EPA Issues New TSCA Significant New Use Rules for 3 Chemical Substances
In a today’s Federal Register, US EPA finalized Significant New Use Rules for three chemical substances. The specific chemical substances covered in this EPA Final Rule are three very long chain chlorinated paraffins (vLCCPs) substances covered under PMNs P-12-539, P-13-107, and P-13-109.
What Is a TSCA Premanufacture Notice (PMN)?
Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), US EPA maintains lists of chemical substances manufactured in or imported into the United States. When chemical manufacturers plan to start distributing or selling a new chemical substance or product, they must submit a “premanufacture notice” (PMN) to alert EPA of their intentions.
What Is a TSCA Significant New Use Rule (SNUR)?
When manufacturing a known chemical substance—one for which the manufacturer has already submitted a premanufacture notice—for a significant new use, manufacturers must submit a Significant New Use Notification, or SNUN, 90 days before starting their activities. [40 CFR 721.5(a)(1)(A)].
The Final Rule is effective April 12, 2016. See the Federal Register for more details.

I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
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.
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
Environmental, Health & Safety Regional Manager
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
District Environmental Manager
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
