May 2014

The 4th Safer Consumer Products Summit, the only national conference of its kind, will provide the most up-to-date information available on California's implementation of the Safer Consumer Products Regulations (SCPR), the most expansive Green Chemistry law in the world, drill down on the rapidly evolving state and international consumer safety regulatory landscape, and discuss the latest developments in legislative efforts to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act.

Jim Jones, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Assistant Administrator, Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, will be one of the keynote speakers. Mr. Jones will provide an update on EPA's Chemical Management Program. Meredith Williams, Deputy Director, Safer Products and Workplaces Program of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), will give a keynote address on candidate chemicals, priority products, and the next phases of California's SCPR.

June 2014

The theme of the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute's 2014 conference, “Advancing Chemistry, Innovating for Sustainability,” highlights innovations in the science and application of greener chemistry & engineering needed to build a more sustainable future. Over three days, a wide array of topics will be covered—with 5 concurrent sessions every morning and afternoon plus a poster session.

August 2014

Co-hosted by the Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG™), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and George Washington University (GWU)

August 5-7, 2014, at the GWU Campus in Washington, D.C.

During this hands-on three-day workshop, you will learn about a variety of tools, methods, and models that can be used to assess the hazard and potential exposure of chemicals. Methods addressed will include hazard and risk screening for human health, ecotoxicity, and environmental fate.

The workshop includes in-depth presentations and hands-on sessions with EPA’s computer-based models. Using these models, companies can identify potentially risky chemicals early in the development process and reduce risk by finding safer substitutes and/or processes before submitting them to EPA. They can also be used to help stakeholders identify potential chemicals of concern from existing chemical inventories or supply chains.

Invited presenters include EPA Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) staff with experience in the EPA New Chemicals Program and Premanufacture Notification (PMN) review process.
