Chemical Data Reporting Requirements for Inorganic Byproducts Meeting @ Ronald Reagan International Trade Center
Oct 25 @ 12:55 am – Oct 26 @ 1:55 am

EPA is announcing two upcoming meetings of the Negotiated Rulemaking Committee (Committee), which will be held on September 13 – 14 and October 25 – 26, 2017.  The September 13 – 14 meeting will take place at Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, Oceanic Suite, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004.  The October 25 – 26, 2017 meeting will be at the William Jefferson Clinton East (WJCE) Building, Room 1153, 1201 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004.  The public is invited to attend.

 

The objective of the Committee is to negotiate a proposed rule that would limit chemical data reporting requirements, under subsection 8(a) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), for manufacturers of any inorganic byproducts when such byproducts are subsequently recycled, reused, or reprocessed. This negotiation process is required by TSCA, as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. EPA believes the Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule is the only current reporting obligation under TSCA section 8(a) that is likely to affect the manufacturers of inorganic byproduct chemical substances.

 

Parties interested in requesting time for an oral presentation at the meeting should submit requests by email to ecdrweb@epa.govone week prior to the meeting date, in order to be placed on the list of public speakers. Written statements will be accepted throughout the advisory process; however, for timely consideration, statements should be supplied by email one week prior to the meeting date.

 

Information about the Committee, including information about attending Committee meetings and meeting agendas, will be posted to the Committee webpage:  https://www.epa.gov/chemical-data-reporting/negotiated-rulemaking-committee-chemical-data-reporting-requirements
