Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. presented a complimentary webinar that reviewed EPA's current guidance and recent decisions on spray drift and volatilization issues and discussed what registrants may have to do to navigate the registration review process. Speakers included well recognized experts on these complex issues: Jeff Dawson, Senior Scientist, Chemist at EPA's Health Effects Division, B&C's Senior Scientist Susan H. Youngren, Ph.D., and Senior Government Consultant James V. Aidala, The webinar was moderated by Lisa M. Campbell, Founding Member of B&C. Their presentation was followed by a Q&A with webinar participants.
The theme for the 24th Annual Meeting was “Exposure Science Integration to Protect Ecological Systems, Human Well-Being, and Occupational Health.” The program’s intent was to foster the integration of exposure science as applied to community, occupational, and ecological health as recommended by the National Resource Council’s report Exposure Science in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy. On October 15, 2014, Carla N. Hutton gave a presentation on “Legal and Regulatory Considerations over the Lifecycle of a Nanomaterial.” Click the title to request a copy of the presentation.
This webinar was presented by the Air and Waste Management Association (AWMA). The commercialization of nanomaterials is rapidly growing. Existing laws are being used to manage potential risks and to promote nanomaterials’ benefits. Entities engaged with nanomaterials must be diligent and ensure commercial applications of nanomaterials pose no adverse effects. A proactive, informed approach can prevent adverse results and unintended consequences. Jim Alwood and Kenneth Moss, EPA, discussed how the U.S. regulatory framework is facilitating nanomaterial commercialization and discussed the process for notifications of nanomaterials under the Toxic Substances Control Act. Lynn L. Bergeson, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., addressed the beneficial applications of nanomaterials, and strategies stakeholders can pursue to ensure their nano activities are undertaken lawfully.
