On June 11, 2012, Jim Jones, EPA’s Acting Assistant Administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, signed a final rule to amend the TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) regulations by extending the submission deadline for 2012 reports from June 30, 2012, to August 13, 2012.  This is a one-time extension for the 2012 submission period only.  The CDR regulations require manufacturers and importers of certain chemical substances included on the TSCA Inventory to report current data on the manufacturing, processing, and use of the chemical substances.

An unofficial, prepublication version of the final rule is available on EPA's website at:

The final rule will take effect upon publication of the official version in the Federal Register.
