The Future of Pharmaceutical Waste Regulation
May 14, 2015
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

This dynamic area of waste regulation is fraught with questions: Is regulation of pharmaceutical waste necessary to protect human health and the environment, and is it cost effective? What should EPA’s new proposed rule look like? What would a new rule mean for government or private “take back” initiatives? What are the appropriate roles for the federal government, state and local governments, and manufacturers?  Join agency officials and representatives from various stakeholder groups as we tackle these and other tough questions.

Julia A. Hatcher, Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP (moderator)
Scott Cassel, CEO & Founder, Product Stewardship Institute
Dave Galvin, Manager, Hazardous Waste Management Program, King County, Washington
