Yesterday, EPA sent out a note indicating that it had extended the comment period on the proposed TSCA Inventory Notification (Active-Inactive) rule in error.
The public comment period for this proposed rule closed on March 14, 2017. EPA received a request from a trade association representing members of potentially affected companies to extend the comment period; however, a formal extension of the comment period was not feasible in the short time that remained until the comment period closed.
EPA will make every effort to consider comments received outside of the formal comment period, if provided by March 24, 2017. EPA cannot consider comments received beyond March 24 due to the time constraints in meeting the June 22, 2017 statutory deadline for finalizing the rule.
Stakeholders who wish to provide comments after the formal deadline of March 14, 2017 should send their comments to Myrta Christian Christian.myrta**At_Symbol_Here**epa.gov, or follow the mail and hand delivery guidelines outlined in the Federal Register.
We apologize for the error.
This e-mail is from DCHAS-L, the e-mail list of the ACS Division of Chemical Health and Safety.
For more information about the list, contact the Divisional secretary at secretary**At_Symbol_Here**dchas.org
