Kathleen M. Roberts Quoted By Bloomberg Environment Regarding Chemical Use Data Shared With EPA
On September 19, 2018, Kathleen M. Roberts, Senior Regulatory Consultant, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), was quoted by Bloomberg Environment in the article “U.S. Chemical Makers’ Sharing of Use Data Stirs Debate.”
TSCA and REACH also are different laws in different stages of implementation, which explains some of the divergent responses of U.S. and European manufacturers, said Kathleen M. Roberts, a senior regulatory consultant in Bergeson & Campbell, PC’s Washington office.
For example, REACH required chemical manufacturers and their corporate customers to provide specific exposure data for chemicals, whereas TSCA does not.
Companies up and down the chemical supply chain will likely provide the EPA more exposure information as the agency continues to implement the 2016 TSCA amendments and it becomes clearer what regulatory plans the agency is considering, Roberts said.
