An advisory committee convened by Congress to help US EPA simplify chemical data reporting requirements under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has announced four main goals in advance of its September meeting.
In order to determine which of the roughly 85,000 chemicals on the TSCA Inventory are still “active” in commerce, US EPA today promulgated a Final Rule to require chemical facilities to report on chemicals manufactured or imported over a ten-year period between June 21, 2006 and June 21, 2016.
EPA's TSCA regulations at 40 CFR 749 apply to any person using hexavalent chromium-based water treatment chemicals as well as any person who distributes hexavalent chromium-based water treatment chemicals for use in such systems.
US EPA last week posted two Final Rules to the Federal Register that describe how the Agency will carry out its responsibilities for prioritizing and evaluating chemical substances as required under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act.
US EPA has announced the availability of documents that lay out the scope of the risk evaluations EPA will perform on the first 10 chemicals identified for evaluation under TSCA, as revised by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (“The Lautenberg Law”).
Under the new Final Rule, EPA will require chemical manufacturers and importers to submit a “retrospective electronic notification” for all chemicals manufactured or imported over a ten-year period—from June 21, 2006 to June 21, 2016.
In the Federal Register on Friday, May 12, US EPA announced it will delay the effective date of its new TSCA reporting and recordkeeping requirements for nanoscale materials until August 14, 2017.
In an executive order issued on January 20, the President of the US directed Federal agencies to delay the effective date of new regulations for sixty days. Sixty days later, US EPA has elected to further delay the implementation date for certain new rules.
For the second time in six months, EPA in January raised its fines for noncompliance with major environmental programs. We hope that providing information about EPA enforcement cases will help you identify and fix noncompliance issues that could leave your company facing costly penalties and future liability.
To determine which TSCA inventory chemicals are active and which are inactive, US EPA has proposed a “retrospective electronic notification” for chemicals manufactured/imported between June 2006 and June 2016 (approximately).
