Addition of Nonylphenol Category; Community Right-To-Know Toxic Chemical Release Reporting: Final Rule Reply

Following is an update from the EPA Superfund, TRI, EPCRA, RMP & Oil Information Center:

On September 30, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a rule to finalize the addition of a nonylphenol category to the list of toxic chemicals subject to TRI reporting under EPCRA Section 313 (79 FR 58686). EPA has determined that this category meets the EPCRA Section 313(d)(2)(C) toxicity criterion based on available ecological toxicity data. EPA listed the nonylphenol category as a delimited category defined by a list of chemical names and Chemical Abstract Service Registry Numbers (CASRNs) rather than by a chemical structure. This final rule is effective on September 30, 2014, and shall apply for the reporting year beginning January 1, 2015 (reports due July 1, 2016).
