How To Report Under CDR

This page contains instructions and guidance on submitting information to EPA for the 2020 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) period.

On this page:


Overview

The  CDR submission period is from June 1 to November 30, 2020.

For the 2020 CDR, the principal reporting year is calendar year 2019. Manufacturers (including importers) need to report full manufacturing, processing, and use information for 2019 only and production volume information for calendar years 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Reporting electronically: registration in the Central Data Exchange (CDX)

To submit Form U electronically to EPA, you must register with CDX and be approved by EPA. If you have technical issues or problems regarding CDX registration, please contact the CDX Help Desk at helpdesk@epacdx.net or 888-890-1995. International callers who wish to contact the Help Desk should call 970-494-5500.

  • Register on CDX: To register for CDR reporting, go to the CDX website and register under the program "Submissions for Chemical Safety and Pesticide Programs (CSPP)." If you were previously registered on CDX for e-TSCA, e-PMN, or TRI, you are able to add the CDR reporting flow to your current registration.
  • Access e-CDRweb: You can access this Agency-provided electronic reporting tool used to complete Form U after you have registered in CDX. Access e-CDRweb through the CSPP portal.
  • Complete and submit your completed electronic Form U.
