Baron, MSPH, Director of Hazard Communication and International Registration Strategy, and Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Director of Chemistry, will present the full-day Regulatory Jurisdiction Workshop on October 2, 2023, an intermediate course where participants will gain a clearer understanding of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) in action; acquire better awareness of how different activities and product claims shift regulatory jurisdiction; and learn strategies to ensure compliance, and how to respond to regulatory authorities. Participants will also gain a better understanding on the information provided in Safety Data Sheets and labels and how it relates to potential pitfalls in compliance.
