California’s Green Chemistry Initiative: How To Prepare For New SCPA Regs
|Date / Time:
California regulators are making moves to further reduce the use of toxic chemicals in products and industrial processes by launching the Green Chemistry Initiative. The latest effect is the California Department of Toxic Substances Control's (DTSC) publication of the Safer Consumer Product Alternatives Regulations with a deadline for public comments of October 11, 2012
If your operations will be impacted by the new regs, you MUST have an understanding of their requirements. For example, once codified into regulation, the new regs will establish a list of approximately 1200 chemicals of concern (COC), a process to identify additional COCs, and an evaluation process for products that include COCs to create a list of "Priority Products." As you can guess, these regulations will be far reaching. How do you best prepare?
Spend just 90 minutes in this lively interactive webinar where a seasoned environmental lawyer who has represented California industry and who has been closely tracking and participating in the California Green Chemistry Initiative, will help you better understanding the existing and future requirements so you can update and prepare a practical and effective compliance strategy.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- What is the Green Chemistry Initiative of 2007
- What are the Safer Consumer Product Alternatives (SCPA) Regulations and when will they go into effect
- How is the comment process playing out and what are some of the likely scenarios for the SCPA regulations
- What are the key goals of the Initiative
- What is the likely timeline of the key components of SPCA regulations
- What are the key terms and concepts including Chemicals of Concern, Priority Products list, Green Chemistry, Green Consumer Products Registry, Toxics Clearinghouse Database, and Product ingredient Network

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!

times and to share it with others in your office.
