The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) will sponsor this "Friday Forum" networking event and teleconference on December 7, 2012, from 8:30 am - 9:30 am, for local or visiting ACI Members, ABA Pesticides, Chemical Regulation and Right-to-Know Committee (the Committee) members and invited guests. ACI and the Committee collaborate on these Friday Forum opportunities to encourage ACI members, Committee Members and other key stakeholders to meet, discuss issues of mutual interest, and hear from other experts in the field on relevant issues.

The networking breakfast starts at 8:30 am, and the guest presentation and Q&A will begin at 9:00 am.

For the morning of December 7, our guest speaker will be Dr. Ken Olden. Dr. Olden is overseeing efforts to revamp the agency’s Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), which produces many of EPA’s most influential and sometimes controversial risk assessments. Industry has complained that the assessments are overly conservative, public health advocates have complained about delays, and last year the National Academy of Sciences issued a critical report outlining recommendations for improving IRIS. EPA's National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) is a leader in the science of human health and ecological risk assessment, a process used to determine how pollutants or other stressors may impact human health and the environment.
