EPA finalized PFAS reporting rule requiring companies to send 12 years of data
Vol. 1380 | 10 Oct 2023
EPA PFAS Reporting Rule will require manufacturers, importers of PFAS and PFAS containing articles to report information related to PFAS chemicals used, identity such as CAS #, uses, volume, environmental and health effect, disposal etc. in any year after 2011.
The reporting rule under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is a statutory requirement under the FY2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that requires all manufacturers (including importers) of PFAS and PFAS-containing articles in any year since 2011 to report information related to chemical identity, uses, volumes made and processed, byproducts, environmental and health effects, worker exposure, and disposal to EPA.
This rule will produce actionable data that can be used by EPA, as well as state, and local governments to craft policies and laws that protect people from dangerous “forever chemicals.”
EPA has determined that at least 1,462 PFAS that are known to have been made or used in the U.S. since 2011 will be subject to the final rule.
Data is due to EPA within 18 months of the effective date of the final rule, with an additional six months for reports from small businesses that are solely reporting data on importing PFAS contained in articles.
