The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2003 significantly amended the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Section 8(a) Inventory Update Rule (IUR), imposing substantial new reporting burdens. As a result, the next IUR reporting period in 2006 will be more difficult and time consuming than in years past. This column explains why, and discusses prudent steps to take now.

Key IUR changes

Every four years, manufacturers and importers of certain chemicals included on the TSCA Inventory are required to report current data on the output, production site, and site-specific information about these substances. The changes issued earlier this year markedly expand the types of information that must be submitted to EPA.
