On July 12, 2007, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published in the Federal Register three separate notices related to the long-awaited Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program (NMSP) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). See 72 Fed. Reg. 38,079-38,085 (July 12, 2007). . The first notice announces the availability of, and solicits public comment on, EPA’s proposed Information Collection Request (ICR) under the Paperwork Reduction Act, including the draft form that NMSP participants would use to submit data to EPA; the second announces an Aug. 2, 2007 public meeting on the NMSP; and the third announces the availability of, and seeks public
comment on, two draft documents: the “Concept Paper for the Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program under TSCA” (NMSP Concept Paper); and the “TSCA Inventory Status of Nanoscale Substances—General Approach” (TSCA Inventory Paper). The latter document addresses an issue of significant interest to TSCA practitioners, namely the regulatory status under TSCA of existing nanoscale materials that consist of chemical substances listed on the TSCA Inventory. Written comments on these documents, as well as on the ICR, must be submitted to EPA no later than September 10, 2007.
