Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) – Making Sense of the Rescinded SNAP Rule
After the U.S. Court of Appeals revoked the EPA Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Rule 20, the status of the use of HFC propellants has been in a state of flux. Even with the recent denial by the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the appeal, the regulatory environment remains very uncertain. California has reinstated the SNAP rule restrictions via AB 1013 and several states have indicated an interest in pursuing similar prohibitions, while EPA continues working on a replacement SNAP rule using a different authority. The combination of all of this activity had led to many questions about which hydrofluorocarbon propellants you are able to utilize in your products and what actions companies should do to ensure compliance.
In an effort to address this uncertainty, Crowell & Moring is joining HCPA to host a free webinar to summarize the current status of hydrofluorocarbons in the U.S. and discuss the issues and concerns that you should be aware in order to ensure compliance.
The webinar is exclusive to HCPA members and due to the rapidly changing regulatory and legal environment will not be recorded.
