DG Digest: TSCA Reform Bill passes the Senate and FMCSRs require seatbelts for passengers in CMVs

US Capitol Building, Washington DC, USA

Short and sweet today, but look out later this week for a detailed look at the Toxic Substance Control Act!

TSCA Reform Bill:

After passing the House of Representatives the previous week, the much anticipated revisions to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) have passed the Senate as well. The legislation now only requires a signature from the President to become a final rule.

The TSCA updates are significant, and will help ensure that chemicals used in commerce are used safely with more effective federal oversight.  Look for a comprehensive blog on the TSCA changes to be posted by Labelmaster later this week.


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that passengers riding in commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) will be required to use seat belts whenever the vehicles are operated on public roads in interstate commerce. The new rule becomes effective August 8, 2016, and holds motor carriers and drivers responsible for ensuring that the passengers riding in the property-carrying CMV are using seatbelts.
