What to Expect in Chemicals Policy and Regulation and on Capitol Hill in 2023
Tuesday, January 31, 2023
11:00 AM ET

REGISTER

This webinar offers our best-informed judgment as to the trends and key developments chemical industry stakeholders can expect in 2023. At a political level, the Republicans’ narrow control of the U.S. House of Representatives will almost certainly invite a greater degree of oversight of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) actions, particularly with respect to implementation of the 2016 amendments of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Concepts core to the Act, including “reasonably foreseen,” “to the extent necessary,” “systematic review,” and “best available science,” continue to evolve and not always in predictable, coherent, and consistent ways. Similar policy shifts are seen in the agricultural and biocidal area, with perhaps less dramatic effect. How the 2024 general election will influence EPA’s policy choices is unclear. In that the election cycle has already begun, we caution all to buckle up and prepare for what we expect will be an eventful, fascinating year.

Climate change is among the most pressing issues of our time. By understanding and controlling matter at the nanoscale, nanotechnology is helping develop and accelerate technologies and industries that address climate change and benefit society. With that in mind, the White House recently announced the launch of the NNI’s inaugural National Nanotechnology Challenge, Nano4EARTH. This challenge is a call to action to mobilize stakeholders to identify and address barriers to widespread adoption of nanoscale solutions to the climate change crisis.

To provide a venue for this critical discussion, we welcome the new year with the Nano4EARTH kick-off workshop. The workshop will be a forum for the community to share ideas on specific opportunities that can be achieved – especially through multiagency coordination – in a 4-year time frame; to identify barriers to the scale-up, adoption, and dissemination of climate nanotechnologies; to establish metrics to monitor progress; and to build connections across the diverse community.

ACTA Webinar 1/17: How Has the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability Changed REACH and CLP Regulations?

Posted on January 10th, 2023 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the following webinar.

 

 

 

ACTA Webinar: Two Years Later: How Has the Chemicals
Strategy for Sustainability Changed REACH and CLP Regulations?

Tuesday, January 17, 2023
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (EST)
3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (GMT)
Register Now

On October 14, 2020, the European Commission adopted the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability. The Strategy set into motion a series of remarkable actions by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) intended to transform the European Union (EU) into a sustainable and carbon neutral economy while improving protection of its people and the environment. The Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and the Classification, Labeling and Packaging (CLP) regulations are the cornerstones for regulating chemicals in the EU. The Strategy necessarily involves modifications to REACH and CLP to effectuate the Strategy’s goals. This webinar will explore exactly how the Strategy is fundamentally reshaping the REACH and CLP regulations in ways that are resetting the global stage in terms of identifying new hazard classes and New Approach Methodologies (NAM) for identifying them. We will focus on the practical implications of a large number of secondary legislations in the EU that will undoubtedly change forever core concepts of chemical hazard, risk assessment, and risk management.

REACH and CLP experts from the Brussels-based consultancies of EPPA and ToxMinds and from The Acta Group (Acta®), with offices in Brussels, the U.K., and Washington, D.C., will discuss the regulatory, scientific, and policy changes that are influencing chemical management in the EU and beyond.

Who Should Attend?
Chemical product stewards, regulatory specialists focusing on industrial chemical management, toxicologists, lawyers, regulatory chemists, hazard communication specialists, government affairs specialists, trade specialists, and all others responsible for managing and advising on issues pertinent to chemical management are invited to attend.

With the midterm elections over and the holiday season upon us, I felt that it was time to take a break from public policy. On this webinar, I would like to share with you an extraordinary true-life journey from Author, Laura Galloway. Laura will be presenting her story on our November webinar Dalvi – Six Years in the Arctic Tundra. Dalvi is the story of Laura’s time in a reindeer-herding village in the Arctic, forging a solitary existence as she struggled to learn the language and make her way in a remote community for which there were no guide books or manuals for how to fit in. Her time in the north opened her to a new world.

I hope you will be able to join us. Here are the webinar access details:

EPA Requests Nominations for Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals

Posted on November 15th, 2022 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to bring to your attention the following opportunity for the nanotechnology community:

 

 

By Lynn L. Bergeson and Carla N. Hutton

 

 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on November 10, 2022, that it is requesting nominations of prospective candidates for membership on the Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals (SACC) established under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 87 Fed. Reg. 67898. Any interested person or organization may nominate qualified persons to be considered for appointment to the SACC. Individuals may also self-nominate. Nominations are due December 12, 2022.

SACC serves as a scientific peer review mechanism of EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP). According to EPA, SACC provides independent scientific advice and recommendations to EPA on the scientific basis for risk assessments, methodologies, and pollution prevention measures and approaches for chemicals regulated under TSCA. Currently, there are 17 SACC members, with eight membership terms that will expire over the next year.

EPA states that its “rigorous scientific peer review processes ensure all Agency decisions are founded on credible science and data. Science provides the foundation for EPA policies, actions and decisions made on behalf of the American people.”

To be considered, all nominations should include the following information:

– Current contact information for the nominee (including the nominee’s name, organization, current business address, e-mail address, and daytime telephone number);

– The nominee’s disciplinary and specific areas of expertise;

– Research activities;

– Recent service on other federal advisory committees and national or international professional organizations; and

– When available, a biographical sketch of the nominee, indicating current position and educational background.

EPA states that it is seeking nominations from individuals who have demonstrated high levels of competence, knowledge, and expertise in scientific and other technical fields relevant to chemical safety and risk assessment. EPA seeks nominees with expertise in a variety of disciplines and focus areas, including human health and ecological risk assessment, biostatistics, epidemiology, pediatrics, physiologically based pharmacokinetics (PBPK), toxicology and pathology (including neurotoxicology, developmental/reproductive toxicology, and carcinogenesis), and chemical exposure pathways to susceptible life stages and subpopulations (women, children, and other potentially exposed subpopulations).

EPA states that nominees should have backgrounds and experiences that would contribute to the diversity of scientific viewpoints on the committee — including professional experiences in government, labor, public health, public interest, animal protection, industry, and other groups — and as the EPA Administrator determines to be advisable (e.g., geographical location; social and cultural backgrounds; and professional affiliations).
