I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

This action is directed to the public in general. This action may, however, be of interest to those persons who are concerned about data on health and/or environmental effects and other characteristics of the chemicals. Since other entities may also be interested, the Agency has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be affected by this action.

B. How can I get copies of this document and other related information?

All documents in the dockets are available at or at the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics Docket (OPPT Docket), Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center (EPA/DC), EPA West Bldg., Rm. 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC. The Public Reading Room is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. The telephone number for the Public Reading Room is (202) 566-1744, and the telephone number for the OPPT Docket is (202) 566-0280. Please review the visitor instructions and additional information about the docket available at​dockets.

II. Test Data Submissions

Section 4(d) of TSCA (15 U.S.C. 2603(d)) requires EPA to publish a notice in the Federal Register reporting the receipt of test data submitted pursuant to test rules promulgated under TSCA section 4(a) (15 U.S.C. 2603(a)). Each notice must:

1. Identify the chemical substance or mixture for which data have been received.

2. List the uses or intended uses of such chemical substance or mixture and the information required by the applicable standards for the development of test data.Start Printed Page 66701

3. Describe the nature of the test data developed.

EPA has received test data for the following three test rules:

  • EPA received data on 4 chemicals listed in the TSCA section 4 test rule entitled “Testing for Certain High Production Volume Chemicals,” published in the Federal Register issue of March 16, 2006 (71 FR 13708) (FRL-7335-2) (docket identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2005-0033).
  • EPA received data on 12 chemicals listed in the TSCA section 4 test rule entitled “Testing for Certain High Production Volume Chemicals; Second Group of Chemicals” published in the Federal Register issue of January 7, 2011 (76 FR 1067) (FRL-8846-9) (docket ID number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2007-0531).
  • EPA received data on 5 chemicals listed in the TSCA section 4 test rule entitled “Testing for Certain High Production Volume Chemicals; Third Group of Chemicals,” published in the Federal Register issue of October 21, 2011 (76 FR 65385) (FRL-8885-5) (docket ID number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2009-0112).

The tables in this unit contain the described information required by TSCA section 4(d). See the applicable CFR citations, listed in the title of each table, for test data requirements. Data received can be found by referencing the docket ID numbers and document numbers listed in the tables. See Unit I.B. of this document for additional information about dockets. EPA reviews of test data are added to the appropriate docket upon completion.
