EPA Will Hold Second Webinar on Final CBI Rule
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held a webinar on July 18, 2023, on its recent final procedural rule for submitting confidential business information (CBI) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). EPA has added a second webinar date, July 20, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT). The final rule increases transparency, modernizes the reporting and review procedures for CBI, and aligns with the 2016 amendments to TSCA. The rule will become effective on August 7, 2023. EPA states that the webinar will be useful for anyone looking for an overview of the new rule and the new requirements for companies that submit data under TSCA. It will include a demonstration of how and where to locate and open time-sensitive notifications from EPA relating to CBI claims and how to update company contact information, and it will show how CBI claim requirements have been further integrated into TSCA reporting applications. EPA will accept questions during the webinar that it will answer in a written question and answer (Q&A) document at a later date. Registration for the July 20, 2023, webinar is open. EPA will provide a recording of the webinar and the slides in the future. More information is available in our June 12, 2023, memorandum.
