TSCA “reset reports” are due to EPA by February 7, 2018.
Under the so-called TSCA Reset Rule, manufacturers and processors must submit a one-time retrospective notice to indicate which of the 85,000 chemicals on the Inventory they manufactured or imported in a ten-year period from June 21, 2006 to June 21, 2016.
Section 10 of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety in the 21st
Century Act, also called the Lautenberg Act or LCSA, requires the EPA to categorize chemicals on the TSCA Inventory as active or inactive
To determine which of the 85,000 chemicals now on the TSCA Inventory remain active in commerce, EPA will require chemical facilities to submit the one-time report using EPA Notice of Activity, Manufacture, Import, or Processing—Form A. EPA has promulgated the rules for what is being called the “Inventory Reset” into 40 CFR 710.
On their website, EPA maintains list of chemical substances already reported under the TSCA reset rule
A list of chemicals exempt from the TSCA reset reporting rule
is available as well.
Any chemical not reported as being manufactured or imported in that ten-year period will be deemed “inactive” and separated out from the “active” chemicals. Once EPA has moved a listed chemical to the inactive list, any person planning to manufacture, import, or process the substance must notify EPA not more than 90 days prior to the anticipated date of manufacturing, importing, or processing.
