EPA TSCA compliance strategies for nanoscale materials
(Nanowerk News) Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. is pleased to present a Webinar on "EPA TSCA Compliance Strategies for Nanoscale Materials" on May 13, 2009 at 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. ET.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is committed to assisting manufacturers and importers of nanoscale materials and other nanotechnology stakeholders understand and comply with the complexities of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. is deeply involved in the law, regulation, and science policy implications of nanotechnology.
This Webinar will provide an overview of the basics in TSCA compliance with respect to new nanoscale chemical substances that require the submission of a pre-manufacture notification with EPA.
This Webinar will help you:
Understand EPA's approach for classifying nanoscale materials as new or existing chemical substances.
Learn about the TSCA process for placing new chemical substances on the TSCA Inventory.
Learn about the current and future status of EPA's nanotechnology program.
Understand the business and commercial implications of non-compliance.
Consider strategies for supporting compliance and reducing enforcement vulnerability.
