Dec. 14 - DuPont to pay $10 million in record administrative settlement

Posted Date: 
Wednesday, December 14, 2005
Body: 

The violations resolved in this settlement consist of multiple failures by DuPont to report information about substantial risk of injury to human health or the environment by perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA. PFOA is used during the manufacture of fluoropolymers, which are used in common household products such as nonstick cookware.

DuPont will pay $10.25 million -- the largest civil administrative penalty EPA has ever obtained under any federal environmental statute -- to settle violations alleged by EPA over the company's failure to comply with federal law. Under the settlement, filed with the Agency's Environmental Appeals Board, Dupont is also committing to $6.25 million for Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs).

I am very satisfied with the work provided by Nexreg. The work has been through, timely and reasonable. Additionally, both Mike Harvey and Nazifa Beganovic are very knowledgeable. Mike and Nazifa's efforts have been an essential part of getting our MSDS program on track and positioned for the Global Harmonized System.
