Overview:

The usage and the import of asbestos are facing greater scrutiny today as pressures from several US states continue to emerge along with the call for a tighter regulation on public health risks. While the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final rule prohibiting most asbestos-containing products, some uses are still legal, including asbestos diaphragms, sheet gaskets, and other vehicle friction commodities. Moreover, in a report released by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), around 750 metric tons of raw asbestos was imported in 2018. This is the largest amount imported since 2013 despite the amendments made in the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) as well as other federal laws allowing only a “limited use” of asbestos.

Join a panel of key thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion on the recent trends and developments surrounding asbestos litigation. Speakers will also offer practical compliance strategies in this rapidly evolving legal climate.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Asbestos Litigation: Recent Developments
  • Demystifying the EPA Final Rule on Asbestos Import & Uses
  • Asbestos Regulations: Exploring TSCA and Other Federal Laws
  • Notables Cases
  • Practical Tips and Strategies
