On June 29, 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule under Section 8(d) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to require reporting health and safety data for 50 specified chemicals. The rule required the specified chemicals’ manufacturers and importers to report certain lists and copies of unpublished health and safety studies to the EPA by Sept. 27, 2021. Please refer to UL’s news article titled “U.S. EPA Requires Data on 50 Chemicals Added to TSCA Section 8(d)” for additional information.
