On Friday, November 2, 2012, EPA promulgated a direct final significant new use rule (SNUR) under section 5(a)(2) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for 20 chemical substances that were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMNs). Eight of these chemical substances are subject to TSCA section 5(e) consent orders issued by EPA. The remainder are "non-section 5(e)" SNURs. This action requires persons who intend to manufacture, import, or process any of these chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant new use by this rule to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing that activity.
