New Chemicals Program - Boilerplates for Orders under section 5 of TSCA
EPA will issue orders under Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in response to concern(s) identified during the review of a New Chemical Substance. The Agency has been using a standard boilerplate since 12-September-2016, which has been recently updated to make it easier for the regulated community and other stakeholders to understand the requirements of the Order. The updated version of the boilerplate is expected to be used for Orders starting in April 2020. Both the previous version and the updated version of the boilerplate are provided below.
