The EPA has proposed significant new use rules (SNURs) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for 4 chemical substances that were the subjects of premanufacture notices (PMNs) P-07-204 and P-10-58/59/60. EPA will take comments on the proposal until February 22, 2013. This action would require 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.
On September 21, 2012 (77 FR 58666), EPA issued direct final SNURs on these four chemical substances. EPA received notice of intent to submit adverse comments on the SNURs. Therefore, EPA removed the direct final SNURs, published December 31, 2012 (77 FR 76897), and is now issuing this proposed rule.
