EPA Announces New SNURs for 27 Chemicals Under TSCA
Be confident you know your TSCA paperwork responsibilites! Join us live on October 18 for the TSCA: Chemical Reporting and Recordkeeping Webinar.
EPA lists all of the chemicals impacted by name, PMN number, and CAS number in the Final Rule.
For each chemical covered, EPA lays out mandatory criteria for businesses to use the chemical for the specific purposes covered by the rule. Any failure to follow the requirements in a SNUR constitutes a new use of the chemical and requires approval from EPA.
The new SNUR requirements take effect on October 16, 2018.
For some of the chemicals on the list, EPA simply requires submission of toxicity testing and/or monitoring data. For others, EPA requires PPE and respirators be used to prevent dermal exposure and inhalation, engineering controls to reduce worker exposure, and establishment of a hazard communication program.
Additional restrictions for some of the chemicals listed include limits for releases to the water, limits on the types of uses for the chemical (i.e., no aerosols or mists), disposal restrictions, requirements for manufacturing and use in an enclosed process. For some of the chemical substances, the SNURs go as far as to prohibit domestic manufacturing.
See all twenty-seven chemicals and SNUR criteria for each in EPA’s Final Rule here.

I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
Supply Chain Director
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.
Environmental Compliance Manager
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
