On May 8, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it will hold the first meeting of the Science Advisory Committee on Chemicals (SACC) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (Lautenberg Act), for Pigment Violet 29 (PV29), the first chemical of the initial 10 chemicals undergoing review.
“This will be an important opportunity for the science experts on this new committee to provide their scientific and technical advice to EPA,” said EPA Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention Assistant Administrator Alexandra Dapolito Dunn. “This peer review ensures scientific rigor and enhances transparency of the risk evaluation process.”
For the ninth consecutive year, the Air & Waste Management Association Lake Michigan States Section (A&WMA-LMSS) will again be awarding a graduate student scholarship in memory of Mr. Stephen H.
