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.

The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.

Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.

The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
