More Work Needed on Green Chemistry Regulations


GCA Committed to Green Chemistry Vision, Science over Ideology - Posted 12/02/10

 

  

Sacramento, CA - The Green Chemistry Alliance (GCA) today released a media statement calling on the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to remain focused on creating a science-based system of chemical management and to continue working toward the goals and vision if the state's Green Chemistry Initiative.  The GCA released its statement shortly before a group of environmental NGOs led by the CHANGE Coalition and the Sierra Club held a Press Conference inside the Capitol Building across the hallway from the Governor's office accusing the Administration of conducting a classic bait-and-switch scheme over the Thanksgiving Holiday and decrying DTSC's action on the revised Proposed Safer Consumer Product Alternatives (SCPA) regulation as an illegal violation of the Administrative Procedures Act and a sell-out to the chemical industry.

 

According to GCA's press release, "In mid-November, DTSC released revisions to the [proposed] regulations that sought to address flagrant shortcomings. . . While the revisions mitigated some of the most egregious problems in the proposed regulations, it is clear that more work remains to be done. In some key instances, the DTSC merely postponed critical problems created by the regulations rather than eliminate them."  The deadline for submitting comments regarding the revised proposed regulations is close of business Friday, December 3, 2010.
