So beyond chatting about formaldehyde in Tampa, I participated in a second panel on the Lacey Act with Cindy Squires of the IWPA and Amy Smith of the WWF (and she’ll be quick to tell you, that’s not the wrestling group!).
Our joint presentation is available here. It’s a pretty general review of the Lacey Act with a few updates and a great list of resources at the end.
One thing touched upon was the Young Living settlement. If you don’t know what that is, here’s another presentation you might want to grab. And you may also want to sign up for the IWPA due care training programs—there are four courses now, plus several webinars to come!
And a reminder that Friday is June 1st, and that’s TSCA Time!
