Cardno ChemRisk professionals will be offering a seminar series that will explore common and emerging issues encountered by EHS professionals in various industries. This seminar series will explore common and emerging issues encountered by EHS professionals in various industries. The purpose of these talks is to share our experience navigating a variety of challenges including: human health risk assessments of multi-constituent products, occupational exposure level derivation, product safety, regulatory compliance (e.g., TSCA, Prop. 65, OSHA, RoHS), baseline exposure assessments, occupational health considerations during emergencies, and emergency response.


First Webinar:

The first webinar for this series will be held on December 13, 2017 from 11:00-12:00 PM PST by Marisa Kreider, PhD, DABT:

  • Title: "Risk Assessment Under the “New TSCA”: How Manufacturers Can Help the EPA Accurately Characterize Their Industry" 
  • Summary: With the new legislation amending the Toxic Substances Control Act, chemicals in the United States are undergoing increased scrutiny with respect to potential impacts on human health and the environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now required to make a definitive determination of risk for every chemical, including new chemicals and those already in commerce. This presentation will outline the methods that the U.S. EPA will use to evaluate chemical risk for both new and existing chemicals, and address how companies can assist the EPA in accurately representing their processes when determining risk associated with chemicals they use. 
  • ABIH® Diplomates can earn up to 1 technical contact hour for this event.

Future Webinars:

The next webinar for this series will be held on Wednesday January 24, 2018 at 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST by Jim Keenan, PhD, MS, DABT

  • Title: "Developing Safety Procedures for Thermal Runaway Incidents”
  • Summary: Dr. Jim Keenan will discuss the inherent risks associated with lithium ion thermal runaway. His webinar will cover the danger of burns to workers as well as potential smoke inhalation.

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.

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.


Next Week’s Topic: PMN Review and Review Period Issues

Section 5 of TSCA has changed!  Before a new substance is allowed onto the market EPA must now make "an affirmative finding of safety" under a new risk-based safety standard. EPA must also consider “conditions of use,” and “potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulations," but not cost, availability of alternatives, or other non-risk factors. Since the changes in the law, many new substances will be cleared only after issuance of section 5(e) orders, which may impose restrictions on manufacture / import volume, water release, and occupational safety and health practices.  As before, the Agency will make conservative assumptions in predicting toxicity and exposure, necessitating a more strategic approach to PMN management and chemical risk assessment including identification of existing data and more accurate descriptions of applications and uses, and filling data gaps using read-across approaches or development of new toxicological data. Topics will include:

·         Changes to the New Chemical Review Process

·         The New Standard of Review

·         New Data Requirements

·         More Surprises to Come

·         What Manufacturers Should Do
