EPA's Policy Regarding Notices Declared Incomplete Due to Chemical Identity/Nomenclature Errors

In its promulgation of the PMN rule amendments in 1995, EPA discussed its approach to dealing with chemical nomenclature issues in PMN submissions, and stated its intention to return notices declared incomplete by EPA as provided in 40 CFR Section 720.65(c)(1) due to failure to meet the nomenclature requirements found at 40 CFR Section 720.45(a).

In cases where problems arise that have policy implications, please contact Anna Coutlakis at 202-564-9207.
