TSCA “Reset Rule” Reports Due Feb. 7
Section 10 of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety in the 21st Century Act, also called the Lautenberg Act or LCSA, requires the EPA to categorize chemicals on the TSCA Inventory as active or inactive.
To determine which of the 85,000 chemicals now on the TSCA Inventory remain active in commerce, EPA will require chemical facilities to submit the one-time report using EPA Notice of Activity, Manufacture, Import, or Processing—Form A.
EPA has promulgated the rules for what is being called the “Inventory Reset” into 40 CFR 710.
On their website, EPA maintains list of chemical substances already reported under the TSCA reset rule.
A list of chemicals exempt from the TSCA reset reporting rule is available as well.
Any chemical not reported as being manufactured or imported in that ten-year period will be deemed “inactive” and separated out from the “active” chemicals. Once EPA has moved a listed chemical to the inactive list, any person planning to manufacture, import, or process the substance must notify EPA not more than 90 days prior to the anticipated date of manufacturing, importing, or processing.

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!

I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
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.
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.
