TSCA Inventory Update: 40,655 Chemicals Active in US Market
To collect the chemical manufacturing and import data needed to make the “active/inactive” determination, EPA promulgated a Final Rule in 2017 to require chemical facilities to submit a one-time report on all chemicals manufactured or imported over a ten-year period (June 21, 2006 to June 21, 2016).
New to TSCA compliance? Join Lion for the TSCA: Chemical Recordkeeping and Reporting Webinar on March 19 to get a handle on the different chemical reporting programs for manufacturers, importers, and distributors.
February 2019 TSCA InventoryThe February 2019 update to the TSCA inventory shows that 86,228 total chemicals make up the current TSCA inventory. Of those, 40,655 are active in commerce (47%). The 40,655 includes more than 7,500 chemicals with identities protected as confidential business information.
The February 2019 TSCA chemical inventory is now available at EPA’s website. EPA updates the TSCA inventory about twice per year.
Manufacture/Import of “Inactive” Chemicals Under TSCAThe new active/inactive designations add a new consideration for TSCA compliance. Now, to manufacture or import a chemical, the manufacturer/importer must first check to see if the chemical is among the 40,655 designed as “active.”
If the chemical is designated as “inactive,” the facility must first submit a Notice of Activity (NOA) Form B to notify EPA of plans to reintroduce a chemical substance into commerce.

Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
Sr. Environmental Engineer
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
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Director of Safety & Env Affairs
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
Senior Environmental Engineer
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
