Global Chemical Control Handbook: A Guide To Chemical Management Programs


The attorneys, scientists, and regulatory professionals of B&C
and The Acta Group (Acta®) are proud to have authored Global
Chemical Control Handbook: A Guide to Chemical Management Programs
recently released by the American Bar Association. Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing
Partner of B&C and President of Acta, provided the guiding vision for this
comprehensive desk reference book as editor and co-author.

Reflecting on the work of her colleagues, and others, on this
book, Ms. Bergeson stated: “The Global Chemical Control Handbook
reflects the expert counsel and advice of seasoned professionals that have been
honed by years of ‘in the trenches’ experience with the global chemical
programs outlined in the book. Readers can expect from the Handbook the
hands-on information they need quickly to point them in the right direction
when addressing an increasingly complex set of legal, regulatory, and
commercial challenges occasioned by these global chemical management

Globalization and the emergence worldwide of sophisticated
chemical management programs invite complex legal, commercial, and scientific
challenges. These challenges extend far beyond compliance questions that, by
comparison, seem now nostalgically straightforward. The Handbook is organized
by country and/or regulatory program and includes stand-alone sections
discussing forecasts and trends.

Each of the focused chapters in the Handbook, and the helpful commentary
and resources, help to ground environmental professionals and readers-at-large
in the diverse regulatory structures that they may encounter in hands-on
interactions with chemical management regulations in the United States or
abroad. Knowing what to expect, and how to prepare for it, are essential steps
in successfully navigating these systems.
