EPA Proposes Significant New Use Rules Under TSCA for 19 Chemicals

Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 12/5/19 5:00 PM

On December 5, 2019, in a draft Federal Register Notice (FRN), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed significant new use rules (SNURs) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for nineteen chemicals.  This would require notifying the EPA at least 90 days before beginning any manufacturing or processing for the SNUR.

The affected chemicals include:

  • Soybean meal, reaction products with phosphoric trichloride;
  • Halogenated sodium benzoate (generic);
  • Substituted polyalkylenepoly, reaction products with alkene polymer (generic).

The FRN is scheduled to be published December 6, 2019, and comments on the proposed SNURs are due January 6, 2020.

Details on applicability and processing requirements can be found in the FRN:
