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

FIFRA Hot Topics Webinar
Wednesday, April 20, 2022
12:00 p.m. ET
REGISTER

With year one of the Biden Administration’s term in the history books, we have a clearer sense of how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proceeding on all fronts. EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) is focusing on long-standing challenges, especially a renewed effort to meet Endangered Species Act (ESA) consultation requirements and determining how best to meet core pesticide registration review obligations in 2022. These program priorities must reflect special considerations for environmental justice and climate change, advance critical science and policy issues, develop a fifth Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA) implementation framework, and display a renewed commitment to working collaboratively with state partners and other stakeholders to implement the program.

Register now to join Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) for “FIFRA Hot Topics,” a complimentary webinar covering key OPP priorities and what companies should know to avoid market delays.

NNI Publishes Supplement to President Biden’s 2022 Budget
By Lynn L. Bergeson & Carla N. Hutton on April 8, 2022

On March 31, 2022, the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) published a supplement to President Biden’s 2022 budget request. The supplement serves as NNI’s annual report. According to the supplement, NNI has made significant progress toward the five goals of NNI identified in the 2021 NNI Strategic Plan. Furthermore, the nanotechnology research community continues to leverage former NNI investments that established a strong foundation of understanding at the nanoscale to combat COVID-19 and prepare for future pandemics.

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

What to Expect in Chemicals in 2022

Momentous changes initiated in 2021 will continue to influence policy development and rulemakings in 2022. Administration appointments in political leadership positions have been filled. New policies and priorities have been unveiled, and with Democrats in control, a more encouraging attitude toward regulation and regulatory initiatives has taken root.

Notwithstanding the emphasis declared by the White House about the issues of climate change and environmental justice for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Administration will continue to be challenged in having to address many other competing priorities. For EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP), emphasis on science integrity, reviewing decisions made by the Trump Administration in both the pesticide and industrial chemicals programs, meeting statutory deadlines looming over the work of both programs, and dealing with the constant problem of EPA-wide competing priorities will drive the OCSPP program budget and regulatory priorities.

What to Expect in Chemicals 2022” will delve into these important questions with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) professionals with decades of experience to help evaluate what to expect in 2022.

Topics Covered:

– White House and OCSPP priorities

– Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) issues and priorities

– Recent developments in EPA efforts to better coordinate FIFRA efforts and Endangered Species Act (ESA) requirements

– Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) implementation issues and priorities –

            – “Whole-chemical” approach to risk evaluations

            – Updated science and new assumptions used in risk evaluations

            – Status of existing chemicals risk evaluations

            – New chemicals program

Speakers Include:

Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, B&C

Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Director of Chemistry, B&C

James V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant, B&C

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) is celebrating our 20-Year Anniversary! NanoBCA has been committed to promoting the commercialization of products utilizing the science of nanotechnology. We were advocates of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). Our first success was the passage of the legislation to fund the NNI which was signed into law by President George W. Bush in December 2003. Our members were present to witness this historic event. As advocates of the science of nanotechnology, we returned to the White House during the Bush and Obama Administrations. In addition, during the last 20 years members of the NanoBCA have met with the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the House Committee on Science, Space & Technology.

We invite you to join the NanoBCA as an Individual or a Young Professional Member.
