TSCA Inventory Reset Rule Published; 180-day Reporting Period Begins

On August 11, 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the final TSCA inventory reset rule in the Federal Register, launching the 180-day reporting period for chemical manufacturers to submit chemical substance data under certain procedures by February 7, 2018; chemical processors have a deadline of October 5, 2018.

The report requires chemical facilities to provide information about the chemicals they have produced during the past decade. An estimated 1,600 chemical manufacturers and importers and another 100 chemical processors, which make paints, waxes, cleaning and other chemical-intensive products, are expected to file reports.
