EPA to propose significant new use rules to 17 chemical substances

WASHINGTON DC, US: EPA is proposing significant new use rules (SNURs) under the toxic substances control act (TSCA) for 17 chemical substances. Substances include rutile, tin, zinc, calcium-doped and rutile, tin zinc, sodium-doped which were the subject of premanufacture notices and TSCA consent orders issued by EPA. The proposed SNURs on these substances would designate as a significant new use. This action would require persons who intend to manufacture, import, or process either of the chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant new use by this proposed rule to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing that activity. The required notification would provide EPA with the opportunity to evaluate the intended use and, if necessary, to prohibit or limit the activity before it occurs.
