A direct final rule amends the procedures for requests for modification or revocation of Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 5 significant new use notification (SNUN) requirements by establishing electronic submission requirements. The EPA issued a final rule in the Federal Register of Jan. 6, 2010, introducing electronic reporting requirements for TSCA section 5 submissions and all supporting documents. However, the regulatory text inadvertently did not include amendments to the reporting requirements for submissions of requests for modifications or revocations of SNUN requirements. This direct final rule includes the amendment that was originally intended by the EPA.
This direct final rule is effective July 26, 2011 without further notice, unless the agency receives adverse comment on or before June 27, 2011. If the EPA receives adverse comments on this action, the agency will withdraw the direct final rule before its effective date. The EPA will then issue a proposed rule and provide a 30-day period for public comment.
