Join WHMA/IPC Quarterly Webinar Series on November 30th at 12pm CST to learn about the latest proposed rule from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the chemical phenol, isopropylated phosphate (3:1) (PIP (3:1)). This plasticizer and flame retardant may be used in wiring harnesses, cables, wiring sleeves, casings, and cords as well as in plastics, adhesives, and sealants. The EPA has proposed a prohibition on the processing and distribution of PIP (3:1) and articles containing PIP (3:1) because the chemical is a persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) substance. Processors and distributors will need to phase-out PIP (3:1) by October 2024, unless industry can make a strong case otherwise.
On this webinar, you will:
- Obtain a quick history of the recent rulemakings on PIP (3:1) under the EPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act
- Learn about an important request for information to gather data regarding the electronics industry’s uses of PIP (3:1)
- Learn about advocacy efforts to communicate with policymakers on behalf of industry
- Learn about broader advocacy efforts regarding emerging environmental policies relevant to WHMA members
