California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is currently accepting applications to serve on the Green Ribbon Science Panel. Members of the Panel come from both the private and public sectors and are experts in a variety of fields, including chemistry, public health, risk analysis, and materials science. The Panel draws on its scientific and technical expertise in advising the DTSC as well as the California Environmental Policy Council on various green chemistry and chemicals policy issues. The first Panel was assembled in 2009 and advised DTSC on developing the Safer Consumer Products regulations which just went into effect last month. Moving forward, the new Green Ribbon Science Panel will address implementation of the Safer Consumer Products program.
The deadline for applications is this Friday, November 15, 2013.
