Lynn L. Bergeson, “Nanoscale Materials and TSCA:  EPA’s NPPTAC Recommends a Framework for a Voluntary Program,” Environmental Quality Management, Spring 2006.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Pollution Prevention and Toxics Advisory Committee (NPPTAC) forwarded to EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson on November 22, 2005, its document entitled Overview of Issues for Consideration by NPPTAC. The Overview of Issues document sets forth NPPTAC’s “analysis and views” on a framework for a voluntary program on existing engineered nanoscale materials. The framework is intended to complement the new nanoscale chemicals requirements promulgated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
