Regulatory & Scientific FAQs
Global Biopesticide Registration & Compliance
TSG has been involved with biopesticides since the beginning, and our strong international expertise in this area can provide a unique advantage to companies looking to develop a biopesticide market entry/expansion strategy, register new products, or maintain compliance in a constantly growing and changing regulatory environment.
The regulatory landscape for antimicrobial products is ever changing. TSG helps guide companies through the design and implementation of registration strategies to obtain approval and maintain compliance of traditional and novel antimicrobial products.
California’s Green Chemistry: SCP Program
The Safer Consumer Products regulations are a key part of California’s Green Chemistry Initiative. In 2008, California passed AB 1879, which stipulates that California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) must regulate hazardous chemicals in consumer products and evaluate their potential for safer alternatives. The Safer Consumer Products program went into effect on October 1, 2013, and it will be phased in slowly by DTSC.
California's Proposition 65
California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known as Proposition 65, was approved by voters to address the growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals.

Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program
In August 1996, Congress passed the Food Quality Protection Act and Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) Amendments which requires the U.S. EPA to initiate the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) to screen pesticides, commercial chemicals and environmental contaminants for their potential effect on the endocrine systems of humans and wildlife. EDSP is a two-tiered screening process aimed at identifying chemicals and determining their potential to disrupt the endocrine systems of mammals, birds and fish.
Globally Harmonized System & Safety Data Sheets
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is an international approach to hazard communication. GHS provides criteria for classification of chemical hazards and a routine approach to label elements and (material) safety data sheets. GHS was negotiated and agreed upon by hazard communication experts from various countries, international organizations and stakeholder groups.
TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR)
The CDR rule requires manufacturers and importers of chemical substances listed on the TSCA Inventory to report information about the manufacturing, importing, processing and use of the chemicals.
