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.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
Hazardous Waste Professional
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!

The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
