EPA Sends TSCA Reporting NPRM to OMB

Yesterday the EPA sent a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Repairs (OIRA) for review. The NPRM would address changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Chemical Data Reporting requirements under section 8(a) and revise the size standards for small businesses under the act.

According to the Unified Agenda listing for the rulemaking, the EPA intends to have these changes in place before the 2020 reporting date. It also projected that the NPRM would be published in December 2018. Given the accuracy standards for Unified Agenda listings and the 35-day Federal Funding Fiasco, the EPA is just a tad late if they really intend to publish the final rule in time for that 2020 deadline.
