The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a webinar on May 19, 2020, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. (EDT) to provide an overview of the 2020 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) requirements. The 2020 CDR submission period is from June 1, 2020, to November 30, 2020. The webinar will include information about the revised reporting requirements, including:
- New requirements for making confidential business information (CBI) claims;
- Reporting refinements related to byproducts, including exemptions;
- Phasing in certain processing and use data codes; and
- Process improvements for reporting co-manufacturing.
The webinar will also introduce the updated e-CDRweb reporting tool. EPA notes that the presentation will be similar to the webinars EPA hosted on March 31 and April 9, 2020.
