EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AJ66 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: High Production Volume (HPV) Chemicals; Fourth Group of Chemicals 
Abstract: High production volume (HPV) chemicals are manufactured (defined by statute to include import) in the aggregate at more than 1 million pounds on an annual basis. This rulemaking effort, which is part of a series of rules for HPV chemicals, addresses what EPA refers to as the fourth group of chemicals identified under the HPV Program. In 2011, EPA proposed a test rule under section 4(a)(1)(B) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and a significant new use rule (SNUR) under section 5(a)(2) of TSCA for the fourth group of HPV chemicals identified under the HPV Program. The test rule proposed testing and recordkeeping requirements for 23 of the chemicals in this group. The specific testing may vary based on the data needs identified for the particular chemical to which it applies, but the data generally collected under the test rule would include: acute toxicity, repeat dose toxicity, developmental and reproductive toxicity, mutagenicity, ecotoxicity, and environmental fate. Data developed under this test rule would provide critical information about the environmental fate and potential hazards associated with these chemicals, which, when combined with information about exposure and uses, would allow the Agency and others to evaluate potential health and environmental risks and to take appropriate follow-up action. The proposed SNUR would apply to the other 22 chemicals in this group, and would require persons who intend to manufacture, import, or process the chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant new use by this proposed rule to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing that activity The notice required by the SNUR would provide EPA the opportunity to evaluate intended significant new uses and associated activities before they occur and, if appropriate, to prohibit or limit those uses or activities.
