A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

    This action is directed to the public in general. As such, the 
Agency has not attempted to describe the specific entities that this 
action may apply to. Although others may be affected, this action 
applies directly to the submitter of the premanufacture notices 
addressed in the action. If you have any questions regarding the 
applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person 
listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD ROM the 
specific information that is claimed CBI). In addition to one complete 
version of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy 
of the comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI 
must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so 
marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set 
forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions - The agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.

[[Page 60519]]

    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at the estimate.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns, and 
suggested alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

II. Why is EPA Taking this Action?

    Section 5 of TSCA requires any person who intends to manufacture 
(defined by statute to include import) a new chemical (i.e., a chemical 
not on the TSCA Inventory to notify EPA and comply with the statutory 
provisions pertaining to the manufacture of new chemicals. Under 
sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3) of TSCA, EPA is required to publish a 
notice of receipt of a PMN or an application for a TME and to publish 
periodic status reports on the chemicals under review and the receipt 
of notices of commencement to manufacture those chemicals. This status 
report, which covers the period from September 11, 2006, to September 
15, 2006, consists of the PMNs and TME both pending or expired, and the 
notices of commencement to manufacture a new chemical that the Agency 
has received under TSCA section 5 during this time period.

III. Receipt and Status Report for PMNs and TME

    This status report identifies the PMNs pending or expired, and the 
notices of commencement to manufacture a new chemical that the Agency 
has received under TSCA section 5 during this time period. If you are 
interested in information that is not included in the following tables, 
you may contact EPA as described in Unit II. to access additional non-
CBI information that may be available.
    In Table I of this unit, EPA provides the following information (to 
the extent that such information is not claimed as CBI) on the PMNs and 
TME received by EPA during this period: the EPA case number assigned to 
the PMN; the date the PMN was received by EPA; the projected end date 
for EPA's review of the PMN; the submitting manufacturer; the potential 
uses identified by the manufacturer in the PMN; and the chemical 
identity.
