SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

This action may be of interest to the chemical manufacturers and/or importers who submitted the TMEs to EPA and to the public in general. 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?

The docket for this action, identified by docket identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2019-0578, is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics Docket (OPPT Docket), Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center (EPA/DC), West William Jefferson Clinton 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 note that due to the public health emergency the EPA Docket Center (EPA/DC) and Reading Room was closed to public visitors on March 31, 2020. Our EPA/DC staff will continue to provide customer service via email, phone, and webform. For further information on EPA/DC services, docket contact information and the current status of the EPA/DC and Reading Room, please visit https://www.epa.gov/​dockets.

II. What is the Agency's authority for taking this action?

TSCA section 5(h)(1) authorizes EPA to exempt persons from premanufacture notification (PMN) requirements and permit them to manufacture (which includes import) new chemicals for test marketing purposes, if the Agency finds that the manufacture, processing, distribution in commerce, use, and disposal of the chemicals for test marketing purposes will not present any unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment, including an unreasonable risk to a potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation identified by the Administrator for the specific conditions of use identified in the applications. The requirement to consider risks to a potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation was added to TSCA section 5(h)(1) in 2016. EPA's regulations implementing TSCA section 5(h)(1) are found at 40 CFR 720.38.

TSCA section 5(h)(6) requires EPA to publish in the Federal Register notice of receipt of an application for a TME and of the disposition of the application. The implementing regulation (40 CFR 720.38(d)) indicates that EPA will publish a notice in the Federal Register explaining the reasons for approval or denial.

III. What action is the Agency taking?

EPA is publishing this document to announce TME approvals and denials. EPA determined that test marketing the new chemicals, under the conditions in the TME applications, will not present any unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment; the Agency approved the TMEs listed in Unit IV. For those TMEs for which EPA made this approval after TSCA was amended in June 2016 by the Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, EPA's determination included an assessment of unreasonable risk to a potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation identified by the Agency for the specific conditions of use identified in the applications.

EPA has denied the following TMEs because EPA was unable to determine that test marketing the new chemicals, under the conditions in the TME applications will not present any unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment. For those TMEs for which EPA made this denial after TSCA was amended in June 2016, EPA's determination included an assessment of unreasonable risk to a potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation identified by the Agency for the specific conditions of use identified in the applications.
