The introductory part of the meeting dealt with the Toxic Substances Control Act, its purposes, how it is to be put into effect, its benefits, and its potential impact on industry and the environment. The main objectives of the Act were explained in detail, these being: (1) to develop information and (2) to regulate. Panel discussions dealt with pre-market notification and inventory testing procedures; rules of the State programs; and regional toxic substances problems. Questions were then taken from the floor, a number of which were on the subject of exemptions from the Act. Questioners included representatives of chemical companies, engineering firms, State agencies, and other businesses as well as private citizens.
