EPA Proposes Reforms to New Chemical Review Process Under TSCA

Public Comment Due by July 25th

The EPA proposed amendments to regulations that govern the review of new chemicals under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 

Read the Federal Register notice and submit a public comment by July 25

These amendments would update the regulations to: 

  • Include the five statutory determinations EPA must make for each new chemical submission;
  • Eliminate eligibility exemptions from the full safety review process for PFAS and other persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemicals; and
  • Make the new chemicals review process more efficient, including clarifying the level of detail needed in new chemical notices and amending the procedures for EPA’s review of notices that have errors or are incomplete.
