The US Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was passed on October 11, 1976 and came into effect on January 1, 1977. The latest TSCA Inventory was published in August 2021,which includes a total of 86,607 existing chemical substances.

Substances included in the TSCA Inventory are existing substances in the US, and are divided into a public list and a confidential list. Currently,there are 18,416 existing substances listed in the confidential list. To check whether a substance is listed on the confidential list, enterprises shall submit a Bona Fide Intent to request written confirmation from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

► Chemicals not listed in the TSCA are classified as new chemical substances. Manufacturers or importers shall submit pre-manufacture notification (PMN) applications to the EPA through the CDX system at least 90 days before manufacture or import. For new chemical substances that meet special requirements,certain exemptions instead of a full PMN filing shall be submitted,including Low Volume Exemption, Test Market Exemption, Low Exposure Exemption, Polymer Exemption, R&D Exemption, etc.

► Substances listed in the TSCA Inventory shall be confirmed whether it is an active substance. If it is negative, a notification to the EPA is required first. In addition,existing substances shall be confirmed whether they are subject to Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) and Significant New Use Reporting (SNUR).

► When a PMN obtains approval, a Notice of Commencement (NOC) shall be submitted to the EPA within 30 days of first importation or production.
