The very factors that define emerging contaminants—lack of or evolving standards, poor detection limits, new exposure pathways—also introduce uncertainty into the risk assessment and regulatory requirements for these chemicals. Noted toxicologist Janet Anderson, Ph.D., DABT, of Integral Consulting Inc., will address the inconsistent toxicity interpretations and regulatory frameworks surrounding one particular class of emerging contaminants, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and she will discuss the litigation precedents.
Hosted by the State Bar of Texas, the 30th Annual Texas Environmental Superconference will be held August 2–3, 2018, in Austin, Texas. At 4:30 p.m. on August 2, Dr. Anderson will present on PFAS along with Sarah Wightman of Marten Law. Conference attendees can also earn continuing legal education credits.
A human health toxicologist and environmental risk assessor, Dr. Anderson provides toxicology expertise and consultation on emerging contaminants and federal and state environmental guidance and policies. She has developed risk management strategies to mitigate human health impacts and address associated environmental liability. In addition, Dr. Anderson tracks regulatory changes for emerging contaminants in the U.S. and internationally and has provided litigation support related to unregulated contaminants.
