Scott J. Burya, Ph.D. is a Regulatory Chemist with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®). Dr. Burya has assisted in the preparation and submission of over 100 notifications to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and commands a thorough and contemporary understanding of EPA’s review process for new chemicals under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). This specialized experience makes him an invaluable resource to assist clients in preparing robust and scientifically rigorous Premanufacture Notices (PMN) and Low Volume Exemptions (LVE) and in determining whether and which exemptions under TSCA apply, such as the polymer exemption, the research and development (R&D) exemption, and exemptions in 40 C.F.R. Section 720.30.

Before joining B&C, Dr. Burya held progressively senior positions in product safety and regulatory affairs for a multinational chemical company, where he managed teams and processes that addressed the requirements set by EPA, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), and Health Canada (HC). Notably, he led multidisciplinary teams composed of chemists, toxicologists, and third-party laboratories focused on submitting notifications for new technologies. In this role, Dr. Burya helped clear new chemical substances via PMNs, Food Contact Notifications (FCN), Canadian New Substances Notifications (NSN), Letters of No Objection (LONO), and other agency approvals required to commercialize products.

Dr. Burya holds a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from The Ohio State University.
