The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon announce that the Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) submission period has been extended from November 30, 2020, to January 29, 2021. A Federal Register notice has been signed, and EPA expects to post a pre-publication version of the notice on its website. To assist chemical manufacturers and processors with submitting CDR data, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.’s (B&C®) affiliate The Acta Group (Acta®) developed CDR Cross-Check™, an ingenious and cost-efficient tool to identify whether a company’s chemicals are subject to CDR and, if so, at what reporting threshold.
CDR Cross-Check will identify:
- Whether the chemical is listed as active or inactive;
- Whether the chemical was subject to specific Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) regulatory actions in 2016;
- Whether the chemical is exempt; and
- What the reporting thresholds are based on the updated data released by EPA on May 29, 2020.
Visit the CDR Cross-Check page on the Acta website for a sample report and information on how to use CDR Cross-Check.
