Understanding the nature and application of regulations can often be a daunting task. The attorneys of Jardim, Meisner & Susser, P.C. are often called upon to help our clients navigate these murky waters.
Our interpretation and guidance of regulations cover a wide spectrum. We are particularly versed in FDA regulations. By way of example, we provided advice to a breath-spray manufacturer who used desensitized alcohol to ensure compliance with FDA labeling requirements. Our work has included assisting a company marketing children’s products to develop appropriate choking hazard warnings and ensure compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission and ASTM standard specifications. We have also researched and developed an analysis of the carcinogenicity standards of substances pursuant to:
- IRIS (EPA) – integrated Risk Information System
- ASTDR (CDC) – Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry
- IARC (WHO) – International Agency for Research on Cancer
- NIOSH (DHHS) – National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
- California Proposition 65
We have assisted in Occupational Safety & Health Act (OHSA) inspections and analyses, and provided historic compliance information with OSHA’s Hazard Communication Act.
Sometimes there is a need to investigate the nature and application of regulations as they existed at some prior point in time. We have the resources to provide such answers to our clients’ questions, and used such data in developing state-of-the-art defenses.
Our attorneys also provide clients with guidance on industry standard compliance, most notably related to NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) Codes and Standards.
We also provide insight into provisions of the New Jersey Administrative Code, and have used it effectively for our clients. For example, we used the definition of what it means to “practice dentistry” in the State of New Jersey in a professional disability insurance case. Our expertise in healthcare regulation has developed over many years representing medical professionals and healthcare providers in PIP arbitration matters.
