The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a call on April 16, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (EDT) on its recently announced plan to reduce burden for certain stakeholders subject to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) fees rule requirements for EPA-initiated risk evaluations. The call will cover:
- TSCA fees rule requirements and processes associated with EPA-initiated risk evaluations;
- EPA’s March 25, 2020, rulemaking announcement and “No Action Assurance” and the implications for certain manufacturers who: (1) import a high-priority chemical in an article; (2) produce a high-priority chemical as a byproduct; or (3) produce or import a high-priority chemical as an impurity; and
- Reporting obligations during the current comment period for the preliminary lists of fee payers, closing May 27, 2020.
EPA asks stakeholders to submit questions by April 14, 2020, to Ben Dyson, firstname.lastname@example.org, and EPA will address them during the call. Additional questions from participants will be answered during the call as time permits. Registration is now open.
