EPA Announces Direct Final Rule Extending TSCA Title VI Compliance Dates
EPA issued today a proposed Direct Final Rule, that will be published in the Federal Register tomorrow, extending all of the TSCA Title VI compliance deadlines to account for the delays to the originally published effective date. The new compliance dates are as follows:
Emissions, recordkeeping and labeling provisions – March 22, 2018
Import certification – March 22, 2019
Laminated products – March 22, 2024
The rule also proposes to extend the transitional period for CARB-certified third-party certifiers (TPCs) to March 22, 2019.
This proposed rule will enter into effect within 45 days of publication in the Federal Register if EPA does not receive any adverse comment within 15 days. CPA will continue to follow the Federal Register closely this week in the event EPA issues a separate proposed Direct Final Rule removing the prohibition on truthful labeling prior to the compliance date.
It is also notable that this regulation formally entered into effect yesterday. This starts the clock for all of the implementation deadlines. See Proposed Direct Final Rule. More Info: Jackson Morrill
