Lecturer Rick Reibstein named to EPA advisory committee
Rick Reibstein, lecturer in Environmental Law and Policy, has been named to the federal advisory committee established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to examine policy related to the Chemical Data Reporting rule of the Toxic Substances Control Act. The committee is for a negotiated rulemaking concerning Section 8(a) of TSCA, which requires chemical companies to report on where their chemicals are used. Negotiated rulemaking is a process in which representatives of stakeholder groups try to reach consensus on a proposed rule. Reibstein was proposed for the committee by the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable, where he serves as an at-large board member.
