Posted on 2/12/2016 by Roger Marks

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.

TSCA Chemical substances

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.
