EPA is taking direct final action to amend the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 5 electronic reporting regulations. These electronic reporting regulations establish standards and requirements for use of EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX) to electronically submit premanufacture notices (PMNs), other TSCA section 5 notices, and support documents to the Agency. This rule provides the user community with new methods for accessing the e-PMN software, new procedures for completing the electronic-PMN (e-PMN) form, changes to the CDX registration process, adds the requirement to submit “bona fide intents to manufacture” electronically, and changes to the procedure for notifying EPA of any new manufacturing site of a chemical substance for which an exemption was granted by EPA. This action is intended to further streamline and reduce the administrative costs and burdens of TSCA section 5 notifications for both industry and EPA.
