Webinar: Forever Chemicals in California

July 7, 2022 @ 1:00 pm 5:00 pm

4 Participatory MCLE Credits

Please join us to hear from federal and California regulators and consultants on technical, legal and regulatory aspects of PFAS, also called “forever chemicals.”  Of the more than 9,000 known PFAS compounds, 600 are currently used in countless products for their stain and water repellant properties, including firefighting foam, cookware, cosmetics, carpet treatments, clothes, and even dental floss. Scientists call PFASs “foreverchemicals” because their chemistry keeps them from breaking down under typical environmental conditions. Federal laws include the federal Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, and regulations pursuant to those laws. California laws and regulations include the Health and Safety Code, Water Code, Prop 65, pending, Assembly Bill 2247, and others. California agencies with jurisdiction include CalEPA, the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water (DDW), Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), California Air Resources Board (CARB), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, municipalities, California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), and the State Fire Marshal.
