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.
