June Webinar - PFAS: Lessons learned during the evolution of global regulations
13 June 2019, 12-1pm EST
The public scrutiny and regulatory uncertainty associated with Per- and Poly-Fluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) can result in business and reputation risks for companies. Public awareness and demand for action related to PFAS releases in the environment is outpacing the ability of the scientific community to provide reliable data from which to make decisions.
In many regions, regulatory agencies are being driven to enforce action before sufficient scientific information can be collected to fully understand the problem. Deciphering the rapid flow of information, keeping on top of the ever-changing regulatory environment, and working under increasing public scrutiny can be difficult, at best. How then can companies proactively manage risk to reputation and environmental liabilities in this uncertain climate?
This webinar will discuss the evolution of PFAS regulations across the world, the rationale behind the development of compound specific advisory levels, and discuss lessons learned during these processes that can be applied to mitigate business and reputational risk to companies. The presentation will include a current snapshot of regulatory guidance within the US, Canada and other regions and a discussion on how companies can evaluate risk to their business and reputation.
Upcoming topics in this series:
- Game Changer: Implications of the Soil Pollution Prevention Law on Industrial Facilities in China
- Strategic Approaches to Portfolio Risk Reduction
- Vapor Intrusion: Regulatory Update and Emerging Issues
