​Inside EPA Article Quotes TSCA Blog Post “EPA Denies TSCA Section 21 Petition on Fluoride Chemicals in Drinking Water; Provides Response to Petition”

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On April 19, 2017, Inside EPA quoted a post from the TSCA Blog in the article “Suit Over EPA’s Rejection Of Fluoride Ban Claims TSCA Misinterpretation.”

“This asserted view, that only a comprehensive risk evaluation considering all conditions of use will suffice, presents a very high threshold for action — and seemingly an impossibly high threshold to move EPA to act,” officials with the law firm Bergeson & Campbell said in a March 7 blog post.


 Bergeson and Campbell attorneys said that EPA’s denial is “essentially arguing that since EPA must assess ‘all conditions of use’ in any control rule they might promulgate, then any outside petition must include all of the same homework before it can be granted.” [subscription required]
