The Environmental Protection Agency published a direct final rule updating the chemical identity listings for SNURs for 36 chemical substances which were the subject of PMNs.  This action identifies the specific chemical name and chemical abstract number in the modified SNUR, as this information is now publicly available.  Previously, in the Federal Register issue of July 28, 2009 (74 FR 37224), EPA issued a notice “TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory Update; Changing Certain Chemical Substances Identities from Confidential to Non-Confidential.”  This 2009 notice announced that the specific chemical identities of various chemical substances, including the 36 subject to the SNURs identified in this direct final rule, would be listed on the public version of the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory. 
Note that EPA is not changing the significant new use reporting requirements, the basis, or the findings for these SNURs. The SNURs will continue to require persons who intend to manufacture or process any of these chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant new use by these rules to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing that activity.
