Automotive Groups Challenge Restrictions on Refrigerant, Say EPA Limits Unsupported

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

The December 30, 2010, issue of BNA Daily Environment Report quotes Lynn L. Bergeson regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s significant new use rule (SNUR) for the refrigerant known as HFO-1234yf. According to Bergeson, the final rule was based on an entirely new risk assessment and data first made available for review when the SNUR was issued on October 27, 2010, meaning EPA promulgated the SNUR without adequate notice and comment, in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act.
