Advance Notice Requirement for Imports of 21 Chemical Substances Amended
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a final rule that, effective Aug. 31, amends the significant new use rules for 21 chemical substances. This rule will allow certain uses of these substances without requiring a significant new use notice and extend SNUN requirements to certain additional uses. It will also require persons who intend to manufacture (including import) or process any of these 21 chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant new use by this rule to notify the EPA at least 90 days before commencing that activity.
