Highlights

May 14, 2012 -- EPA partially withdrew a direct final rule issued last March revoking certain test requirements for 10 chemicals. Because EPA received an adverse comment regarding one of the 10 chemicals, C.I. Pigment Blue 61, it has withdrawn and is re-proposing the revocation for C.I. Pigment Blue 61. The comment period for the proposed rule will be open until June 13, 2012. This action does not affect the revocation of test requirements for the other nine chemicals that were subject to the direct final rule issued last March.

October 1984 - May 2012
