Agency Recommendation*Terminate
Legislation to Terminate RequiredNo
Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of the Committee was to negotiate a proposed rule that would limit chemical data reporting requirements under section 8(a) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), as amended by the Frank. R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, for manufacturers of any inorganic byproduct chemical substances, when such byproduct chemical substances are subsequently recycled, reused, or reprocessed. In October 2017, the Committee determined that it was not able to reach consensus on regulatory approaches and concluded its negotiations. Though the Committee concluded its discussions, EPA provided an opportunity for the public to offer input on where there is opportunity to reduce burden for the reporting of inorganic byproducts while maintaining the Agency’s ability to receive the information it needs to understand exposure. EPA has determined that the Committee should be terminated because the Committee has ended its negotiations and EPA has fulfilled its obligations under TSCA section 8(a)(6) to conduct a negotiated rulemaking.
How is membership balanced?*The Committee was composed of approximately 35 representatives with interests that could be significantly affected by the proposed rule the Committee was charged with negotiating, including at least one member who represented the EPA. Members were persons who represented groups or organizations with interests relevant to chemical data reporting for inorganic byproduct chemical substances, when such byproduct chemical substances are subsequently recycled, reused, or reprocessed. Representatives also had the necessary authority to negotiate and reach an agreement on behalf of their organization. In selecting members, EPA considered candidates from industry, environmental advocacy groups, state and tribal governments, and environmental justice advocacy groups.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee met three times in June, August and September 2017 before the Committee determined that it was not able to reach consensus on regulatory approaches and concluded its discussions.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This negotiation process was required by section 8(a)(6) of TSCA.
Why close or partially close meetings?Not Applicable
Recommendation RemarksThe TSCA Chemical Data Reporting Negotiated Rulemaking Committee has been terminated because the Committee has ended its negotiations and EPA has fulfilled its obligations under TSCA section 8(a)(6) to conduct a negotiated rulemaking.
