Substantial Risk Information

TSCA Section 8(e) is a self-implementing statutory provision that states:

"Any person who manufactures, [(includes imports)] processes or distributes in [U.S.] commerce a chemical substance or mixture, and who obtains information which reasonably supports the conclusion that such substance or mixture presents a substantial risk of injury to human health or the environment, shall immediately inform the [EPA] Administrator of such information unless such person has actual knowledge that the Administrator has been adequately informed of such information."

The term "substantial risk" information refers to that information which offers reasonable support for a conclusion that the subject chemical or mixture poses a substantial risk of injury to health or the environment and need not, and typically does not, establish conclusively that a substantial risk exists.
