Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted in Bloomberg Environment Article “Auto, Other Importers to Get Chemical Fees Break, EPA Says”

On March 25, 2020, Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) was quoted by Bloomberg Environment in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to not go after certain companies that failed to identify themselves to help pay a portion of the chemical risk evaluation fee imposed by a Toxic Substances Control Act fee rule issued in October 2018. The exempted companies include those that import products such as cars, computers, and furniture that contain one or more of the 20 chemicals; manufacturers that produce the chemicals as a byproduct—an incidental or secondary product—of something else they make; and companies that make or import any of the chemicals as an impurity.

Lynn L. Bergeson, managing partner with Bergeson & Campbell PC, said the agency is listening to stakeholders who were unhappy with the original fee plan.

“EPA’s plan is exactly what the doctor ordered, so to speak,” she said.
