EPA Will Hold Webinar on Final CBI Rule
By Lynn L. Bergeson and Carla N. Hutton
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a webinar on July 18, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT) on its recent final procedural rule for submitting confidential business information (CBI) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 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. Registration for the webinar is open. More information is available in our June 12, 2023, memorandum.
