Advance Notice Requirement for Imports of Three Chemical Substances Withdrawn

Thursday, July 14, 2016
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Environmental Protection Agency has partially withdrawn a May 16 direct final rule that would have imposed import restrictions on 55 chemical substances that were the subject of pre-manufacture notices. The rule was withdrawn because the agency received a notice of intent to submit adverse comments with respect to three of the significant new use rules included in that rule.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); diisocyanato hexane, homopolymer, alkanoic acidpolyalkylene glycol ether with substituted alkane (3:1) reaction products-blocked (generic); and modified diphenylmethane diisocyanate prepolymer with polyol (generic).
