EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AJ43 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: TSCA Inventory Update Reporting Modifications 
Abstract: The Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule enables EPA to procure basic information on chemicals manufactured or processed for commercial purposes, resulting in a unique database that includes current production volume, manufacturing site-related data, and processing and use-related data for larger volume chemicals. This broad-based collection of manufacturing and use-exposure-related data provides basic information needed for risk prevention and management activities. The changes in the IUR Modifications rule are designed: (1) to tailor the information collected to more closely match the Agency’s overall information needs; (2) to obtain new and updated information relating to potential exposures to a subset of chemical substances listed on the Toxics Substances and Control Act (TSCA) Inventory; and (3) to improve the utility of the information reported. EPA believes that changing the information collected through the IUR, the method and frequency of collecting the information, and confidential business information (CBI) requirements will accomplish these goals. The major changes in the IUR Modifications Rule include: eliminating the upper threshold to collect processing and use data for all reported chemicals, collecting multi-year production volume information, returning the frequency of reporting to every 4 years from every 5, triggering reporting based on the annual production volume since the last IUR, and requiring electronic reporting. Other changes include modifications to specific data elements such as the production volume and types of industrial and commercial/consumer uses; requiring an indication of consumer or commercial use and, if commercial, the number of workers; changes to requirements for making CBI claims; migrating the regulatory text from 40 CFR 710 to 711; and eliminating obsolete regulatory text.
