Title: ●Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals; Chemical Information Reporting Under TSCA Section 8(a) and Health and Safety Data Reporting Under TSCA Section 8(d) 
Abstract: EPA is developing an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) and intends to initiate a stakeholder process to provide input on the design and scope of possible reporting under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). EPA anticipates that States, industry, public interest groups and members of the public will be participants in the stakeholder process. The stakeholder process will bring stakeholders together to discuss the information needs and potential reporting under TSCA. As EPA considers potential reporting under TSCA, EPA intends to seek input from the stakeholders to help ensure reporting burdens and costs are minimized, and that information already available is considered in order to avoid duplication of efforts.
