EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK62 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Tiered Data Reporting to Inform Prioritization, Risk Evaluation and Risk Management Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) 
Abstract:

EPA is developing a rulemaking under sections 8(a) and (d) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to establish reporting requirements based upon a chemical's status in the Risk Evaluation/Risk Management (RE/RM) Lifecycle and update the reporting requirements under the 40 CFR 711 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) regulation. TSCA section 8(a) provides EPA the authority to require manufacturers and processors to report information known to or reasonably ascertainable by them including information on chemical identity and structure, manufacture, use, exposure, disposal, and health and environmental effects, and to maintain records of such information. Specifically, EPA is seeking occupational, environmental, and consumer exposure information. TSCA section 8(d) provides EPA the authority to require manufacturers, processors, and distributors to submit health and safety study information to the agency. EPA is developing this rule to obtain information about potential hazards and exposure pathways related to certain chemicals, particularly occupational, environmental, and consumer exposure information. This information is needed to inform prioritization, risk evaluation, and risk management of the chemical substances under TSCA section 6.
