Wiley Webinar Urging Firms to Audit PFAS Operations Draws Media Coverage

Inside EPA’s Inside TSCA
June 26, 2020

A Wiley webinar with Erik C. Baptist and Martha E. Marrapese, partners in the firm’s Environment & Product Regulation Practice, and Richard W. Smith, co-chair of the Litigation Practice, was featured in a June 22 Inside TSCA article on the likelihood of increased liability lawsuits under the Toxic Substances Control Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, and other laws. The Wiley program – “Legal and Business Considerations Every Company Should Know About PFAS Under TSCA and Beyond” – was part of Wiley’s 2020 TSCA Webinar Series.

The Wiley panel addressed the legal and business considerations that companies should be aware of regarding per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are listed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory.

Topics of the webinar included:

  • Auditing company operations for PFAS risks and liabilities
  • Legislation and recent plaintiff victories as causes for potential increased litigation
  • Possible EPA enforcement actions addressing PFAS under both TSCA and the Superfund law
