Updated TSCA Chemical Inventory Includes Active Inactive Designations

Posted on 4/16/2018 by Roger Marks

TSCA-reporting.jpgFor the first time, EPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) chemical inventory includes information about which chemical substances are designated as “active” in commerce. The update comes after EPA required chemical manufacturers to submit a retrospective report of chemicals manufactured or imported between 2006 and 2016.

See the April 2018 TSCA Chemical Inventory.

EPA updates its TSCA chemical inventory roughly every six months.

How do TSCA Active/Inactive Designations Impact Chemical Manufacturers?

Section 10 of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety in the 21st Century Act, also called the Lautenberg Act or LCSA, required EPA to categorize chemicals on the TSCA Inventory as active or inactive. Designating chemicals as active or inactive should help US EPA better target its efforts to restrict or prohibit the manufacture or import of certain chemicals, when deemed necessary.

For chemical manufacturers, knowing which chemical substances are active is key to identifying whether another firm reported the chemical substance or if a “Notice of Activity Form A” is still required. The deadline for voluntary submission of Form A is October 5, 2018.

Any chemical not reported as “active” will be deemed “inactive.” Once EPA moves 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.
