Several key issues emerged as pivotal in ongoing efforts to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Progress on these complex issues is central to the success of TSCA reform. To foster further discussion of these critical topics, ELI convened a series of issue-specific lunchtime webinars during the summer and fall of 2011 that provided a forum for focused dialogue among key players. On Oct. 26, 2011, experts met to discuss a range of TSCA reform issues related to information disclosure and dissemination, including: reform of CBI Practices; public access to information/ databases; and information-sharing down the supply chain.
