Certain Nonylphenols and Nonylphenol Ethoxylates; Significant New 
Use Rule; Extension of Comment Period

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule; extension of comment period.

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

SUMMARY: EPA issued a proposed rule in the Federal Register of October 
1, 2014, concerning 15 related chemical substances commonly known as 
nonylphenols (NP) and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE). For 13 NPs and 
NPEs, EPA proposed to designate any use as a ``significant new use,'' 
and for 2 additional NPs, EPA proposed that any use other than use as 
an intermediate or use as an epoxy cure catalyst would constitute a 
``significant new use.'' This document extends the comment period for 
45 days, from December 1, 2014, to January 15, 2015. The comment period 
is being extended because EPA received comments contending that the 
proposed NP/NPE Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) contains many chemicals 
that need to be analyzed, there are many documents in the docket that 
need to be reviewed, the rule involves some companies correcting how 
they identify chemicals, and companies need more time to determine 
whether they use the chemicals for purposes other than what EPA has 
identified. Extending the comment period will allow companies to more 
accurately assess and communicate to EPA how the chemicals are being 
used.

DATES: The comment period for the proposed rule published October 1, 
2014 (79 FR 59186), is extended. Comments, identified by docket 
identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2007-0490, must be received on 
or before January 15, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document extends the public comment 
period established in the Federal Register document of October 1, 2014. 
In that document, EPA proposed a SNUR for 15 related chemical 
substances commonly known as nonylphenols (NP) and nonylphenol 
ethoxylates (NPE). For 13 NPs and NPEs, EPA proposed to designate any 
use as a ``significant new use,'' and for 2 additional NPs, EPA 
proposed that any use other than use as an intermediate or use as an 
epoxy cure catalyst would constitute a ``significant new use.'' EPA is 
hereby extending the comment period, which was set to end on December 
1, 2014, to January 15, 2015.

detailed instructions provided under ADDRESSES in the Federal Register 
document of October 1, 2014. If you have questions, consult the
