Announcement of Publication: Chemical Risk Governance –Doris Peters and Maren Rectanus are contributors to chapter on “Global data sharing”

This incisive volume of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Environmental Law offers a broad analysis of the foundations, main concepts, and substantive and procedural requirements of selected chemical law regimes as they pertain to the environment. Featuring contributions from more than 40 expert scholars and practitioners in the field, the volume focuses on chemical regulatory systems from representative jurisdictions, including the EU and the US, to provide a coherent overview of this expansive and often fragmented area of law.

Divided into five thematic parts, the volume first examines the fundamental concepts of chemical law, addressing topics including risk assessment, nomenclature, environmental justice and animal testing. Entries then discuss types of chemicals and exposures, regulation of chemicals in products and manufacturing, and waste and contamination, as well as covering liability rules as they apply to chemicals.

Doris Peters, General Manager at Consortia Management GmbH and Maren Rectanus, Project Manager at Consortia Management GmbH, contributed to chapter 12 on “Global data sharing”.

This volume will be an essential resource for scholars and students looking for a clear understanding of chemicals regulation and governance from environmental and public health perspectives at both national and international levels. Its insights into policy developments and liability issues will also be of interest to policymakers and practitioners.

The book will be published in March 2023 with ISBN: 978 1 78536 035 0.
