IPC Issues Statement on TSCA Modernization Act of 2015

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, May 14, 2015 — On behalf of  IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® and an estimated 800,000 people employed in our 2,200 U.S. member facilities, we commend the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy for taking action on the draft TSCA Modernization Act of 2015. 

IPC supports bipartisan efforts to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, which needs to be modernized to reflect 21st century realities.  A strong,cost-effective, science-based federal chemical regulatory program is important to our members, their customers, and all consumers. The draft bill offered by Subcommittee Chairman John Shimkus (R-IL) is a positive step in the right direction.                                      

Although the bill does not address IPC’s concerns regarding the current TSCA reporting requirements that create an incentive to landfill byproducts rich in valuable metals, rather than recycle them, IPC appreciated the statements of Subcommittee Chairman John Shimkus (R-IL) and members Bill Johnson (R-OH) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) on this issue, and their stated intention to work with their colleagues, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and industry stakeholders to reach a balanced resolution of this issue.
