> As directed by the recent amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA has released a list of five mercury compounds that cannot be exported as of January 1, 2020. This action will prevent the ability to convert these compounds to elemental mercury after export from the United States. The list of prohibited mercury compounds includes: mercury (I) chloride or calomel; mercury (II) oxide; mercury (II) sulfate; mercury (II) nitrate; and cinnabar or mercury sulphide. These particular mercury compounds were identified by Congress in the recent amendments to TSCA, and EPA was directed to publish a notice in the Federal Register by September 19, 2016. These compounds are generally manufactured or imported in small quantities, used in laboratory chemistry and electrochemistry, or occur in industrial waste or byproducts.
