This news update regarding the new use rule for Toluene Diisocyanates is brought to you by The Hill.



The Environmental Protection Agency is looking to protect people from harmful chemicals commonly found in homes and school buildings, the agency said Thursday.


Under the Toxic Substances Control Act, the EPA is proposing to restrict the use of the chemical Toluene Diisocyanates that is often used to manufacture household products like coatings, elastomers, adhesives and sealants.


The EPA is proposing a significant new use rule for Toluene Diisocyanates, which would require manufacturers to notify the agency at least 90 days in advance of when they intend to use the chemical in one of their products.


The restrictions would apply to domestically manufactured and imported products containing more than 0.1 percent of the chemical, the agency said.
