EPA Extends Deadline for TSCA CDR Reporting


Reading time ( words)

On September 19, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) posted a notice on the Chemical Data Reporting website that it has amended the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule to extend the 2016 submission deadline from September 30, 2016, to October 31, 2016.

Under U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, printed circuit board manufacturers who send byproducts, such as wastewater treatment sludge, spent etchant or spent baths, for recycling may be required to report under the CDR. Recently, IPC achieved a long-sought goal with the inclusion of a requirement for EPA to reexamine this rule passage as part of the of The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act amending TSCA.

According to the pre-publication version of the Federal Register notice for the final rulemaking, EPA granted the extension because of problems with certain the electronic reporting system that impact a business’s ability to submit within the required timeframe.

For more information, please review our CDR guidance and TSCA CDR website or contact me at FernAbrams@ipc.org or +1 (202) 661-8092.
