The “PIPing” Point — A Conversation with Kelly Scanlon, DrPH, Director of EHS at IPC
Dr. Scanlon’s audio quality was affected during parts of this interview due to technical issues. We apologize for the inconvenience.
This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Kelly Scanlon, DrPH, CIH, Director of Environmental Policy & Research, Global Government Relations, at IPC. IPC, as many of you know, is an organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute as a standards development organization. It publishes the most widely used acceptability standards for the electronic industry. Dr. Scanlon was brought on at IPC in 2019 to direct environment, health, and safety (EHS) policy and research, a role that has become critically important given certain Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) rulemakings that have extended TSCA jurisdiction to certain electronic product manufacturers. These regulatory developments, implemented against a backdrop of supply chain disruption occasioned by COVID-19, have made for a very eventful and likely unexpected first two years on the job. Dr. Scanlon and I discuss IPC’s work on EHS policy, enhanced regulation of articles under TSCA, and other challenges the electronics industry faces.
