Advance Notice Requirement for Imports of 30 Chemical Substances Withdrawn

Tuesday, December 23, 2014
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Environmental Protection Agency has partially withdrawn an Oct. 27 direct final rule that would have imposed import restrictions on 30 chemical substances that were the subject of pre-manufacture notices. The rule was withdrawn because the agency received a notice of intent to submit adverse comments with respect to some of the significant new use rules included in that rule. The withdrawal affects the following chemical substances, for which the EPA now intends to publish proposed SNURs: functionalized carbon nanotubes (generic); propaneperoxoic acid, 2,2-dimethyl-, 1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl ester; fatty acid amide hydrochlorides (generic); fatty acid amides (generic); and fatty acid amide acetates (generic).
