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).
US EPA today announced it has finalized new chemical reporting and recordkeeping regulations for chemical substances manufactured or processed as nanoscale materials.
US EPA has proposed a rule to “prohibit the manufacture, processing, and distribution in commerce of Trichloroethylene (TCE)” for certain uses. The proposed TCE ban is EPA’s first such action under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) as revised by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act.
Under the Toxic Substances Control Act, as amended this year by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, EPA is required to evaluate chemicals for potential risks to human health and the environment.
