Scientists Sought for New Committee to Advise EPA Office on Risk, Other Issues

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

The June 11, 2015, Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report article “Scientists Sought for New Committee To Advise EPA Office on Risk, Other Issues,” included quotes from Lynn L. Bergeson about the addition of an advisory committee for Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT).

“The new advisory committee offers a timely and excellent opportunity to provide input on critically important topics at the core of OPPT’s mission,” Lynn Bergeson, managing partner of Bergeson  & Campbell P.C., told Bloomberg BNA in an e-mail. Her law firm specializes in chemical regulation and policy.

“Since the demise of the last advisory committee, OPPT has not had the benefit of much needed independent input on critically important issues,” she said.

Bergeson referred to OPPT’s National Pollution Prevention and Toxics Advisory Committee (NPPTAC), which the agency dissolved in 2007 following the resignation of three environmental advocates.
