TSCA Inventory Notification’s Active-Inactive Rule

September 25, 2017

On August 11, 2017, the Federal Register published the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory Notification Rule, requiring companies to report chemicals that have been manufactured (or imported) and processed in the US over the past decade. This data will allow chemicals to be classified as active or inactive in US commerce.

Companies will be given a 180 day reporting period to notify the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of chemicals and chemical substances on the TSCA Inventory that have been manufactured or imported for commercial purposes during the ten-year time frame (ending on June 21, 2016). All EPA notifications for manufacturers (including importers) are due by February 7, 2018, and all notifications for processors are due by October 5, 2018.

This rule will allow EPA to better assess chemicals still active in US commerce and implement procedures for evaluating chemical risks.

Further information regarding the interim list of active and inactive chemicals can be found here.
