Title: Reporting and Recordkeeping for Perfluoroalkyl or Polyfluoroalkyl Substances Under Section 8(a)(7) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) 
Abstract:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing a proposed rule to establish reporting and recordkeeping requirements for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) under section 8(a)(7) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). TSCA section 8(a) authorizes EPA to collect information about chemical uses, production volumes, disposal, exposures, and hazards. In accordance with obligations under TSCA section 8(a), as amended by section 7351 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020, persons that manufacture (including import) or have manufactured these chemical substances in any year since January 1, 2011 would be subject to the reporting and recordkeeping requirements. In addition to fulfilling statutory obligations under TSCA, EPA expects that the proposed rule would enable EPA to better characterize the sources and quantities of manufactured PFAS in the United States.
