Keller and Heckman Partner Herb Estreicher and Counsel David Fischer were quoted in the Inside TSCA article “Industry Attorneys Say ‘Whole Chemical’ Policy Nullifies TSCA Preemption.” The article discusses the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) adoption of a whole-chemical approach when reviewing substances under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). During Keller and Heckman’s January 12 webinar, David said, “If the whole-chemical risk determination approach continues to move the way this administration would like, the orders are gone, preemption based on those orders is also gone and risk management will only be for unreasonable risk as it applies to the whole chemical.” Herb expanded on David’s statement, saying that the lack of preemption would lead to a decline in companies requesting evaluations under TSCA.
