Join us for Biocom’s Annual Roundtable with Mayor Faulconer
Biocom will be holding our Annual Life Science Roundtable Discussion with San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer on August 8th at 1:30pm at City Hall.

This roundtable provides a unique opportunity for member executives and policy professionals to discuss matters that are specific to our industry and/or your company, such as access to water and power, permitting and construction projects, and how the mayor can support the growth of the life science industry. This is also a chance for you to build a relationship with the mayor and his staff, and for him to understand the importance of what you do in San Diego. 

Seating is limited. If you have any questions or to RSVP, please contact Melanie Cohn at 858-832-4158 or mcohn@biocom.org.

Biocom to Co-Host EPIC+ Program Workshop with County of San Diego
The EPIC+ (Education, Process Improvements, and Compliance for Environmental Risk Reduction) program was created by the County of San Diego’s Hazardous Materials Division exclusively for life science facilities. 

For those who qualify, the program offers reduced frequency of inspections and reduced fees. Biocom and the county will host a training July 25th to share more information about the program, and to get feedback from current participants.

The seminar will cover common hazardous materials violations at life science facilities, updates to the Medical Waste Management Act, updates to the California Environmental Reporting System (CERS), and past hazardous materials incidents at facilities. Presenters include the County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health, Hazardous Materials Division Inspectors and Supervisors, Emergency Responders, and life science industry representatives.

This training will count toward your annual EPIC+ required training. Learn more and register here.
