Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-03-17
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This document provides the reasons for EPA's response to a petition it received under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The TSCA section 21 petition was received from Earthjustice, Natural Resources Defense Council, Toxic-Free Future, Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, BlueGreen Alliance, and Environmental Health Strategy Center on December 13, 2016. The petitioners requested that EPA issue an order under TSCA section 4, requiring that testing be conducted by manufacturers (which includes importers) and processors on tetrabromobisphenol A (``TBBPA'') (CAS No. 79-94-7). After careful consideration, EPA denied the TSCA section 21 petition for the reasons discussed in this document.
