EPA is removing significant new use rules (SNURs) promulgated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for chemical substances identified as alkanes, C21-34—branched and linear, chloro; alkanes, C22-30—branched and linear, chloro; and alkanes, C24-28, chloro, which were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMNs) P-12-539, P-13-107, and P-13-109, respectively. EPA published these SNURs using direct final rulemaking procedures. EPA received a notice of intent to submit adverse comments on the rules. Therefore, the Agency is removing these SNURs, as required under the expedited SNUR rulemaking process. EPA intends to publish in the near future proposed SNURs for these three chemical substances under separate notice and comment procedures.
