[EPA-HQ-OPPT-2005-0033; FRL-9350-2]
RIN 2070-AD16


Withdrawal of Revocation of TSCA Section 4 Testing Requirements 
for One High Production Volume Chemical Substance

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In the Federal Register issue of March 16, 2012, EPA published 
a direct final rule revoking certain testing requirements promulgated 
under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for 10 chemical 
substances, including benzenesulfonic acid, [[4-[[4-
(phenylamino)phenyl][4-(phenylimino)-2,5-cyclohexadien-1-
ylidene]methyl]phenyl]amino]- (CAS No. 1324-76-1), also known as C.I. 
Pigment Blue 61. EPA received an adverse comment regarding C.I. Pigment 
Blue 61. This document withdraws the revocation of testing requirements 
for C.I. Pigment Blue 61 as described in the March 16, 2012 direct 
final rule. In withdrawing the revocation, this document also restores 
the original testing requirements as currently shown in the Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR). Elsewhere in today's Federal Register, EPA 
is publishing a proposed rule revoking the same testing requirements 
for C.I. Pigment Blue 61 that were published in the March 16, 2012 
direct final rule.

DATES: This final rule is effective May 15, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Does this action apply to me?

    A list of potentially affected entities is provided in the Federal 
Register issue of March 16, 2012 (77 FR 15609) (FRL-9335-6). If you 
have questions regarding the applicability of this action to a 
particular entity, consult the technical person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

II. What rule is being withdrawn?

    In the March 16, 2012 Federal Register, EPA issued a revocation of 
some or all of the TSCA section 4 testing requirements for 10 chemical 
substances by direct final rule. In accordance with the procedures 
described in the March 16, 2012 Federal Register document, EPA is 
withdrawing the revocation of certain testing requirements for C.I. 
Pigment Blue 61 and also restoring the original testing requirements 
found in the CFR, because the Agency received an adverse comment 
concerning this chemical substance. The final rule revoking testing 
requirements for the other 9 chemical substances described in the March 
16, 2012 Federal Register document is otherwise unaffected by the 
withdrawal of the revocation for C.I. Pigment Blue 61. Elsewhere in 
today's Federal Register, EPA is proposing a rule to revoke certain 
test rule requirements for C.I. Pigment Blue 61.
    The docket identification (ID) number for the test rule concerning 
this chemical substance was established at EPA-HQ-OPPT-2005-0033. That 
docket includes information considered by the Agency in developing 
those rules and the adverse comment.
