EPA Releases TSCA Small Business Analysis, Extends Comments on User Fee Rule
Find out how major changes to the chemical management and reporting rules in the “Lautenberg Law” will impact your facility. The TSCA Regulations Online Course is updated to cover new rules and responsibilities and is available anytime, anywhere.
As amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, or “LCSA” for short, EPA has authority to charge fees and recoup up to 25% of the costs of collection, processing, review, and protection of chemical manufacturing and inventory data.
In the past, EPA was authorized to charge a maximum fee of $100 to a small business and $2,500 for other regulated entities. The LCSA removed the cap on fees and authorized EPA to define “small business” with respect to collecting TSCA fees.
How Will TSCA Fees Impact Small Business?
Today, under TSCA Section 5, a small business is defined as “any person whose total annual sales in the person’s fiscal year preceding the date of the submission for the applicable Section 5 notice, when combined with those of the parent company (if any), are less than $40 million.”
EPA is working to craft a new definition of “small business.” To that end, the Agency has released its supplemental analysis of different options under consideration.
See the supplemental analysis here.
Take the TSCA Regulations Online Course to find out what you must record, report, and keep on file to maintain compliance with EPA’s overhauled TSCA reporting and recordkeeping rules under the “Lautenberg Law.”
