Green Chemistry Regulations:
Verdant is pleased to announce that Philip Moffat will participate on a “quick teleconference” program sponsored by the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources, titled “California Dreaming, Reality, or Nightmare? California’s New Paradigm in Chemicals and Products Regulation Is Coming to a Store Near You.” The December 13, 2011, teleconference will discuss the substantially revised regulations recently proposed by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to implement AB 1879, a new California Green Chemistry Initiative law designed to “accelerate the quest for safer products” in the state. In addition to discussing the law’s requirements and its implementation, the teleconference will provide both industry and public health perspectives.
