EPA Will Host Conference Call on TSCA Fees Obligations

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a conference call on February 24, 2020, from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. (EST) to review certain provisions of the final rule on fees for the administration of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).  In light of the recent publication of the preliminary list of manufacturers/importers subject to risk evaluation fees, as reported in our January 29, 2020, blog item, EPA states that it will give a brief overview of the fees associated with an EPA-initiated risk evaluation, the entities subject to fees, requirements for self-identification, and how fees will be divided among those identified on final lists.  The publication of the lists has inspired considerable confusion and the call is intended to address as many as possible of them.  Questions can be submitted in advance to Ryan Schmit at schmit.ryan@epa.gov.  Additional questions will be answered as time permits.  To attend, call the following number and enter the conference ID:

Call-in Number: (877) 317-0679
Conference ID: 3372249

The preliminary list of manufacturers/importers subject to risk evaluation fees is available in Docket EPA-HQ-OPPT-2019-0677.  Reference 9 from the final rule on fees, TSCA Fee Reporting Notice (Sept. 2018), is available in the docket for the final rule at https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=EPA-HQ-OPPT-2016-0401-0079.  More information about TSCA fees is available on EPA’s website at http://www.epa.gov/TSCA-fees.
