Aug. 12 — The Environmental Protection Agency will hold three webinars to help chemical manufacturers and importers understand their obligations for filing new chemical notices and related materials under a direct final rule the agency issued in July.
The EPA's webinars will be held Aug. 26, Sept. 16 and Sept. 30, the agency announced Aug. 12.
The final rule (RIN 2070-AJ98), published July 20, revised the software companies must use to file new chemical notices, called premanufacture notices (PMNs). The rule also expanded the types of new chemical documents that manufacturers and importers must file electronically (80 Fed. Reg. 42,739).
The rule, issued under Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act, will affect the procedures chemical manufacturers and importers use to submit hundreds of documents to the EPA annually.
The regulation will be effective Jan. 19, 2016, unless the EPA receives adverse comment by Aug. 19.
If it does receive adverse comment or notice that a party intends to file adverse comment, the agency would withdraw the final rule and republish it as a proposed regulation.
• the Aug. 26 webinar will discuss the process companies must use to register with the agency's Central Data Exchange (CDX) to submit TSCA Section 5 notices and supporting documents electronically;
• the Sept. 16 webinar will discuss the PMN form and related support form and joint submissions; and
• the Sept. 30 webinar will discuss filing notices of commencement, biotechnology information, bona fides and other documents.
