  • On August 2, 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the long-awaited amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule. EPA has termed the new version of the IUR as the Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule. The CDR will, with certain limited exceptions, initially affect companies that manufactured or imported for commercial purposes 25,000 pounds or more of a chemical substance on the TSCA Inventory at a single site during calendar year 2011. The first CDR reporting period runs from February 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012. A copy of the signed final rule is available at: http://www.epa.gov/oppt/iur/pubs/Prepublication&under;IUR%20Mods&under;FRM&under;SIGNED&under;2011-08-01.pdf.
