Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. Releases 2022 Forecast for U.S. Federal and International Chemical Regulatory Policy

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) and its consulting affiliate The Acta Group (Acta®) and consortia management affiliate B&C® Consortia Management, L.L.C. (BCCM) are pleased to offer you our Forecast 2022. The extraordinary diversity and complexity of global industrial, agricultural, and biocidal chemical initiatives in which our clients engage are reflected in the detailed summary that follows, prepared by the legal, scientific, and regulatory professionals of B&C, Acta, and BCCM. In this comprehensive overview, we offer our best informed judgment as to the trends and key developments we expect to see in 2022. Domestically, we expect to see more mature and consequential policy shifts reflecting the Biden Administration’s “all-of-government” commitment to environmental justice and continuing evolution of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s implementation of the Toxic Substances Control Act under Dr. Michal I. Freedhoff’s leadership. What role the forthcoming mid-term elections will have on these and other initiatives remains to be seen. Internationally, governance frameworks globally are evolving, becoming more specific in their application to chemicals, and in many cases promoting more specifically efforts to support sustainability and circularity.

We offer you our very best wishes for good health, happiness, and success in the New Year.
