"Transfer Notice" Requirement

Various business needs may dictate the need to change the legal ownership or corporate identity of the chemical manufacturer , subsequent to EPA's processing of a TSCA section 5 notice, This can arise in many ways, including mergers, acquisitions, corporate restructuring, asset purchases, etc. EPA has developed the forms below to facilitate the process of having such transfers reported to, and accepted by, EPA.

"Transfer Notice" forms authorize successor rights and liabilities of manufacture of new chemicals subject to prior TSCA section 5 notices.

Since there is no pre-manufacture submission required for the polymer exemption after May 1995, no such transfer notice form is provided here. However, for transfers of polymer exemptions that commenced manufacture after May 1995, it is recommended that the successor should submit to EPA a new polymer exemption report per 40 CFR 723.250(f) by January 31 of the year subsequent to initial manufacture of the chemical substance by the successor.

(Due to their short-term nature, EPA views Test Market Exemptions under 40 CFR 720.38 as non-transferable; thus there is no form to transfer a TME.)
