Monona Rossol, industrial hygienist and founder and president of Arts, Crafts & Theater Safety, Inc., discusses the European Union's adopting new labeling and information systems and requirements for industry testing of chemicals before they’re used in consumer products. She'll look at why U.S. manufacturers resist chemical testing and provide such limited safety information. The United States will either have to adopt the EU's policies by 2012 or find our products banned from the European market.
