How the Proposed TSCA Ban on Trichloroethylene Solvent Cleaning Impacts Your Facility -

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: What is the future of TCE in the workplace? Learn the timeline and real-life impact of the proposed TSCA ban on trichloroethylene solvent cleaning.

The EPA has proposed a ban on specific uses of trichloroethylene (TCE) in response to health risks identified in a 2014 study conducted under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).  The proposed ban will limit exposure to a chemical that is the source of respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney, immune system, and fetal development concerns.

TCE is used in solvent degreasers for the cleaning of metal parts and electronic components, some dry-cleaning operations, and commercial and consumer products for spot cleaning and artwork print finishing. If your facility manufactures, handles, or uses TCE for these purposes, the proposed ban will have significant impacts on your operations, and your entire supply chain.

Prepare for the proposed ban now! It’s important to understand the details and timeline of the proposed ban so that alternative solvents and cleaning techniques can be adequately evaluated, notifications can be provided on time, and all other compliance obligations can be met.

Use this on-demand webinar to learn how to prepare and how to participate in ongoing regulatory discussions, if it makes sense for your organization to do so.

You’ll learn:

  • Why the proposed TCE ban is being considered
  • The timeline of the proposed TCE ban including critical dates to know and the anticipated outcome of the proposed ban under the Trump administration
  • Typical industry sectors, operations, and processes where TCE is used
  • Critically review the public comments made by industry, NGOs, and other involved third parties as well as EPA and the Small Business Administration’s (SPA) positons
  • Key elements of the proposed TCE ban as they apply to your organization
  • Various alternatives to TCE to identify those that might be feasible for your organization’s operations
  • The potential impact of the proposed TCE ban on your organization’s operation
  • Strategies for developing and implementing a program if and when the proposed TCE ban goes into effect
