Certain New Chemicals or Significant New Uses; Statements of Findings for September 2016, 65636-65637 [2016-22972]

Download as PDF 65636 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 185 / Friday, September 23, 2016 / Notices Estimated Number of Respondents: 201 (total, including engine manufacturers, owners and operators). Frequency of Response: Quarterly, Annually, On Occasion, depending on the type of response. Total Estimated Burden: 24,813 hours per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total Estimated Cost: $1,931,765 (per year), includes an estimated $734,588 annualized capital or maintenance and operational costs. Changes in Estimates: To date, there are no changes in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. However, EPA is evaluating information that may lead to a change in the estimates. After EPA has evaluated this information, burden estimates may slightly decrease due to the fact that EPA has received fewer applications for certification of Category 3 engine families than previously estimated. Cost estimates may increase due to inflation and labor rate changes. Dated: September 19, 2016. Byron J. Bunker, Director, Compliance Division, Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Office of Air and Radiation.

SUMMARY: Section 5(g) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) 
requires EPA to publish in the Federal Register a statement of its 
findings after its review of TSCA section 5(a) notices when EPA makes a 
finding that a new chemical substance or significant new use is not 
likely to present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the 
environment. Such statements apply to premanufacture notices (PMNs), 
microbial commercial activity notices (MCANs), and significant new use 
notices (SNUNs) submitted to EPA under TSCA section 5. This document 
presents statements of findings made by EPA on TSCA section 5(a) 
notices during the period from June 22, 2016 to September 19, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. General Information

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 submitters of the PMNs addressed in this 
action.

B. How can I get copies of this document and other related information?

    The docket for this action, identified by docket identification 
(ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2016-0511 is available at http://www.regulations.gov or at the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics 
Docket (OPPT Docket), Environmental Protection Agency Docket Center 
(EPA/DC), West William Jefferson Clinton Bldg., Rm. 3334, 1301 
Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC. The Public Reading Room is open 
from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal 
holidays. The telephone number for the Public Reading Room is (202) 
566-1744, and the telephone number for the OPPT Docket is (202) 566-
0280. Please review the visitor instructions and additional information 
about the docket available at http://www.epa.gov/dockets.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

    This document lists the statements of findings made by EPA after 
review of notices submitted under TSCA section 5(a) that certain new 
chemical substances or significant new uses are not likely to present 
an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment. This 
document presents statements of findings made by EPA during the period 
from June 22, 2016 to September 19, 2016.

III. What is the Agency's authority for taking this action?

    TSCA section 5(a)(3) requires EPA to review a TSCA section 5(a) 
notice and make one of the following specific findings:
     The chemical substance or significant new use presents an 
unreasonable risk of injury to health or the environment;
     The information available to EPA is insufficient to permit 
a reasoned evaluation of the health and environmental effects of the 
chemical substance or significant new use;
     The information available to EPA is insufficient to permit 
a reasoned evaluation of the health and environmental effects and the 
chemical substance or significant new use may present an unreasonable 
risk of injury to health or the environment;
     The chemical substance is or will be produced in 
substantial quantities, and such substance either enters or may 
reasonably be anticipated to enter the environment in substantial 
quantities or there is or may be significant or substantial human 
exposure to the substance; or
     The chemical substance or significant new use is not 
likely to present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the 
environment.
    Unreasonable risk findings must be made without consideration of 
costs or other non-risk factors, including an unreasonable risk to a 
potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation identified as relevant 
under the conditions of use. The term ``conditions of use'' is defined 
in TSCA section 3 to mean ``the circumstances, as determined by the 
Administrator, under which a chemical substance is intended, known, or 
reasonably foreseen to be manufactured, processed, distributed in 
commerce, used, or disposed of.''
    EPA is required under TSCA section 5(g) to publish in the Federal 
Register a statement of its findings after its review of a TSCA section 
5(a) notice when EPA makes a finding that a new chemical substance or 
significant new use is not likely to present an unreasonable risk of 
injury to health or the environment. Such statements apply to 
premanufacture notices (PMNs), microbial commercial activity notices 
(MCANs), and significant new use notices (SNUNs) submitted to EPA under 
TSCA section 5.
    Anyone who plans to manufacture (which includes import) a new 
chemical substance for a non-exempt commercial purpose, and any 
manufacturer or processor wishing to engage in a use of a chemical 
substance designated by EPA as a significant new use, must submit a 
notice to EPA at least 90 days before commencing manufacture of the new 
chemical substance, or before manufacture or processing, for the 
significant new use.

[[Page 65637]]

    The submitter of a notice to EPA for which EPA has made a finding 
of ``not likely to present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or 
the environment'' may commence manufacture of the chemical substance or 
manufacture or processing for the significant new use notwithstanding 
any remaining portion of the applicable review period.

IV. Statements of Administrator Findings Under TSCA Section 5(a)(3)(C)
