What is the Implication of the Proposed Rulemaking on Small Entities?
In accordance with the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 8(a)(7), EPA proposed a rule on June 28, 2021 to require reporting and recordkeeping from manufacturers (including importers) of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). This rule proposed to require certain persons who have manufactured (including imported) a PFAS at any time since January 1, 2011, to submit certain information to EPA related to chemical identity, manufacturing volumes, industrial and commercial uses, byproducts, disposal and other releases, and any existing environmental and health effects information.
