GRSP Meetings

The Green Ribbon Science Panel meets as often as DTSC deems necessary, with consideration of available resources. The meetings are open to the public.

The Panel provides advice and acts as a resource to the Director of the Department of Toxic Substances Control and the California Environmental Policy Council on a variety of scientific and technical matters related to developing green chemistry and chemicals policy recommendations and implementation strategies.

There are no upcoming meetings at this time. Subscribe to the SCP mailing list to receive notifications for upcoming events.
