Title: Nanoscale Materials; TSCA Section 8(a) Reporting for Nanoscale Materials 
Abstract: Under the authority of section 8(a) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA is developing a proposal to establish reporting requirements for certain nanoscale materials. This rule would propose that persons who manufacture these nanoscale materials notify EPA of certain information including production volume, methods of manufacture and processing, exposure and release information, and available health and safety data. The proposed reporting of these activities will provide EPA with an opportunity to evaluate the information and consider appropriate action under TSCA to reduce any risk to human health or the environment.
