California 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 entitled California Dreaming or Reality?  California’s New Paradigm in Chemicals and Products Management Could be Coming to a Store Near You.”  The November 15, 2010, teleconference will discuss the 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.

Other speakers include:

  • Ann Grimaldi, McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, San Francisco, CA
  • Doug Fratz, Vice President, Scientific & Technical Affairs, Consumer Specialty Products Association, Washington, DC
  • Dr. Joseph Guth, UC Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry; and the Science and Environmental Health Network, Berkeley, CA
