American Chemistry Council Petroleum Additive Panel Will Host a Webinar and Conduct a Survey for the Lubricant Oil Additives Industry Wednesday, March 11, 2015 from 3:00* PM to 4:00 PM Eastern __________________________________________________ An overview of EPA/ERG’s Voluntary Information Request and ACC PAP’s Effort to Provide Industry Data __________________________________________________ Background Information The American Chemistry Council’s Petroleum Additive Panel (PAP) welcomes your company to a webinar to learn more about the effort to create an Emission Scenario Document (ESD) on Lube Oil Additives. EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics is working with the OECD’s Task Force on Exposure Assessment to create the ESD on Lube Oil Additives, and the PAP is collecting relevant industry data to inform the process. Representatives from the EPA and its contractor Eastern Research Group (ERG) will attend the webinar to present an overview of the ESD document development process. Domestically, the ESD will be used for screening-level risk assessments of new and existing chemicals, especially in the premanufacture notice (PMN) process. The EPA/ERG has given industry an opportunity to provide relevant information to incorporate into the document; ACC PAP seeks your company’s input through the ACC PAP survey. The ACC PAP recognizes that providing EPA/ERG with current data and industry practices will help ensure that chemicals in the LOA industry are accurately assessed. The ACC PAP developed a voluntary survey to collect and supply industry information to the EPA/ERG. More details regarding the survey, which will be reviewed on the webinar, can be found on the following page. If you have any questions regarding this webinar please contact Colleen Stevens ([email protected] 202-249-6713). Please forward this invite to any other interested parties.
