What Manufacturers Should Know About PFAS Reporting Requirements  

On October 11, 2023, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a Final Rule for the reporting and recordkeeping requirements for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Section 8(a)(7). In accordance with obligations under TSCA, as amended by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020, the EPA requires persons that manufacture (including import) or have manufactured these chemical substances in any year since January 1, 2011, to submit information to EPA following CFR Part 705 regarding PFAS uses, production volumes, byproducts, disposal, exposures, and existing information on environmental or health effects. This required data submission will be similar in form to existing Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) forms but covering a much more select group of substances. 

In this whitepaper, our resident expert, Steven Ernst, Senior Regulatory Consultant, covers everything you need to know about navigating these EPA PFAS reporting and recordkeeping requirements. To learn more about PFAS, how the EPA’s rule applies to your compliance, and what you can do to satisfy regulatory expectations, consider downloading our whitepaper as helpful reference material.
