Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Quoted by Bloomberg Environment Regarding Late NoC as EPA Updates TSCA Inventory

The ACTA Group

On July 25, 2018, Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Director of Chemistry, The Acta Group (Acta®), was quoted by Bloomberg Environment regarding late notices of containment (NoC) filed as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) brings the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) inventory up to date in the article “EPA OK’d Apparent Violations of Chemicals Law.”

Sometimes the agency fails to process a commencement notice correctly, said Richard E. Engler, director of chemistry with the Washington office of Bergeson & Campbell P.C.

In such cases, the agency seems to be allowing companies to resubmit the required commencement notice, said Engler, who worked at the EPA for 17 years reviewing new chemicals.

“Not filing within 30 days is a violation, but a fairly minor one,” he said. The agency’s focus this year is making sure its TSCA inventory is accurate, he said.
