The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is suspending the next Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) submission period, under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 8(a) regulations. The IUR requires manufacturers and importers of certain chemical substances included on the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory to report current data on the manufacturing, processing, and use of the chemical substances.

The agency said it is suspending the next submission period to allow time to finalize modifications to the regulations, proposed in the Federal Register of August 13, 2010, and to avoid finalizing changes in the midst of the 2011 submission period. EPA said it will cement changes to the reporting requirements “in the near future,” superseding the suspension.
