First Webinar:

The first webinar for this series will be held on December 13, 2017 from 11:00-12:00 PM PST by Marisa Kreider, PhD, DABT:

  • Summary: With the new legislation amending the Toxic Substances Control Act, chemicals in the United States are undergoing increased scrutiny with respect to potential impacts on human health and the environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now required to make a definitive determination of risk for every chemical, including new chemicals and those already in commerce. This presentation will outline the methods that the U.S. EPA will use to evaluate chemical risk for both new and existing chemicals, and address how companies can assist the EPA in accurately representing their processes when determining risk associated with chemicals they use.
