Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted in Chemistry World Article “EPA Clears Chemicals Backlog”
On August 10, 2017, Lynn L. Bergeson, President of The Acta Group (Acta®), was quoted by Chemistry World regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “announcement that it has ‘eliminated’ the logjam of 600 new chemicals undergoing review” under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
Lynn Bergeson, a managing partner with the Washington, DC-based law firm Bergeson & Campbell that advises chemical companies about regulatory compliance, is enthusiastic about the developments. ‘This means that those new chemical notifications that were captured and subjected to the review procedures set out under the new TSCA law have now been cleared,’ she tells Chemistry World.
The 600 or so cases that have now been reviewed were ‘kind of held hostage’ by the updated TSCA, Bergeson says. She applauds the EPA for ‘expending extraordinary effort’ to get them through the system.
