Lynn L. Bergeson quoted in Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Story “EPA ‘Open for Business’ on Nanosilver, Administrative, Enforcement Actions Indicate.”

The ACTA Group

Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report featured comments by Lynn L. Bergeson regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recent conditional registration of HeiQ’s nanosilver pesticide to be used on textiles. In the article, Bergeson is quoted as saying “the relevance of HeiQ is not just that the EPA approved a single application under the terms of FIFRA. It also telegraphs that EPA is open for business for the purposes of reviewing applications. That’s a big deal.” The article goes on to report that EPA has proposed more conditional registrations for other companies that have not been issued yet, and quotes Bergeson as saying she “expects the EPA to work though its queue of pending applications to conditionally register nanosilver products.” Background information can be found in The Acta Group’s November 12, 2013 memo “Court Partially Vacates and Remands EPA’s Decision Granting Conditional Registrations for HeiQ’s Nanosilver Products,” available online.
