Issues Brought Up During BC-CM Producers Group Meeting Featured By Inside EPA Article

B&C Consortia Management

On January 13, 2017, slides from the B&C® Consortia Management’s (BC-CM) NMP Producers Group Meeting with the Office of Management and Budget were discussed in the Inside EPA article “Chemical Makers Cite TSCA Listing In Call For EPA To Drop NMP Proposal.”

[…] But representatives from Bergeson & Campbell on behalf of NMP producers in a Dec. 5 meeting with EPA and OMB officials ahead of the proposal’s release argued that the rulemaking does not appear to be consistent with the completed risk assessment and therefore may violate section 26 under the updated law.

NMP is used as an intermediate or a solvent in electronics, agricultural chemical, pharmaceutical, coating, petrochemical processing, and industrial and consumer cleaner sectors. The agency later last June indicated to industry that a supplemental risk assessment for NMP showed potential risk to consumers, according to industry slides presented by Bergeson & Campbell at the Dec. 5 meeting. [subscription required]
