Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted By Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Regarding How Manufacturers Should Participate in EPA Rulemaking
On February 10, 2017, Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), Lynn L. Bergeson, was quoted in the Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report article “Vehicle, Furniture Makers Urged to Increase Role in Toxics Law.”
Lynn Bergeson, managing partner of the Washington, D.C., office of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., said some manufacturers, such as companies that purchase nanoscale chemicals to make sports equipment, aren’t well positioned to actively participate in EPA’s rulemakings.
Nevertheless responsible product manufacturers will want to know whether their products pose risks regardless of regulatory initiatives under way due to the TSCA amendments, she told Bloomberg BNA.
Knowing how the EPA interprets the chemicals law can help, Bergeson said.
For example, knowing the information and approaches the agency will use to assess risks can help a company know what data may be useful to show that the business’s use of a chemical does not pose an unreasonable risk, she said.
