§ 2607 - Reporting and retention of information
Title 40 published on 10-May-2017 04:28
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 40 CFR Part 716 after this date.
EPA is amending certain reporting requirements that were promulgated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to require the use electronic reporting. EPA is requiring the use of electronic reporting in order to minimize the paperwork burden associated with the underlying regulatory requirements and to minimize the cost to the Federal Government of the creation, collection, maintenance, use, dissemination, and disposition of information. This action will also improve the quality and use of information to strengthen decisionmaking, accountability, and openness in government and society, as well as provide for the timely dissemination of public information and in a manner that promotes the utility of the information to the public and makes effective use of information technology.
EPA is withdrawing the final Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 8(d) Health and Safety Data Reporting Rule that it issued on December 3, 2012. The health and safety data reporting rule would have required manufacturers (including importers) of cadmium or cadmium compounds, including as part of an article, that have been, or are reasonably likely to be, incorporated into consumer products to report certain unpublished health and safety studies to EPA.
This final rule requires manufacturers (including importers) of cadmium or cadmium compounds, including as part of an article, that have been, or are reasonably likely to be, incorporated into consumer products to report certain unpublished health and safety studies to EPA. The Interagency Testing Committee (ITC), established under section 4(e) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to recommend chemicals and chemical mixtures to EPA for priority testing consideration, amends the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List through periodic reports submitted to EPA. The ITC added cadmium and cadmium compounds to the Priority Testing List through its 69th ITC Report.
This document contains minor amendments to regulations under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide (FIFRA), and Rodenticide Act, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). These amendments will make EPA's regulations more accurate and user friendly with regard to the name of the EPA office that administers these statutes and various Agency addresses.
EPA is proposing to require electronic reporting for information that must be submitted under Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 4 (pursuant to test rules and enforceable consent agreements (ECAs)), TSCA section 8(a) Preliminary Assessment Information Rule (PAIR), and TSCA section 8(d) Health and Safety Data Reporting rules. Additionally, EPA is proposing amendments to certain TSCA section 5 reporting regulations that would extend electronic reporting requirements to Notices of Commencement of Manufacture or Import (NOCs) and support documents ( e.g., correspondence, amendment, and test data) relating to TSCA section 5 notices submitted to EPA before April 6, 2010. This proposed rule would require the use of EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX) and the Chemical Information Submission System (CISS) web-based reporting tool for the submission of forms, reports, and other documents except for TSCA section 5 submissions, which would use existing e-PMN software. This action is intended to streamline the reporting process and reduce the administrative costs associated with information submission and recordkeeping.
