Everything you need to know about the TSCA Section 5 review process.
The passage of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act in 2016 had a profound impact on the US New Chemicals Program. This workshop will highlight important changes in the new chemical program and provide technical training on the risk assessment process, building upon training material originally developed under the US EPA Sustainable Futures program.
During this hands-on workshop run by ChemicalWatch in partnership with knoell, you will learn the methods and models to conduct a preliminary risk assessment before submitting new chemical notifications to the US EPA, so you can better anticipate regulatory concerns and identify critical outcomes. knoell's Senior Regulatory Scientists Jeff Hafer and Kelly Mayon-Bean will highlight useful notification strategies and demonstrate tools to help you identify risk-prone activities, support targeted testing strategies and potentially reduce the Agency review time by decreasing the need for back-and-forth communication during the notification period.
The workshop includes in-depth presentations on hazard, exposure and risk screening to address ecological and human health concerns, with hands-on sessions with US EPA and OECD computer-based models.
