The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act of 2016 (LCSA), which amended the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), requires EPA to designate chemical substances on the TSCA Inventory as either “active” or “inactive” in commerce, following the completion of a regulatory Inventory “reset” process.

The “reset” process is conducted in two parts. First, manufacturers and importers notified EPA of active chemicals in commerce. That reporting period has ended. EPA has released a “draft” Inventory, with the results of the manufacturer reporting. Second, processors may now notify EPA of active chemicals in commerce until October 5th, 2018. Processors can check the draft Inventory to see if their chemicals are marked as “active.” Only chemicals designated as “active” may be manufactured, imported, or processed in US commerce. Chemical substances not designated as active will need to be notified as active through either a Form A or Form B notification process. To learn more, please review our decision tree, Q&A, and Glossary.
