Toxic Substance Control Act Compliance (TSCA)


Partnering With You to Keep Your Toxic Substances Where They Belong

Our experience interpreting and applying TSCA regulations can make a real difference when you’re dealing with Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) wastes from site investigation, remediation, demolition, and construction projects. We perform detailed assessments and interpret these regulations to your site’s circumstances, demonstrating compliance efficiently and cost-effectively.



TSCA: Background and Purpose

A clean-up of a spill, release, or other form of unauthorized disposal is strictly regulated based on the source concentration and the date of the spill. Enacted in 1976 (40 CFR 761), TSCA regulates the manufacture, distribution, use, and disposal of specific chemical substances.  The PCB Mega Rule Amendments of the TSCA were issued in 1998 and included PCB remediation regulations. 


PCB Remediation

Whether you’re controlling a small spill from a transformer, impacted soils along railroad beds, or contaminated soils at Superfund sites, we can identify practical, cost-effective solutions to get you back in TSCA compliance quickly. We have also developed TSCA-regulated Self-Implementing Cleanup Plans and PCB performance and risk-based remediation projects.
