I. Background Back to Top

The ITC was established by TSCA section 4(e) “to make recommendations to the Administrator respecting the chemical substances and mixtures to which the Administrator should give priority consideration for the promulgation of rules for testing under section 4(a)* * *. At least every six months * * *, the Committee shall make such revisions to the Priority Testing List as it determines to be necessary and transmit them to the Administrator together with the Committee's reasons for the revisions” (94, 90 Stat. 2003 et seq., 15 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.). ITC reports are available from regulations.gov (http://www.regulations.gov) after publication in the Federal Register. The ITC produces its revisions to the Priority Testing List with administrative and technical support from the ITC staff, ITC members, and their U.S. Government organizations, and contract support provided by EPA. ITC members and staff are listed at the end of this report.

II. TSCA Section 8 Reporting Back to Top

A. TSCA Section 8 Reporting Rules

Following receipt of the ITC's report (and the revised Priority Testing List) by the EPA Administrator, the EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) may add the chemicals from the revised Priority Testing List to the TSCA section 8(a) Preliminary Assessment Information Reporting (PAIR) or the TSCA section 8(d) Health and Safety Data Reporting (HaSDR) rules. The PAIR rule requires manufacturers (including importers) of chemicals added to the Priority Testing List to submit to EPA certain production and exposure information (http://www.epa.gov/oppt/chemtest/pubs/pairform.pdf). The HaSDR rule requires manufacturers (including importers) of chemicals added to the Priority Testing List to submit unpublished health and safety studies to EPA.

B. ITC's Use of TSCA Section 8 and Other Information

The ITC's use of TSCA section 8 and other information is described in the ITC's 52nd Report (Ref. 1).

C. New Request To Add Chemicals to the TSCA Section 8(d) HaSDR Rule

The ITC is requesting that EPA add the category of cadmium and cadmium compounds, including specifically cadmium and 103 cadmium compounds to the TSCA section 8(d) HaSDR rule. Cadmium and cadmium compounds are discussed in Unit IV. of this report.

III. ITC's Activities During This Reporting Period (December 2010 to May 2011) Back to Top

During this reporting period, the ITC discussed the draft TSCA section 4 proposed test rule, draft TSCA section 8(a) proposed reporting rule, and draft proposed TSCA section 5(a) Significant New Use Rule for nanoscale materials. In addition, the ITC discussed adding cadmium and cadmium compounds to the Priority Testing List and removing HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals and lead and lead compounds from the Priority Testing List.

IV. Revisions to the TSCA Section 4(e) Priority Testing List Back to Top

A. Chemicals Added to the Priority Testing List: Cadmium and Cadmium Compounds

1. Recommendation. EPA requests that the ITC add the category “cadmium and cadmium compounds” to the Priority Testing List to obtain use and exposure information on cadmium and cadmium compounds that are present in any consumer product.

Required information would be limited to unpublished health and safety studies, including those relating to the cadmium content in consumer products containing cadmium or cadmium compounds, and/or studies that assess exposure to cadmium or cadmium compounds from such products. Exposure studies include any studies providing information about the solubility, bioavailability, and duration of exposure to cadmium or cadmium compounds from product use.

2. Rationale for recommendation. EPA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are concerned with the content of cadmium or cadmium compounds in certain children's toys, jewelry, and other consumer products due to known toxicity and health concerns from exposure to cadmium or cadmium compounds. CPSC and EPA have limited health and safety studies on the content of cadmium or cadmium compounds in consumer products. EPA is recommending that the ITC include the category listing for cadmium and cadmium compounds described in this unit. This will provide both EPA and CPSC with a streamlined means of obtaining studies. Information obtained on this category may assist both EPA and CPSC in taking further action as appropriate to protect consumers from exposure to cadmium or cadmium compounds in consumer products.

3. Supporting information. The acute (short-term) effects of cadmium in humans through inhalation exposure consist mainly of effects on the lung, such as pulmonary irritation. Chronic (long-term) inhalation or oral exposure to cadmium leads to a build-up of cadmium in the kidneys that can cause kidney disease.

Cadmium has been shown to be a developmental toxicant in animals, resulting in fetal malformations and other effects, but no conclusive evidence exists in humans. Animal studies have demonstrated an increase in lung cancer from long-term inhalation exposure to cadmium. [1] EPA has classified cadmium as a Group B1, probable human carcinogen (http://epa.gov/ttn/atw/hlthef/cadmium.html).

Cadmium has been found in certain consumer products: In 2010, CPSC found the amount of cadmium in samples of children's metal jewelry ranged from about 0.03 to 99% by weight. CPSC also assessed potential exposures to cadmium by extraction testing, including using an acid solution to simulate the effect of stomach acid. The CPSC Staff found that potential exposure to cadmium would exceed the acceptable daily intake levels for acute exposure to a child. CPSC recalled 26 items of jewelry in 4 separate recalls and issued a warning about 2 additional jewelry items. [2] Cadmium was also found in the paint on glassware. CPSC issued a voluntary recall of 12 million “Shrek” movie themed collectable drinking glasses. [3]

Due to the potential health effects of exposure to cadmium or cadmium compounds, EPA and CPSC are concerned about the possible presence and bioavailability of cadmium or cadmium compounds in consumer products generally. However, neither CPSC nor EPA currently has complete information for assessing the safety of any other consumer products that may contain cadmium or cadmium compounds.

4. Information needs. EPA needs health and safety studies for assessing the extent and degree of exposure and potential hazard associated with these substances including: Epidemiological or clinical studies, occupational exposure and health effects studies, ecological effects studies, and environmental fate studies (including relevant physical chemical properties).

Specifically EPA needs studies about the total amount of cadmium or cadmium compounds contained in a product, the solubility and bioavailability of cadmium or cadmium compounds (including accessibility of cadmium or cadmium compounds to children and studies of the age and foreseeable behavior of children exposed to a product for children and/or children's toys), the foreseeable duration and route of potential cadmium or cadmium compounds exposure through contact with products, and studies on the marketing, patterns of use, and lifecycle of cadmium-containing products.

B. Chemicals Removed From the Priority Testing List

1. HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals. Two hundred seventy (270) HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals were added to the Priority Testing List in the 55th ITC Report (Ref. 2) and 5 were added to the Priority Testing List in the 56th ITC Report (Ref. 3).

Thirty (30) HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals were removed from the Priority Testing List in the 56th ITC Report. Eight (8) HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals were removed from the Priority Testing List in the 58th ITC Report (Ref. 4). Thirty-five (35) HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals were removed from the Priority Testing List in the 61st ITC Report (Ref. 5). One HPV Challenge Program Orphan chemical was removed from the Priority Testing List in the 63rd ITC Report (Ref. 6).

In this ITC report 29 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals are being removed from the Priority Testing List because they were included in the EPA's TSCA section 4 proposed test rule (Ref. 7). (See Table 3 of this unit.)

2. Lead and lead compounds. Lead and lead compounds were added to the Priority Testing List in the ITC's 60th Report to obtain unpublished health and safety studies that relate to the lead content of consumer products that are “intended for use by children” and studies that assess children's exposure to lead from such products (Ref. 8). At this time the ITC is removing lead and lead compounds from the Priority Testing List because the EPA has reviewed the unpublished health and safety studies submitted in response to the TSCA section 8(d) HaSDR rule (Ref. 9).
