IHS Chemical Week Quotes Lynn L. Bergeson On EPA Implementing TSCA Reform

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On July 11, 2016, Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell (B&C®), was quoted in the IHS Chemical Week article “Responsible Care: TSCA reform and enhancing product safety.”

“Chemical companies need to start paying attention to what EPA is doing and announcing—and raise concerns so they can be heard.” Lynn Bergeson, a managing partner at environmental law firm Bergeson & Campbell, agrees, adding chemical companies should “carefully monitor [EPA’s] rulemaking process immediately.”

Bergeson said that there are several things companies should to prepare, including knowing what types of chemicals manufactured and imported by the company within the last 10 years, to ensure each remains an “active” chemical for inventory reset, and preparing to substantiate CBI claims. Demonstrating the need for CBI, Bergeson says, will “not be easy as some will find this new requirement challenging, and institutionalizing a reliable system to ensure consistent compliance with this aspect of the new law will take time.”
