Advocacy in Action | SOCMA Voices Concern Over Changes to MPU Exclusion, Hazardous Waste Incineration Backlog Hindering Production
SOCMA advocated on our member companies’ behalf with EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM) about the impact that changes to the Manufacturing Process Unit (MPU) Exclusion under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) have on specialty chemical facilities. The meeting also focused on the Definition of Solid Waste and the impeding backlog of hazardous secondary waste incineration.
The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA) significantly expands FDA’s rulemaking and enforcement authority over cosmetics and creates substantial new compliance obligations for manufacturers, packers, and distributors of cosmetics intended for sale in the United States.
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) including the 2016 Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act (LCSA) amendments grant the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the authority to collect fees from chemical manufacturers and importers to offset up to 25% of the costs associated with the overall implementation and administration of TSCA.
On September 7, SOCMA staff and three member companies met with the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to present the specialty chemical industry’s unique perspective on the soon to be released proposed TSCA Fees Rule.
