Keller and Heckman LLP and Cardno ChemRisk present a webinar series on the changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) resulting from the June 22, 2016 passage of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (Lautenberg Act).

Next Week’s Topic: The Chemical Prioritization Rule and Its Implications

This month we will discuss the Chemical Prioritization Rule proposed on January 17, 2017 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Section 6(b)(1)(A) of TSCA now requires EPA to promulgate procedures for prioritizing chemicals for risk evaluations, which must include the criteria for high-priority and low-priority chemical designations. The proposal indicates that EPA is setting a low bar for high-priority designations and that EPA anticipates designating a large number of chemical substances as high-priority. During this webinar we will discuss:

      EPA’s use of evaluation criteria from the Work Plan Chemicals Program;

      A Work Plan Chemical case study;

      The prioritization process and timeline;

      Uses subject to review;

      Preemption implications;

      Predicting future chemicals for prioritization; and

      What manufacturers should do.

Registration for this program is complimentary, but required. Click here to register today.

Every year the staff at Cardno ChemRisk's Chicago office take a vote and choose a local charity to volunteer for and this year we decided to spend a day volunteering for PAWS Chicago. We spent the day learning about this animal shelter that is committed to ending the euthanasia of homeless cats and dogs. They have built a model shelter and hope to bring their plan to other cities across the United States. We helped with stocking supplies, creating information packets and cleaning around the shelter. Then for the last thirty minutes of our visit we were able to socialize with the cats and dogs, this was in an effort to keep them socialized with humans, but it was also fun for us! It was a valuable experience and a great way to spend the morning.
