On July 7, 2011, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) concluded its review of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) draft final rule to amend the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Section 8(a) Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) regulations. This means that the final rule will probably be published in the Federal Register sometime in July or August. As of its effective date, which likely will be based upon its date of publication, this final rule will supersede the final rule that the EPA published on May 11, 2011 to suspend the June 1st through September 30th submission period for 2011 reports. A link to additional information is provided below.
