EPA Will Hold Webinar on PFAS Reporting Requirements on January 25, 2024

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a webinar on January 25, 2024, on its October 2023 per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) reporting rule under Section 8(a)(7) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The rule is a statutory requirement under the fiscal year (FY) 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that requires all manufacturers (including importers) of PFAS and PFAS-containing articles in any year since 2011 to report information related to chemical identity, uses, volumes made and processed, byproducts, environmental and health effects, worker exposure, and disposal to EPA. EPA notes that the rule will provide EPA, its partners, and the public “with the largest-ever dataset of PFAS manufactured and used in the United States.”

EPA will provide an overview of the TSCA Section 8(a)(7) rule’s requirements. EPA will also answer questions from webinar participants. EPA encourages attendees to submit questions in advance to no later than January 18, 2024. Registration is open. More information on the reporting rule is available in our October 3, 2023, memorandum.
