What do “reasonably foreseen” and “unreasonable risk” really mean? — A Conversation with Richard Engler, Ph.D. and Todd Stedeford, Ph.D.
This week I sat down with Dr. Richard E. Engler, B&C’s and The Acta Group’s (our consulting affiliate) Director of Chemistry, and Dr. Todd J. Stedeford, B&C’s Of Counsel, to discuss a range of issues regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) all important implementation of the Lautenberg amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Rich was a 17-year veteran of EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) before joining our team. Todd is a more recent addition to our team, and is a lawyer and a toxicologist who recently completed a 20-year career with EPA where he served most recently as Senior Science Advisor in EPA’s OPPT, and in other EPA leadership positions.
Rich and Todd discuss a range of issues I know our listeners will find interesting and timely. These include EPA new chemical reviews, when is something “reasonably foreseen,” and what is an “unreasonable risk,” among other topics.
