Chemical Data Reporting (CDR)
Chemical Data Reporting
The Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Rule requires manufacturers (including importers) to submit information on the chemical they produce domestically or import into the United States during the principal reporting year. For the 2012 submission period, reporters provided 2011 manufacturing, processing, and use data and 2010 production volume data for their reportable chemical substances.
On February 11, 2013, EPA released the non-confidential 2012 Chemical Data Reporting information on chemical production and use in the U.S.
