Chemical Prohibition in Cables and Wires Impending: Learn More to Prevent Impacts to Your Products
Join WHMA/IPC Quarterly Webinar Series on November 30th at 12:00 pm 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
