Certain New Chemicals; Receipt and Status Information

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is required under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) 
to publish in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of a 
premanufacture notice (PMN); an application for a test marketing 
exemption (TME), both pending and/or expired; and a periodic status 
report on any new chemicals under EPA review and the receipt of notices 
of commencement (NOC) to manufacture those chemicals. This document 
covers the period from September 16, 2014 to October 3, 2014.

DATES: Comments identified by the specific PMN number, must be received 
on or before December 15, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by docket identification 
(ID) number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2015-0707, and the specific PMN number or TME 
number for the chemical related to your comment, by one of the 
following methods:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

    This action is directed to the public in general. As such, the 
Agency has not attempted to describe the specific entities that this 
action may apply to. Although others may be affected, this action 
applies directly to the submitter of the PMNs addressed in this action.

B. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When preparing and submitting 
your comments, see the commenting tips at http://www.epa.gov/dockets/comments.html.

II. What action is the Agency taking?

    This document provides receipt and status reports, which cover the 
period from September 16, 2014 to October 3, 2014, and consists of PMNs 
both pending and/or expired, and the NOCs to manufacture a new chemical 
that the Agency has received under TSCA section 5 during this time 
period.

III. What is the Agency's authority for taking this action?

    Section 5 of TSCA requires that EPA periodical publish in the 
Federal Register receipt and status reports, which cover the following 
EPA activities required by provisions of TSCA section 5.
    EPA classifies a chemical substance as either an ``existing'' 
chemical or a ``new'' chemical. Any chemical substance that is not on 
EPA's TSCA Inventory is classified as a ``new chemical,'' while those 
that are on the TSCA Inventory are classified as an ``existing 
chemical.'' For more information about the TSCA Inventory go to: http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/newchems/pubs/inventory.htm. Anyone who plans to 
manufacture or import a new chemical substance for a non-exempt 
commercial purpose is required by TSCA section 5 to provide EPA with a 
PMN, before initiating the activity. Section 5(h)(1) of TSCA authorizes 
EPA to allow persons, upon application, to manufacture (includes 
import) or process a new chemical substance, or a chemical substance 
subject to a significant new use rule (SNUR) issued under TSCA section 
5(a), for ``test marketing'' purposes, which is referred to as a test 
marketing exemption, or TME. For more information about the 
requirements applicable to a new chemical go to: http://www.epa.gov/oppt/newchems.
    Under TSCA sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3), EPA is required to publish 
in the Federal Register a notice of receipt of a PMN or an application 
for a TME and to publish in the Federal Register periodic status 
reports on the new chemicals under review and the receipt of NOCs to 
manufacture those chemicals.

IV. Receipt and Status Reports

    In Table I. of this unit, EPA provides the following information 
(to the extent that such information is not claimed as CBI) on the PMNs 
received by EPA during this period: The EPA case number assigned to the 
PMN, the date the PMN was received by EPA, the projected end date for 
EPA's review of the PMN, the submitting manufacturer/importer, the 
potential uses identified by the manufacturer/importer in the PMN, and 
the chemical identity.
