TRFA Webinar: What to Expect in New EPA Chemical Data Reporting Rule
Glen Ellyn, IL- The Thermoset Resin Manufacturers Association (TRFA) is pleased to announce an important new webinar offering industry leaders a timely look at "What to Expect in the New EPA Chemical Data Reporting Rule (formerly IUR)," presented by Thomas G. Grumbles, CIH, Senior Consultant, Product Safety and Compliance, Cardno ENTRIX. This important industry education event is scheduled for Thursday, December 15, 2011, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon EST. Additional information and registration is available at the TRFA website, www.trfa.org.
On August 2, 2011, the EPA announced it is amending the reporting requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule and changing its name to the Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule. The new rule raises the bar for chemical information reporting under TSCA, and will create some formidable compliance challenges for businesses subject to its provisions. Those who must comply with this new ruling include chemical substance manufacturers and importers and chemical substance users and processors who manufacture a byproduct chemical substance. This webinar will provide an overview of the new rule, highlight some of the rule's more nuanced provisions, and offer some guidance on how best to respond to it.
EPA's significant amendment to TSCA involves changes to 2012 reporting, 2016 reporting and future reporting cycles. The method of reporting and reporting thresholds have changed, information to be reported has increased and some definitions impacting overall obligations have been modified or added.
This webinar will review:
1. The new reporting obligations with some discussion of the changes
2. Reporting timeframes
3. Reporting methods through the e-CDR software
4. General advice on preparing for the reporting now and for 2016
Anyone involved with Product Safety and Compliance or Product Stewardship at Formulator and Supplier Companies is encouraged to attend.
