Just when we thought that we may have identified all of the major environmental impacts that could affect us, along comes a new impact set in motion by market conditions. During the period of 2004 through 2007 there was a very high demand for drywall material that forced the importation of foreign drywall products which led to an environmental disaster of significant proportion. This seminar presents the current state of the art regarding the subject of Chinese Drywall. The science behind this disaster is in its infancy and regulatory guidelines are in the process of being established. This course will provide an introduction into what the consensus appears to be regarding the impact, assessment, control and remediation of Chinese Drywall. Liability and litigation appear to be driving solutions to the Chinese drywall problem. Current cases with the few decisions that have been rendered thus far are presented in detail.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
