Import or Manufacture a Chemical? TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Due This Summer…

EPA’s Toxic Substances Control ACT (TSCA) Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) period is soon approaching. The CDR rule requires manufacturers (including importers) to provide information on the chemicals they manufacture domestically or import into the United States. EPA will use the information to determine the potential health and environmental risks of these chemicals. The report submission period is 06/01/2016 to 09/30/2016. This report covers the reporting period of calendar years 2012 to 2015.  Reports are submitted through EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX).

A review of the total quantity of each manufactured or imported chemical, as well as the composition of each chemical, is needed to determine if the reporting threshold of 25,000 lbs/yr (or 2,500 lbs/yr for TSCA action chemicals) is met.  Note that exemptions may apply.
