An article on LawyersandSettlements.com on asbestos related amendments to TSCA:

In later years, as lawsuits pushed asbestos onto the front pages, there has been a push to remove asbestos from buildings. However, the latter has resulted in a second wave of exposure: in the same way as workers manufacturing, and installing asbestos were exposed decades ago, workers exposed to asbestos during removal face similar risks, as asbestos poses the most risk when it is disturbed.

An amendment to the Toxic Substances Control Act to reduce the health risks posed by asbestos-containing materials and products having asbestos-containing material, was voted on and passed by the Senate early last month, but awaits approval in the House of Representatives, and ultimately Presidential Approval.

Testimonial

Tectran used Nexreg for preparation of our MSDS and label for new Pendilube product launch. We found Mike Moffatt to be very helpful and thorough. We knew of most of the regulations that we were required to meet but with his help and document preparation we were able to have the confidence that we were covering all the required regulations that impacted our product.
