Trade is critical to the continued success of our country's specialty chemical industry and continued American leadership around the world. The chemical manufacturing sector is one of America's top exporting industries. SOCMA would like to work with the Administration to ensure there is open and fair trade that levels the playing field, particularly for our small and medium-sized manufacturers who are competing globally, and address barriers that impede the ability of U.S. specialty chemical manufacturers from growing their businesses.
In 2016, Congress passed important and historic Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform legislation, and we look forward to working with the Administration and team at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to build on the good work that has been done to date. We especially would like to see that implementation is done in a thoughtful and productive way.
SOCMA will actively work with Congress and the Administration to continue to grow the specialty chemical industry and create jobs and opportunities for the American public."
Since 1921, SOCMA has represented a diverse membership of small, medium and large chemical companies located around the world. www.socma.com
