I. Background

The ITC was established by section 4(e) of TSCA “to make recommendations to the Administrator respecting the chemical substances and mixtures to which the Administrator should give priority consideration for the promulgation of a rule 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” (Public Law 94-469, 90 Stat. 2003 et seq., 15 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.). Since its creation in 1976, the ITC has submitted 48 semi-annual (May and November) reports to the EPA Administrator transmitting the Priority Testing List and its revisions. ITC reports are available from the ITC's web site (http://www.epa.gov/​opptintr/​itc) within a few days of submission to the Administrator and from http://www.epa.gov/​fedrgstr after publication in the Federal Register. The ITC meets monthly and 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

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) promulgates TSCA section 8(a) PAIR and TSCA section 8(d) Health and Safety Data Reporting (HaSDR) rules for chemicals added to the Priority Testing List. The PAIR rule requires producers and importers of Chemical Abstract Service (CAS)-numbered chemicals added to the Priority Testing List to submit production and exposure reports under TSCA section 8(a). The HaSDR rule requires producers, importers and processors of all chemicals (including those with no CAS numbers) added to the Priority Testing List to submit unpublished health and safety studies under TSCA section 8(d) that must be in compliance with the revised HaSDR rule (63 FR 15765, April 1, 1998) (FRL-5750-4). All submissions must be received by the EPA within 90 days of the reporting rules Federal Register publication date. The reporting rules are automatically promulgated by OPPT unless otherwise requested by the ITC. It is an ITC policy, for most chemicals that are added to the Priority Testing List, to delay automatic promulgation of HaSDR rules to allow voluntary submission of studies of specific interest (see Unit II.C. of this Report for further details).

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

The ITC reviews the TSCA section 8(a) PAIR rule reports, TSCA section 8(d) HaSDR rule studies and other information that becomes available after the ITC adds chemicals to the Priority Testing List. Other information includes: TSCA section 4(a) and 4(d) studies; TSCA section 8(c) submissions; TSCA section 8(e) “substantial risk” notices; “For Your Information” (FYI) submissions; ITC voluntary submissions; unpublished data submitted to and from U.S. Government organizations represented on the ITC; and published papers, as well as use, exposure, effects, and persistence data that are voluntarily submitted to the ITC by manufacturers, importers, processors, and users of chemicals recommended by the ITC. The ITC reviews this information and determines if data needs should be revised, if chemicals should be removed from the Priority Testing List or if recommendations should be changed to designations.

C. Promoting More Efficient Use of Information Submission Resources

To promote more efficient use of information submission resources, the ITC developed the Voluntary Information Submissions Policy (VISP). The VISP provides examples of data needed by ITC Member U.S. Government organizations, examples of studies that should not be submitted, the milestones for submitting information, guidelines for using the TSCA Electronic HaSDR Form and instructions for electronically submitting full studies. The TSCA Electronic HaSDR Form can be used to provide information electronically on ITC voluntary submissions, TSCA section 8(d) studies, FYI submissions, and TSCA section 8(e) studies. VISP is Start Printed Page 10301described in the ITC's 41st Report (63 FR 17658, April 9, 1998) (FRL-5773-5) and is accessible through the world wide web (http://www.epa.gov/​opptintr/​itc/​visp.htm). To facilitate the implementation of VISP, the ITC developed the Voluntary Information Submissions Innovative Online Network (VISION). VISION is described in the ITC's 42nd Report (63 FR 42554, August 7, 1998) (FRL-5797-8) and is accessible through the world wide web (http://www.epa.gov/​opptintr/​itc/​vision.htm). VISION includes the VISP and links to the TSCA Electronic HaSDR Form (http://www.epa.gov/​opptintr/​.er/​hasd.htm) including revised section 3.2 of the TSCA Electronic HaSD Reporting Form to provide more use and exposure information (see the ITC's 46th Report for details; 65 FR 75552, December 1, 2000) (FRL-6594-7).

The ITC requests that chemical producers, importers, processors, and users provide information electronically via VISION on chemicals for which the ITC is soliciting voluntary information. To enhance visibility, the ITC will be adding all chemicals to the Priority Testing List for which it is soliciting voluntary information. If the ITC does not receive voluntary information submissions to meet its data needs according to the procedures in VISP, the ITC may then request that EPA promulgate the appropriate TSCA sections 8(a) and 8(d) reporting rules to determine if there are unpublished data to meet those needs. The ITC requests that those companies responding to a TSCA section 8(d) HaSDR rule, provide data by using the TSCA Electronic HaSDR Form.

D. Coordinating Information Requests

To avoid duplicate reporting, the ITC carefully coordinates its information solicitations and reporting requirements with other national and international testing programs, e.g., the National Toxicology Program, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Screening Information Data Set (SIDS) program and the EPA's High Production Volume (HPV) Challenge. The ITC is currently focusing its efforts on persistent non-HPV chemicals that have exposure potential, but few, if any, publicly available ecological or health effects data. The ITC is working with the EPA's Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxics (PBT), Endocrine Disruption and perfluoroctylsulfonate chemicals workgroups to identify data-poor, potentially toxic chemicals to complement the objectives of those programs.

E. Requests to Promulgate TSCA Section 8(a) Preliminary Assessment Information Reporting (PAIR) and Section 8(d) (HaSDR) Rules

In its 47th Report, the ITC asked the EPA to add 8 nonylphenol polyethoxylate degradation products to the TSCA section 8(a) PAIR rule (66 FR 17768, April 4, 2001) (FRL-6763-6). Since that Report the ITC has obtained additional information on these chemicals from the EPA and the Alkylphenols & Ethoxylates Research Council (APERC).

At this time, the ITC is rescinding its request to add 8 nonylphenol polyethoxylate degradation products to the TSCA section 8(a) PAIR rule, because:

1. No production or importation volumes for any of the 8 nonylphenol polyethoxylate degradation products were reported to EPA in response to the 1986, 1990, 1994, or 1998 Inventory Update Rules (IURs) and

2. A November 14, 2000, letter from APERC stated that none of the 8 nonylphenol polyethoxylate degradation products have been or are being manufactured or processed for commercial purposes (Ref . 1, APERC, 2000). The 8 nonylphenol polyethoxylate degradation products are listed in Table 2.

* Names following the semicolon are TSCA-preferred names.

At this time, the ITC is requesting that EPA not promulgate a TSCA section 8(d) HaSDR rule for stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]-. The ITC is making this request to allow ORTEP and the producers, importers, processors, and users of stannane, dimethylbis [(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- an opportunity to voluntarily provide the requested information (see Units III. and IV. of this Report).

III. ITC's Activities During this Reporting Period (May to October 2001)

A. Continued Review of Degradation Effects Bioconcentration Information Testing Strategies (DEBITS) Chemicals

In its 45th through 48th Reports, the ITC described its strategies to screen and evaluate chemicals with persistence and bioconcentration potential. These activities are referred to as DEBITS. DEBITS provides a means to prioritize chemicals for information reporting and testing based on degradation and bioconcentration potential and availability of effects data.

During this reporting period, the ITC continued to implement DEBITS by reviewing moderate production volume (MPV) chemicals (production or importation volumes between 100,000 and 1,000,000 pounds) with estimated or measured bioconcentration factors (BCFs) > 250 and structurally related non-MPV chemicals. The ITC reviewed 95 chemicals during this reporting period including 48 chemicals for which information was solicited from manufacturers and trade associations (Table 3).

The ITC reviewed information on the chemicals in Table 3 from the Color Pigments Manufacturers Association (CPMA) and the Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD) and the companies that were previously or are currently manufacturing these chemicals. The ITC learned that many low production volume (LPV) chemicals (production/importation volumes between 10,000 and 100,000 pounds) were no longer produced or imported. Some of the chemicals are still produced but only used as chemical intermediates. Because of limited production or use, the ITC is not requesting additional information for 46 of these 48 chemicals, at this time.

However, the ITC is continuing to review information for 2 of these 48 chemicals, 2,9-dimethylquinacridone or quino[2,3-b]acridine-7,14-dione, 5,12-dihydro-2,9-dimethyl- (CAS No. 980-26-7) and stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- (CAS No. 68928-76-7) (Table 3). The ITC requested additional information on 2,9-dimethylquinacridone from CPMA and ETAD and is adding stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- to the Priority Testing List (see Unit IV. of this Report).

The ITC reviewed 47 other chemicals satisfying the DEBITS criteria listed in the 45th ITC Report published in the Federal Register of December 1, 2000 (65 FR 75544) (FRL-6399-5). It was determined that there is a substantial amount of health and ecological effects data available for 6 chemicals (Table 4). There is testing being planned under EPA's HPV Challenge or the OECD SIDS program for 5 chemicals (Table 5). There was no production or importation volumes reported to EPA in response to the 1998 IUR for 36 chemicals with bioconcentration potential (Table 6). The ITC is not requesting additional information on these 47 chemicals, at this time.

B. Information Solicitations: Perfluorinated Alcohols, Esters, Iodides, Acids, and Salts

On May 25, 2000, the ITC delivered its 46th Report to the EPA Administrator and solicited use, exposure, environmental fate, health effects, and ecological effects information on 50 perfluorinated chemicals (65 FR 75552, December 1, 2000) (FRL-6594-7) that were identified during the implementation of DEBITS. Since then the EPA has convened several public meetings to discuss chemicals containing perfluorooctyl sulfonates (PFOS) and proposed a significant new use rule (SNUR) under TSCA section 5(a)(2) for 90 chemical substances, including: Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOSA) and certain of its salts (PFOSS), perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride (PFOSF), certain higher and lower homologues of PFOSA and PFOSF, and certain other chemical substances, including polymers, that contain PFOSA and its homologues as substructures (65 FR 62319, October 18, 2000) (FRL-6745-5). All of these chemical substances were referred to collectively as PFOS in this proposed rule.

The EPA and other U.S. Government organizations represented on the ITC are continuing to evaluate perfluorinated chemicals. Consequently, the ITC in cooperation with the EPA identified 17 additional perfluorinated chemicals, not named in the ITC's 46th Report, the EPA's SNUR or the EPA's HPV Challenge, that are possible replacements for some uses of PFOS-containing chemicals. These 17 perfluorinated chemicals had production volumes greater than 10,000 pounds, but less than 1 million pounds (based on 1998 IUR, non-CBI data). The 17 additional perfluorinated chemicals are listed in Tables 7-10.

The ITC needs use, exposure, health effects, ecological effects, and bioconcentration information for the 17 perfluorinated chemicals in Tables 7-10 to address the data needs of U.S. Government member organizations.

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

A. Chemicals Added to the Priority Testing List: Stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]-

1. Recommendation. Stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- (CAS No. 68928-76-7) is being recommended to obtain data on use, exposure, environmental fate, health effects, and ecological effects data.

2. Rationale for recommendation. Stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- is a MPV chemical that is predicted to persist and bioconcentrate; the estimated BCF is 8,600. The 1998 IUR indicates that 100,000 to 1,000,000 pounds of stannane, dimethylbis [(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- were produced or imported in the United States but the ITC has no use and exposure information. A recent TSCA section 8(e) submission reported a rat oral LD50 of 894 milligram/kilogram (mg/kg) body weight (Ref. 2, Crompton Corporation, 2001). Signs of toxicity, including neurotoxic effects, were observed in this rat oral gavage study. The ITC has no other effects data and no environmental fate data, including no data on hydrolysis rates or products.

3. Supporting information. Organotin compounds as a broad class have an abundance of health and ecological effects data. Though the types of effects vary among different organotins, immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity and developmental and reproductive effects have been observed in mammalian studies. The ITC is aware that the Organotin Environmental Program (ORTEP) has proposed to conduct tests on several organotin compounds under the EPA's HPV Challenge. However, stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]-, a MPV chemical was not included in that program. As noted above, stannane, dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]- has a rat oral LD50 of 894 mg/kg body weight. To establish the oral LD50, rats received single oral gavage doses of 592; 1,000; or 1,690 mg/kg Fomrez UL-28 (90.6% dimethylbis[(1-oxoneodecyl)oxy]-stannane). One of 10, 6/10, and 10/10 rats died at 592; 1,000; and 1,690 mg/kg, respectively. Most of the animals exhibited hypoactivity, and abnormal excreta, along with impaired muscle coordination, tremors, and/or hypothermia in 17, 16, and 9 animals, respectively. Five of the 9 surviving animals at 592 mg/kg appeared normal by day 12, while the remaining 4 animals exhibited hair loss, hypoactivity, impaired muscle coordination, partial eye closing, hypothermia, hyper-reactivity to touch, and/or dried red material around the nose at study termination. The 4 surviving animals at 1,000 mg/kg exhibited tremors, impaired muscle coordination, hyper-reactivity to touch, and/or distended abdomen until study termination.

4. Information needs. The ITC needs use, exposure, ecological effects, and environmental fate data and more health effects data. If the ITC does not receive voluntary information submissions to meet its data needs according to the procedures in VISP, the ITC may then request that EPA promulgate a TSCA section 8(d) HaSDR rule to determine if there are unpublished data to meet those needs.

B. Chemicals Removed From the Priority Testing List: Siloxanes

To meet the data needs of the U.S. Government organizations represented on the ITC, 56 siloxanes were recommended for health effects testing in the ITC's 30th Report (57 FR 30608, July 9, 1992) (FRL-4071-4). After this recommendation, the ITC's Siloxanes Subcommittee and the Silicones Environmental Health and Safety Council (SEHSC) established a Dialogue Group to develop health effects data. The health effects data are being developed under an April 9, 1996, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between EPA and the Dow Corning Corporation and a Product Stewardship Program between EPA and SEHSC. Since the establishment of this Dialogue Group, numerous activities have occurred resulting in the removal of 51 of the 56 siloxanes on the Priority Testing List (see the ITC's 37th, 38th, 39th, 40th, and 41st Reports). During this reporting period, the SEHSC provided the ITC with a list of reports (health effects studies) that have been submitted to EPA since the implementation of the product stewardship program. The list includes reports on the 5 siloxanes being removed from the Priority Testing List. The list of reports, EPA's Document Control Number (DCN), and the key findings of these reports are available on the SEHSC's website (http://www.sehsc.com/​). SEHSC will include study summaries of the listed reports on its website by April 2002. Full copies of the listed reports are available from the EPA's Nonconfidential Information Center (NCIC) under docket control number OPTS-42071A. On its website, SEHSC also included a list of the publications that are available in the peer-reviewed literature on the health and safety data that have been developed under the siloxane product stewardship program. As a result of these activities the ITC is removing the 5 siloxanes from the Priority Testing List (Table 11).
