Updates to Confidential Status of Chemicals on the TSCA Inventory
This page contains information on upcoming changes to the confidential business information (CBI) status of chemicals on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory.
In April 2021, EPA released a list of 390 chemicals by accession number expected to lose their confidential status and move to the public portion of the TSCA Inventory. The specific identities of these chemicals were reported as non-confidential during CDR reporting from the 2012, 2016, and/or 2020 reporting periods. In accordance with the CDR rule and with TSCA sections 8 and 14, EPA intends to update the TSCA Inventory listings for these chemicals to list the specific chemical identities on the public portion of the Inventory.
Stakeholders with interest, questions, or concerns about this change in confidential status may contact the EPA staff listed below no later than May 14, 2021. The specific chemical identities of these 390 chemicals are expected to be included in the next routine publication of the public TSCA Inventory, anticipated in late summer 2021.
