EPA amended the IUR reporting requirements in 2003, effective in the 2006 reporting cycle, which includes 2005 data. Completing IUR Form U will now be more complicated because exposure-related information is required, and because inorganic chemical substances are no longer exempt from reporting.
Preparing for the new IUR
Next year is fast approaching and chemical manufacturers should be examining their recordkeeping procedures to adjust to the changes the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) made to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory Update Rule (IUR). The data collection period for the 2006 report is calendar year 2005, so if you have not already reviewed these procedures, now is a good time to do so.
