Highlights That You Should Know

  • The 2012 Submission Period is scheduled to occur February 1, 2012 - June 30, 2012.

  • Production (manufacture or import) volumes are required for 2010 and 2011--- with manufacturing, processing and use information from 2011.

  • TSCA Form U impacts all chemical manufacturers and importers and certain chemical users and processors.

  • IUR is now called CDR “Chemical Data Reporting” Rule.

  • The CDR Rule includes significant changes.

Reporting thresholds are for (a) substances in cumulative volumes of 25,000 lbs or more in the specific reporting year (2010, 2011) and (b) processing and use information for substances manufactured (including imported) 100,000 lbs (not 300,000 lbs) or more in 2011.
