Challenges of regulating chemicals of emerging concern
from Bloomberg BNA
The processes for identifying chemicals of emerging concern (CECs) have evolved and can have broad and significant implications. Once those chemicals are identified, there are challenges that have become particularly acute as data are gathered at extremely low laboratory method detection limits that demonstrate the presence of man-made substances in water, often including the water we drink. This article describes the evolution from data gathering, to public concern and demand for answers, to potential regulatory action.
