EPA Proposes New Mercury TSCA Reporting Requirement
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, requires EPA to publish an “inventory of mercury supply, use, and trade in the US” once every three years. This reporting requirement will allow EPA to collect the data it needs from the regulated community to create this inventory.
The proposed TSCA reporting requirement would apply to persons who:
- Manufacture or import mercury or mercury-added products;
- Distribute or store mercury or mercury-added products;
- Intentionally use mercury in a manufacturing process.
The list of potentially affected businesses that may be required to report under the proposed rule is expansive and includes:
- Chemical manufacturing;
- Chemical wholesale;
- Paint and coatings manufacturing;
- Plastics and resin manufacturing;
- Surgical and medical instrument manufacturing;
- Hazardous waste treatment and disposal;
- Pesticides and agricultural chemical manufacturing;
- Electronics manufacturing
- Tire and rubber product manufacturing;
- Metal ore mining, metal foundries, and metal smelting
- Some metals refining and production; and
- Material recovery
