Course Overview

ChemADVISOR understands how critical it is for companies that manufacture, import, process, or use chemicals in the US to possess the fundamental understandings of how TSCA affects their business.  This three-day course is designed to provide TSCA practitioners with the tools needed to perform their daily work. The course will use interactive instruction with a focus on today’s TSCA, where electronic reporting is the norm for Section 5 notices and other submissions. 

Students attending this course will receive hard copy handouts that will be used as references to take back to the office and for practical use in the course. References, URLs, citations and hard to find documentation on important TSCA issues will be provided via digital media.

The following aspects of TSCA will be covered:

  • Background and regulatory history
  • Section by section overview of the entire TSCA regulation
  • Notification and Exemption preparation
  • Use of EPA reporting tools for reporting and notifications
  • Up to date review of TSCA developments

Regulatory Coverage

This course covers all sections of the TSCA regulation with an emphasis on Section 5 notifications and Section 8 and other reporting requirements.


There are no knowledge or course prerequisites to take this course. This course is designed to provide a solid base of knowledge for someone new to TSCA and as a practical learning and refresher for the more experienced practitioner.

All students must:

  1. Register with CDX prior to class (instructions will be sent with registration confirmation)
  2. Bring their own notebook or laptop with e-TSCA software installed OR request to use a ChemADVISOR machine for the class (2 weeks notice is required)
