EPA Comment Meeting on Algae and Toxic Substances Control Act

EPA will be hosting a public meeting entitled, “Opportunity for Public Comment on Algae Guidance for The Preparation of TSCA Biotechnology Submissions” at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ on October 27, 2016, immediately following the Algae Biomass Summit.

The objective of this meeting is to receive public input and comments on EPA’s algae guidance document in support of risk assessments of biotechnology products that make use of genetically engineered algae and cyanobacteria, which are subject to Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) oversight. The meeting will inform the development of EPA’s “Algae Guidance for The Preparation of TSCA Biotechnology Submissions” document.

EPA encourages all members of the public interested in participating in this meeting to register to attend. Due to space limitations, the Agency anticipates that approximately 120 people will be able to attend the meeting in person, with seating available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For registrants not able to attend in person, the meeting will also provide Web connect and teleconference capabilities.

More information is available on EPA’s website.
