Association also is proud of its efforts on behalf of our members, working with a broad industry group, to finally obtain final passage of this much-needed reform.”
