ILTA, Industry Coalition Comment on CSB Reporting Rule

Jeff Weese 0 2274 Article rating: No rating

ILTA worked with an industry coalition to provide comments to Chemical Safety Board on its recent reporting rule. The CSB Reporting Industry Coalition asked that CSB consider an alternative approach to what they proposed that was included in the agency’s 2009 Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. That would allow CSB to continue to review media and NRC reports to identify accidents they want to investigate and then request the facility operators to report in greater detail on the incidents of interest. This would avoid CSB collecting nearly 2,000 reports annually and rather look in depth at a much smaller number of incidents each year.

PFAS are a large and diverse group of chemicals with unique properties that have been used in a broad number of beneficial applications for years. Heightened attention to potential health effects of certain PFAS has led to an increased public concern and interest in new regulatory protections in this area.

We understand these concerns and are committed to working with legislators, regulators, and all stakeholders to establish risk-based standards that protect human health and the environment. We also support the development of a consistent approach and clear timelines for assessing and regulating specific PFAS across all relevant federal agencies to ensure that government regulations, actions, and communications are coordinated for maximum effectiveness.
