The United States has announced the extension of a 30-day comment period for two proposed TSCA section 6 rules.

The deadline for commenting agency’s proposals to ban trichloroethylene (TCE), which is found in vapour degreasing and to restrict and prohibit methylene chloride and N-methylpyrrolidone in paint stripping is now the May 19.

 The 30 day extension, which had an initial deadline of April 19, comes despite the objections from the NGOs that industry groups are employing to delay tactics on the EPA’s first attempts to ban substances under this section of TSCA in almost three decades.

I found the people at Nexreg very helpful when it came to addressing my Canadian product labelling needs. They were always readily available to answer questions and concerns. I'm very glad to have the Nexreg people in my corner when dealing with Canadian compliancy regulations.
