Federal Facilities and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
The Toxic Substances and Control Act (TSCA) is the primary federal statute regulating the use of certain chemicals and substances, lincluding asbestos, PCBs, radon and lead. Federal facilities have regulatory responsibilities under TSCA, including complying with regulations governing the proper handling, use, storage and disposal of certain substances and maintaining records. Part of EPA's mission is to ensure that federal facilities comply with these requirements.
