CICC Comments on Safer Consumer Products Reg


“it would undermine the incentive to innovate” - Posted 9/10/12

 

  

Tom Jacob, CICC Sr. Consultant/Lobbyist, presented comments during a DTSC public hearing, critical of the newly proposed Safer Consumer Products regulation.  According to Jacob, "Many in industry supported Green Chemistry laws in 2008 [including CICC] . . . The vision was a systematic effort to filter through the myriad of chemical and product combinations to identify and focus upon those specific ones where the chemistry is not being properly managed - to then isolate on those posing the greatest threat, and compel systematic application of green chemistry. . . .

 

This regulatory proposal, however, upends that. . . and seems driven by the potential for "unintended consequences" . . In the process it threatens the most significant unintended consequence of all: it would undermine the incentive to innovate by limiting the opportunity to safely harness the properties of the natural world around us."  Read Complete Statement
