Martha Marrapese’s Blog Post Featured in Coverage of Revised Risk Evaluation Draft

Inside EPA's Inside TSCA
December 4, 2020

A blog post authored by Martha E. Marrapese, partner in Wiley’s Environment & Product Regulation Practice, was highlighted by Inside EPA’s Inside TSCA in coverage of a revised draft risk evaluation for the pigment known as PV29. Ms. Marrapese’s blog post was published in the Wiley Environmental Law Line (The WELL).

As noted in the December 1 Inside TSCA article, Ms. Marrapese wrote that “conservative assumptions in the PV29 risk evaluation are not unique” – and if their use persists, “they will become the standard” for chemical risk evaluations conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the amended Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

“Historically, TSCA is systematic in the following sense – by doing chemical evaluations in the same procedural way with a consistent methodology, like parties are treated similarly and the appearance of unfair (or favorable) treatment of some over others is avoided,” Ms. Marrapese explained.

She also noted that four years after TSCA reform, “we are still in the early stages in the development of this program. Information and the right expertise remains a real need on the exposure side of the equation in these risk assessments.”
