FYI

EPA is releasing three draft guidance documents for public comment clarifying the circumstances under which the Agency may disclose Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) confidential business information (CBI) with an expanded set of people. Last year’s TSCA amendments allow EPA, under certain conditions and when there is a need, to share TSCA CBI with:

• state, tribal, and local governments;
• environmental, health, and medical professionals; and
• emergency responders

These draft guidance documents are part of EPA’s efforts to increase transparency and support an understanding of how this information may be requested and shared.

EPA invites governments and other stakeholders to review and comment on these draft guidance documents, available here: https://www.epa.gov/tsca-cbi/requesting ... under-tsca. The 30-day comment period will open upon publication of the notice in the Federal Register; comments can be submitted to docket EPA-HQ-OPPT-2017-0652.

EPA is also collecting comments on burden and other information required by the Paperwork Reduction Act related to these documents. The Information Collection Request (ICR) is detailed in a separate notice: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D= ... -0652-0001. Comments can be submitted to docket EPA-HQ-OPPT-2017-0652-0001. The comment period ends on May 11, 2018.

EPA anticipates using comments received in response to these two notices to inform the development of finalized guidance documents, which will be released in June 2018.
