The TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) deadline is August 13, 2012 (extended by U.S. EPA from the original deadline of June 30, 2012). In addition to chemical manufacturers, facilities that import chemicals should assess the applicability of the reporting requirements. A review of the Calendar Year 2011 total quantity of each imported chemical, as well as the composition of each chemical, is needed to determine if the reporting threshold is reached. Also, some facilities may need to contact their chemical buyers or brokers to see if they are handling the CDR reporting. If subject to reporting, facilities should build in time to have at least one facility representative certified to be able to submit the reports electronically via CDX.
