TSCA Inventory Notification Published in Federal Register


Reading time ( words)

On August 11, 2017, the TSCA Inventory Notification (Active-Inactive) Rule published in the Federal Register. This reporting will be used to identify which chemical substances on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory are active in U.S. commerce.

Under the rule, manufacturers, including importers, have until February 7, 2018 to notify the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of chemical substances on the TSCA Inventory that were manufactured during the ten-year period ending on June 21, 2018.

It is illegal to manufacture, sell or use chemicals not listed on the TSCA inventory, so it is important that manufacturers and processors verify that all chemicals used in their manufacturing process are included in the Active Inventory. The rule contains a provision to allow processors until October 5, 2018 to notify EPA of substances that should be included in the Active Inventory.

EPA plans to host webinars to assist submitters this fall.

IPC submitted comments encouraging EPA to minimize the reporting burdens associated with the Inventory Update.
