titled ``Revocation of TSCA Section 4 Testing Requirements for Certain 
Chemical Substances,'' published in the Federal Register issue of April 
12, 2006 (71 FR 18650) (FRL-7751-7).
    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)

been received.
    2. List the uses or intended uses of such substance or mixture and 
the information required by the applicable standards for the 
development of test data.
    3. Describe the nature of the test data developed.
    The following table contains the information described in this 
document. See the applicable CFR cite, listed in the table, for test 
data requirements. EPA has completed its review and evaluation process 
for these submissions. The reviews have been added to the docket.
