Free Webinar — PCBs in Caulk
NDA
November 13
1 p.m. EST – 2 p.m. EST


PCB's in Caulking has come to the national forefront for owners, managers, contractors and consultants. For years, this environmental dimension was rarely discussed and/or addressed as an environmental concern for parties that have some level of liability to identify, maintain, demolish, remediate and/or dispose of regulated caulking products.

In an effort to identify the regulatory requirements, assessment, monitoring and accountability methodologies, along with the liabilities for all of the parties that may be involved in a project, the NDA has convened a panel of experts that will: provide an overview of the PCB in Caulking Rule, discuss assessment procedures and work plan development, and identify some of the legal responsibilities and exposures that exist for all parties involved in projects where PCB's are encountered.
