Many green businesses may assume that they do not need to be concerned with regulations, such as the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), because they are using or making “non-toxic” chemicals.  Manufacturers and importers have regulatory obligations that apply to all chemicals, both benign and hazardous.  Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines and other consequences that could cripple a business, just as it is getting started.  Dr. Richard E. Engler will provide an overview of some of the key new chemical regulations of which entrepreneurs and innovators should be aware, including TSCA, the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA or FD&C Act), and Dr. Engler will describe challenges that companies, especially those with cutting-edge chemical or biological technologies, face in navigating the regulatory waters.  The presentation will also touch on global regulatory regimes.  Join us and find out how regulatory considerations should be factored into green businesses’ plans to anticipate regulatory hurdles, ensure compliance, and avoid commercial delays or disruptions.


Webinar attendees may enter to win 30 minutes of related pro-bono regulatory consulting to discuss specific aspects of their business and their potential regulatory obligations.
