TSCA Section 5 Review Periods Extended Due to Shutdown
Be confident you know your TSCA paperwork responsibilities! Join us live on March 19 for the TSCA: Chemical Reporting and Recordkeeping Webinar.
The extension will impact TSCA Section 5 notifications that were submitted to EPA before December 29, 2018, for which the review period had not expired as of December 29, 2018. EPA’s extension of the review period will also extend the period before manufacturing or processing of the chemical substances subject to these reviews may begin.
TSCA Section 5 Notices affected include:
- Premanufacture notices (PMN),
- Significant New Use Notices (SNUN),
- Microbial Commercial Activity Notices (MCAN), and
- Exemption notices.
EPA fully resumed its TSCA work on January 31, 2019. The extension period is 33 days long, equaling the time EPA lost during the government shutdown. EPA reserves the right to further extend additional individual cases for a total of up to 90 days.
EPA is authorized by TSCA Section 5(c) to unilaterally extend the notice review period for PMNs, MCANs, and SNUNs.

Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
As always, Lion never disappoints
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.
