At this month's meeting, Jim Okun discussed PCB regulations and how their evolution led to today's confused situation.
PCBs have gone from being principally a concern for electrical utilities and a few manufacturers to being a worry for much of the real estate community.
Topics will included:
- Yusho Disease,
- TSCA, and,
- The current emerging issue of PCBs in building materials.
Jim also discussed the difference between Risk Perception and Risk Assessment and whether PCBs in buildings pose a real health risk or more of a regulatory compliance issue.
