Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Environmental Protection Agency reports that a California company will pay a $45,000 penalty to settle charges that it failed to timely submit forms documenting its importation of large quantities of two chemicals.

Under the Toxic Substances Control Act, importers and manufacturers must submit chemical data reporting information to the EPA every four years for any of the more than 85,000 chemical substances on the TSCA Inventory that they import or manufacture at volumes of 25,000 pounds or more. The EPA states that such reporting allows it to track imported chemicals and assess their potential human health and environmental effects.
