Over the course of his 30-year career at EPA, Chris developed and reviewed regulations, interpretive guidance, and other policies on TSCA matters, international chemical treaties, and international trade matters related to chemicals; represented the United States in the negotiation and implementation of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and at technical and policy meetings under the Rotterdam Convention on Prior Informed Consent; and earned numerous agency special citations and awards, including an EPA Gold Medal for Exceptional Service in 2017 for his work on the framework for implementing the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century amendment of TSCA.

Mr. Blunck received his law degree from George Mason University School of Law and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental, Population, and Organism Biology from the University of Colorado.
