David Fischer Quoted in Article on Reopening of TSCA Evaluations
Keller and Heckman Counsel David Fischer was quoted in the Inside TSCA article, “EPA Plan to Reopen TSCA Evaluations Could Deepen Resource Crunch.” During Keller and Heckman’s April 7th TSCA 30/30 webinar, David warned attendees that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) plan to revise some or all of its 10 TSCA existing-chemical evaluations risks overburdening an office within EPA that struggled to complete the first set of studies by statutory deadlines and faces an even more difficult challenge from the law’s requirement to evaluate another 20 chemicals in the same three-year window.
David, a former Deputy Assistant Administrator of EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OSCPP) noted, “What I said to the transition team when I was at EPA is, if you’re going in that direction, there’s the principle of organization assimilated capacity.
