The Department of Labor recently rescinded a policy denying most claims after 1995 based on the assumption that chemical exposure decreased that year. The former policy was established in 2014 by Circular No 15-06. Thanks to the recommendation by the Advisory Board on Toxic Substances and Worker Health, the policy was rescinded. This is one of many changes the Advisory Board has assisted in changing.
