Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On June 21, 2017, Inside EPA quoted Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), in the article “As EPA Issues TSCA’s Framework Rules, Bipartisan Law Faces Challenges.”

[…] Lynn Bergeson, managing partner of the firm Bergeson & Campbell, suggested some concern in EPA’s ability to advance use of these new technologies. She too, noted Lautenberg’s requirements regarding non-animal testing, including its direction that EPA craft a plan to mange the transition by June 22, 2018.

“We find it very important and terrific that section 4(h) requires that EPA to the extent practicable reduce and replace animal testing,” she said. “It’s just unclear how EPA will develop the strategic plan… There are a whole host of other issues, [such as] what will screening and testing look like? What will mutually acceptable data look like? These are all fascinating issues to look for in the months and years ahead.” [subscription required]
