If you have any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1 69724 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 217 / Wednesday, November 9, 2011 / Notices 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 email. 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 as 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 ID 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. 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 your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be reproduced. vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and suggest 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? EPA classifies a chemical substance as either an ‘‘existing’’ chemical or a ‘‘new’’ chemical. Any chemical substance that is not on EPA’s TSCA Inventory is classified as a ‘‘new chemical,’’ while those that are on the TSCA Inventory are classified as an ‘‘existing chemical.’’ For more information about the TSCA Inventory go to: http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/ newchems/pubs/inventory.htm. Anyone who plans to manufacture or import a new chemical substance for a nonexempt commercial purpose is required by TSCA section 5 to provide EPA with a PMN, before initiating the activity. Section 5(h)(1) of TSCA authorizes EPA to allow persons, upon application, to manufacture (includes import) or process a new chemical substance, or a chemical substance subject to a significant new use rule (SNUR) issued under TSCA section 5(a), for ‘‘test marketing’’ purposes, which is referred to as a test marketing exemption, or TME. For more information about the requirements applicable to a new chemical go to: http://www.epa.gov/opt/ newchems. Under TSCA sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3), EPA is required to publish in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of a PMN or an application for a TME and to publish in the Federal Register periodic status reports on the new chemicals under review and the receipt of NOCs to manufacture those chemicals. This status report, which covers the period from September 12, 2011 to September 23.2011, consists of the PMNs and TMEs, both pending or expired, and the NOCs to manufacture a new chemical that the Agency has received under TSCA section 5 during this time period. III.

Certain New Chemicals; Receipt and Status Information

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (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 Chemical 
Substances Inventory (TSCA Inventory)) to notify EPA and comply with 
the statutory provisions pertaining to the manufacture of new 
chemicals. Under TSCA sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3), EPA is required to 
publish in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of a premanufacture 
notice (PMN) or an application for a test marketing exemption (TME), 
and to publish in the Federal Register periodic status reports on the 
new chemicals under review and the receipt of notices of commencement 
(NOC) to manufacture those chemicals. This document, which covers the 
period from September 12, 2011 to September 23, 2011, and provides the 
required notice and status report, consists of the PMNs and TMEs, both 
pending or expired, and the NOC to manufacture a new chemical that the 
Agency has received under TSCA section 5 during this time period.

action may apply to. Although others may be affected, this action

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 email. 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 as 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 ID 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.
    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 your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest 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?

    EPA classifies a chemical substance as either an ``existing'' 
chemical or a ``new'' chemical. Any chemical substance that is not on 
EPA's TSCA Inventory is classified as a ``new chemical,'' while those 
that are on the TSCA Inventory are classified as an ``existing 
chemical.'' For more information about the TSCA Inventory go to: http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/newchems/pubs/inventory.htm. Anyone who plans to 
manufacture or import a new chemical substance for a non-exempt 
commercial purpose is required by TSCA section 5 to provide EPA with a 
PMN, before initiating the activity. Section 5(h)(1) of TSCA authorizes 
EPA to allow persons, upon application, to manufacture (includes 
import) or process a new chemical substance, or a chemical substance 
subject to a significant new use rule (SNUR) issued under TSCA section 
5(a), for ``test marketing'' purposes, which is referred to as a test 
marketing exemption, or TME. For more information about the 
requirements applicable to a new chemical go to: http://www.epa.gov/opt/newchems.
    Under TSCA sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3), EPA is required to publish 
in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of a PMN or an application 
for a TME and to publish in the Federal Register periodic status 
reports on the new chemicals under review and the receipt of NOCs to 
manufacture those chemicals. This status report, which covers the 
period from September 12, 2011 to September 23.2011, consists of the 
PMNs and TMEs, both pending or expired, and the NOCs to manufacture a 
new chemical that the Agency has received under TSCA section 5 during 
this time period.

III. Receipt and Status Reports

    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 
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/importer, the 
potential uses identified by the manufacturer/importer in the PMN, and 
the chemical identity.
