EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK01 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: ●Response to Request for Exemption of Certain Food-Related Chemical Substances From TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Processing and Use Information Reporting Requirements in 2016 
Abstract: EPA received a petition from the Corn Refiners Association Coalition requesting that three food-related chemicals be exempted from the Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) processing and use reporting requirements in 2016. The chemicals include the following: 1,3-Propanediol (CASRN 504-63-2); Bentonite (Acid Leached) (CASRN 70131-50-9), and Palm Kernel Oils (CASRN 8023-79-8). The petitioners asked that these three chemical substances be added to the 40 CFR 711.6(b)(2)(iv) list of specific chemical substances that are exempt from the reporting requirements of 40 CFR 711.15(b)(4) (i.e., exempt from the requirement to report industrial processing and use and commercial/consumer use information). The chemical substances already included on this "partial exemption" list are substances for which EPA has previously determined that there is a low current interest in the CDR processing and use information. The inclusion of a chemical substance under this partial exemption is not based on the potential risks of a chemical. This partial exemption is based on the Agency's current assessment of the need for collecting CDR processing and use information for the specific chemical. In determining whether there is low current interest in CDR processing and use information related to a specific chemical substance, EPA will look to the specific circumstances surrounding the chemical in question and may use one or more considerations. EPA is developing its response to this petition, which may include rulemaking if EPA decides to grant the petition. The considerations used by EPA in reviewing this petition and an analysis of how those considerations relate to these chemicals will be addressed in EPA's response.
