Significant New Use Rules on Certain Chemical Substances

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is promulgating significant new use rules (SNURs) under

[[Page 75391]]

the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for 9 chemical substances which 
were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMNs). This action requires 
persons who intend to manufacture, import, or process any of these 9 
chemical substances for an activity that is designated as a significant 
new use by this rule to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing 
that activity. The required notification will provide EPA with the 
opportunity to evaluate the intended use and, if necessary, to prohibit 
or limit that activity before it occurs.

DATES: This rule is effective on February 19, 2013. For purposes of 
judicial review, this rule shall be promulgated at 1 p.m. (e.s.t.) on 
January 3, 2013.
    Written adverse or critical comments, or notice of intent to submit 
adverse or critical comments, on one or more of these SNURs must be 
received on or before January 22, 2013 (see Unit VI. of the 
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION). If adverse comment is received, EPA will 
publish a timely withdrawal of the rule in the Federal Register.
    For additional information on related reporting requirement dates, 
see Units I.A., VI., and VII. of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. General Information

A. Does this action apply to me?

    You may be potentially affected by this action if you manufacture, 
import, process, or use the chemical substances contained in this rule. 
The following list of North American Industrial Classification System 
(NAICS) codes is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides a 
guide to help readers determine whether this document applies to them. 
Potentially affected entities may include:
     Manufacturers, importers, or processors of one or more 
subject chemical substances (NAICS codes 325 and 324110), e.g., 
chemical manufacturing and petroleum refineries.
    This action may also affect certain entities through pre-existing 
import certification and export notification rules under TSCA. Chemical 
importers are subject to the TSCA section 13 (15 U.S.C. 2612) import 
certification requirements promulgated at 19 CFR 12.118 through 12.127 
and 19 CFR 127.28. Chemical importers must certify that the shipment of 
the chemical substance complies with all applicable rules and orders 
under TSCA. Importers of chemicals subject to these SNURs must certify 
their compliance with the SNUR requirements. The EPA policy in support 
of import certification appears at 40 CFR part 707, subpart B. In 
addition, any persons who export or intend to export a chemical 
substance that is the subject of this rule on or after January 22, 2013 
are subject to the export notification provisions of TSCA section 12(b) 
(15 U.S.C. 2611(b)) (see Sec.  721.20), and must comply with the export 
notification requirements in 40 CFR part 707, subpart D.

B. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one

[[Page 75392]]

complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest alternatives.
    vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

II. Background

A. What action is the agency taking?

    EPA is promulgating these SNURs using direct final procedures. 
These SNURs will require persons to notify EPA at least 90 days before 
commencing the manufacture, import, or processing of a chemical 
substance for any activity designated by these SNURs as a significant 
new use. Receipt of such notices allows EPA to assess risks that may be 
presented by the intended uses and, if appropriate, to regulate the 
proposed use before it occurs. Additional rationale and background to 
these rules are more fully set out in the preamble to EPA's first 
direct final SNUR published in the Federal Register issue of April 24, 
1990 (55 FR 17376) (April 24, 1990 SNUR). Consult that preamble for 
further information on the objectives, rationale, and procedures for 
SNURs and on the basis for significant new use designations, including 
provisions for developing test data.

B. What is the agency's authority for taking this action?

    Section 5(a)(2) of TSCA (15 U.S.C. 2604(a)(2)) authorizes EPA to 
determine that a use of a chemical substance is a ``significant new 
use.'' EPA must make this determination by rule after considering all 
relevant factors, including the four bulleted TSCA section 5(a)(2) 
factors listed in Unit III. Once EPA determines that a use of a 
chemical substance is a significant new use, TSCA section 5(a)(1)(B) 
requires persons to submit a significant new use notice (SNUN) to EPA 
at least 90 days before they manufacture, import, or process the 
chemical substance for that use. Persons who must report are described 
in Sec.  721.5.

C. Applicability of General Provisions

    General provisions for SNURs appear in 40 CFR part 721, subpart A. 
These provisions describe persons subject to the rule, recordkeeping 
requirements, exemptions to reporting requirements, and applicability 
of the rule to uses occurring before the effective date of the rule. 
Provisions relating to user fees appear at 40 CFR part 700. According 
to Sec.  721.1(c), persons subject to these SNURs must comply with the 
same SNUN requirements and EPA regulatory procedures as submitters of 
PMNs under TSCA section 5(a)(1)(A). In particular, these requirements 
include the information submission requirements of TSCA section 5(b) 
and 5(d)(1), the exemptions authorized by TSCA section 5(h)(1), (h)(2), 
(h)(3), and (h)(5), and the regulations at 40 CFR part 720. Once EPA 
receives a SNUN, EPA may take regulatory action under TSCA section 
5(e), 5(f), 6, or 7 to control the activities for which it has received 
the SNUN. If EPA does not take action, EPA is required under TSCA 
section 5(g) to explain in the Federal Register its reasons for not 
taking action.

III. Significant New Use Determination

    Section 5(a)(2) of TSCA states that EPA's determination that a use 
of a chemical substance is a significant new use must be made after 
consideration of all relevant factors, including:
     The projected volume of manufacturing and processing of a 
chemical substance.
     The extent to which a use changes the type or form of 
exposure of human beings or the environment to a chemical substance.
     The extent to which a use increases the magnitude and 
duration of exposure of human beings or the environment to a chemical 
substance.
     The reasonably anticipated manner and methods of 
manufacturing, processing, distribution in commerce, and disposal of a 
chemical substance.
    In addition to these factors enumerated in TSCA section 5(a)(2), 
the statute authorized EPA to consider any other relevant factors.
    To determine what would constitute a significant new use for the 9 
chemical substances that are the subject of these SNURs, EPA considered 
relevant information about the toxicity of the chemical substances, 
likely human exposures and environmental releases associated with 
possible uses, and the four bulleted TSCA section 5(a)(2) factors 
listed in this unit.

IV. Substances Subject to This Rule

    EPA is establishing significant new use and recordkeeping 
requirements for 9 chemical substances in 40 CFR part 721, subpart E. 
In this unit, EPA provides the following information for each chemical 
substance:
     PMN number.
     Chemical name (generic name, if the specific name is 
claimed as CBI).
     Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry number (if 
assigned for non-confidential chemical identities).
     Basis for the SNUR.
     Toxicity concerns.
     Tests recommended by EPA to provide sufficient information 
to evaluate the chemical substance (see Unit VIII. for more 
information).
     CFR citation assigned in the regulatory text section of 
this rule.
    The regulatory text section of this rule specifies the activities 
designated as significant new uses. Certain new uses, including 
production volume limits (i.e., limits on manufacture and importation 
volume) and other uses designated in this rule, may be claimed as CBI. 
Unit IX. discusses a procedure companies may use to ascertain whether a 
proposed use constitutes a significant new use.
    This rule includes SNURs on 9 PMN substances that are not subject 
to consent orders under TSCA section 5(e). In these cases, for a 
variety of reasons, EPA did not find that the use scenario described in 
the PMN triggered the determinations set forth under TSCA section 5(e). 
However, EPA does believe that certain changes from the use scenario 
described in the PMN could result in increased exposures, thereby 
constituting a ``significant new use.'' These so-called ``non-5(e) 
SNURs'' are promulgated pursuant to Sec.  721.170. EPA has determined 
that every activity designated as a ``significant new use'' in all non-
5(e) SNURs issued under Sec.  721.170 satisfies the two requirements 
stipulated in Sec.  721.170(c)(2), i.e., these significant new use 
activities, ``(i) are

[[Page 75393]]

different from those described in the premanufacture notice for the 
substance, including any amendments, deletions, and additions of 
activities to the premanufacture notice, and (ii) may be accompanied by 
changes in exposure or release levels that are significant in relation 
to the health or environmental concerns identified'' for the PMN 
substance.

PMN Number P-09-107

    Chemical name: Fatty acids, tall-oil, reaction products with 
modified fatty acids and polyalkanolamines (generic).
    CAS number: Not available.
    Basis for action: The PMN states that the generic (non-
confidential) use of the substance is as an asphalt emulsifier. Based 
on test data on the PMN substance, and ecological structural activity 
relationships (EcoSAR) analysis of test data on analogous aliphatic 
amines, EPA predicts toxicity to aquatic organisms may occur at 
concentrations that exceed 110 parts per billion (ppb) of the PMN 
substance in surface waters. As described in the PMN, releases of the 
PMN substance are not expected to result in surface water 
concentrations that exceed 110 ppb. Therefore, EPA has not determined 
that the proposed manufacturing, processing, or use of the substance 
may present an unreasonable risk. EPA has determined, however, that any 
use of the substance resulting in surface water concentrations 
exceeding 110 ppb may cause significant adverse environmental effects. 
Based on this information, the PMN substance meets the concern criteria 
at Sec.  721.170(b)(4)(i) and (b)(4)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that the results of a fish 
early-life stage toxicity test (OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1400) and a 
daphnid chronic toxicity test (OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1300) would 
help characterize the environmental effects of the PMN substance.
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10629.

PMN Numbers P-11-619 and P-11-620

    Chemical name: Amino acid, carboxyalkyl, alkylsulfonate, alkali 
salts (generic).
    CAS number: Not available.
    Basis for action: The consolidated PMN states that the generic 
(non-confidential) use of the substances will be as an industrial 
cleaning solution component. Based on test data on the PMN substances 
and EcoSAR analysis of test data on analogous polyanionic monomers, EPA 
predicts toxicity to aquatic organisms may occur at concentrations that 
exceed 770 ppb for the aggregate of the PMN substances in surface 
waters. As described in the PMN, releases to surface waters are not 
expected to exceed 770 ppb for the aggregate of the PMN substances. 
Therefore, EPA has not determined that the proposed manufacturing or 
use of the substances may present an unreasonable risk. EPA has 
determined, however, that any use of the substances resulting in 
surface water concentrations exceeding 770 ppb for the aggregate of the 
PMN substances may cause significant adverse environmental effects. 
Based on this information, the PMN substances meet the concern criteria 
at Sec.  721.170(b)(4)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that the results of an 
algal toxicity test (OCSPP Test Guideline 850.4500) would help 
characterize the environmental effects of the PMN substances.
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10630.

PMN Number P-12-64

    Chemical name: Mixed metal borate (generic).
    CAS number: Not available.
    Basis for action: The PMN states that the generic (non-
confidential) use of the substance will be as an illuminating phosphor. 
Based on test data on analogous respirable, poorly soluble 
particulates, EPA identified concerns for lung overload and 
oncogenicity to workers exposed to the PMN substance. At the production 
volume described in the PMN, and because the uses described in the PMN 
do not use an application method that generates a vapor, mist, aerosol, 
or dust significant worker exposure is minimal. Therefore, EPA has not 
determined that the proposed manufacturing, processing, or use of the 
substance may present an unreasonable risk. EPA has determined, 
however, that any use of the substance exceeding the confidential 
annual manufacture and import volume stated in the PMN or any use of 
the substance using an application method that generates a vapor, mist, 
aerosol, or dust may cause serious health effects. Based on this 
information, the PMN substance meets the concern criteria at Sec.  
721.170(b)(1)(i)(C) and (b)(3)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that the results of a 90-
day inhalation toxicity test (OPPTS Guidelines 870.3465) with a 60-day 
holding period; dry particle size distribution/counting by transmission 
electron microscope (TEM) or scanning electron microscopy (SEM) 
methods; and images of the powder for morphology would help 
characterize the human health effects of the PMN substance.
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10631.

PMN Number P-12-181

    Chemical name: Benzamide, N-[(cyclohexylamino)thioxomethyl]-.
    CAS number: 4921-92-0.
    Basis for action: The PMN states that the use of the substance is 
as a cure initiator in adhesive formulations. Based on analysis of test 
data on analogous thioureas, EPA identified concerns for thyroid 
toxicity, developmental toxicity, and developmental neurotoxicity to 
the general population exposed to the PMN substance. Based on EcoSAR 
analysis of test data on analogous imides and thioureas, EPA predicts 
toxicity to aquatic organisms may occur at concentrations that exceed 2 
ppb of the PMN substance in surface waters. For the uses described in 
the PMN, significant general population exposure is unlikely, as use in 
consumer product is not expected and releases of the PMN substance are 
not expected to result in surface water concentrations that exceed 2 
ppb. Therefore, EPA has not determined that the proposed manufacturing, 
processing, or use of the substance may present an unreasonable risk. 
EPA has determined, however, that any use of the substance in consumer 
products or use of the substance resulting in surface water 
concentrations exceeding 2 ppb may cause serious health effects or 
significant adverse environmental effects. Based on this information, 
the PMN substance meets the concern criteria at Sec.  
721.170(b)(1)(i)(C), (b)(3)(ii), and (b)(4)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that the results of an 
aquatic invertebrate acute toxicity test, freshwater daphnids (OPPTS 
Test Guideline 850.1010); fish acute toxicity test, freshwater and 
marine (OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1075); algal toxicity test (OCSPP Test 
Guideline 850.4500); and a combined repeated dose toxicity with the 
reproduction/developmental toxicity screening test (OPPTS Test 
Guideline 870.3650) would help characterize the environmental and 
health effects of the PMN substance.
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10632.

PMN Number P-12-276

    Chemical name: Aromatic sulfonic acid amino azo dye salts 
(generic).
    CAS number: Not available.
    Basis for action: The PMN states that the generic use of the PMN 
substance will be in exhaust dyeing of cellulosic fabrics. Based on the 
alkylation potential of the PMN substance, there are concerns for skin 
and lung sensitization; mutagenicity; oncogenicity; and developmental, 
liver,

[[Page 75394]]

and kidney toxicities. In addition, there are concerns for mutagenicity 
and oncogenicity, based on the beta-aromatic azo reduction product, as 
this PMN substance is expected to undergo azo reduction in the GI tract 
with good absorption potential of the reduction products. As described 
in the PMN, EPA does not expect significant exposure to workers. 
Therefore, EPA has not determined that the proposed manufacturing, 
processing, or use of the substance may present an unreasonable risk. 
EPA has determined, however, that any use of the substance without the 
use of a NIOSH-certified M100 respirator with an APF of 10 or any 
increase in the annual manufacture and import volume of 10,000 
kilograms (kgs) of the substance, could change the potential for 
exposure correspondingly, and may result in serious health effects. 
Based on this information, the PMN substance meets the concern criteria 
at Sec.  721.170(b)(1)(i)(c) and (b)(3)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that results of an Ames 
test with the Prival modification (OPPTS Test Guideline 870.5100), and 
an unscheduled DNA synthesis test in mammalian cells in culture (OPPTS 
Test Guideline 870.5550) would help characterize the health effects of 
the PMN substance. The test material for the unscheduled DNA synthesis 
test must be the specific sulfonated beta-aromatic amine that would 
result from the azo reduction of the PMN substance, rather than the 
intact PMN compound. It is necessary that the specific sulfonated-
aromatic amine in question be isolated prior to testing. For both 
tests, the beta-aromatic amine is to serve as an additional positive 
control.
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10633.

PMN Number P-12-464

    Chemical name: Iodonium, diphenyl-, 4,4'-di-C10-13-alkyl derivs., 
(OC-6-11)-hexafluoroantimonates(1-).
    CAS number: 1370442-66-2.
    Basis for action: The PMN states that the substance will be used as 
a photoinitiator used for ultraviolet release coatings. Based on the 
EcoSAR analysis of test data on analogous cationic surfactants, EPA 
predicts toxicity to aquatic organisms may occur at concentrations that 
exceed 8 ppb of the PMN substance in surface waters for greater than 20 
days per year. This 20-day criterion is derived from partial life cycle 
tests (daphnid chronic and fish early-life stage tests) that typically 
range from 21 to 28 days in duration. EPA predicts toxicity to aquatic 
organisms may occur if releases of the PMN substance to surface water 
exceed releases from the use described in the PMN. For the use 
described in the PMN, environmental releases did not exceed 8 ppb for 
more than 20 days per year. Therefore, EPA has not determined that the 
proposed manufacturing, processing, or use of the substance may present 
an unreasonable risk. EPA has determined, however, that use of the 
substance other than as described in the PMN could result in exposures 
which may cause significant adverse environmental effects. Based on 
this information, the PMN substance meets the concern criteria at Sec.  
721.170(b)(4)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that a fish early-life 
stage toxicity test (OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1400); a daphnid chronic 
toxicity test (OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1300); and an algal toxicity 
test (OCSPP Test Guideline 850.4500) would help characterize the 
environmental effects of the PMN substance. When testing the PMN 
substance, if difficulty is encountered in dissolving the chemical in 
the test media, the submitter may wish to consult the special 
considerations for conducting aquatic laboratory studies (OPPTS Test 
Guideline 850.1000).
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10634.

PMN Number P-12-480

    Chemical name: Alkyl maleimide substituted bicyclic olefin 
(generic).
    CAS number: Not available.
    Basis for action: The PMN states that substance will be used as a 
monomer in the manufacture of a specialty polymer. Based on EcoSAR 
analysis of test data on analogous imides, EPA predicts toxicity to 
aquatic organisms may occur at concentrations that exceed 1 ppb of the 
PMN substance in surface waters. As described in the PMN, releases of 
the PMN substance are not expected to result in surface water 
concentrations that exceed 1 ppb. Therefore, EPA has not determined 
that the proposed manufacturing, processing, or use of the substance 
may present an unreasonable risk. EPA has determined, however, that any 
use of the substance resulting in surface water concentrations 
exceeding 1 ppb may cause significant adverse environmental effects. 
Based on this information, the PMN substance meets the concern criteria 
at Sec.  721.170(b)(4)(ii).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that an aquatic 
invertebrate acute toxicity test, freshwater daphnids (OPPTS Test 
Guideline 850.1010); a fish acute toxicity test, freshwater and marine 
(OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1075); and an algal toxicity test (OCSPP Test 
Guideline 850.4500) would help characterize the environmental effects 
of the PMN substance. When testing the PMN substance, if difficulty is 
encountered in dissolving the chemical in the test media, the submitter 
may wish to consult the special considerations for conducting aquatic 
laboratory studies (OPPTS Test Guideline 850.1000).
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10635.

PMN Number P-12-501

    Chemical name: Slimes and sludges, automotive coating, wastewater 
treatment, solid waste.
    CAS number: 1392095-50-9.
    Chemical substance definition: The waste solids produced from the 
treatment of wastewaters from automotive pretreatment processes, 
electro-deposition coating processes, surface coating processes and 
topcoat coating processes. It may contain oxides of iron, calcium, 
aluminum, zinc, nickel, and magnesium.
    Basis for action: The PMN substance will be used as a feedstock 
replacement in cement kiln production. Based on analogous crystalline 
chemical substances, EPA identified concerns for potential 
oncogenicity. These concerns are for effects to workers from inhalation 
exposure to the PMN substance in powder form. For the uses described in 
the PMN, significant worker exposure is unlikely, as inhalation 
exposure is not expected. Therefore, EPA has not determined that the 
proposed manufacturing, processing, or use of the substance may present 
an unreasonable risk. EPA has determined, however, that the 
manufacture, processing, or use of the substance in powder form may 
cause serious health effects. Based on this information, the PMN 
substance meets the concern criteria at Sec.  721.170(b)(1)(i)(C).
    Recommended testing: EPA has determined that the results of a 90-
day inhalation toxicity test (OPPTS Test Guideline 870.3465) would help 
characterize the human health effects of the PMN substance. Test should 
be conducted with special attention to histopathology (inflammation and 
cell proliferation) of the lung tissues and to various parameters of 
the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF), e.g., marker enzyme 
activities, total protein content, total cell count, cell differential, 
and cell viability. It is not necessary to look at internal organs. A 
recovery period of 60 days should be included to assess the progression 
or regression of any lesions. If the results of the 90-day inhalation 
toxicity test indicate that the PMN particles have carcinogenic 
potential, a 2-year

[[Page 75395]]

inhalation bioassay in rats may be warranted.
    CFR citation: 40 CFR 721.10636.

V. Rationale and Objectives of the Rule

A. Rationale

    In these 9 cases, EPA determined that one or more of the criteria 
of concern established at Sec.  [emsp14]721.170 were met, as discussed 
in Unit IV.

B. Objectives

    EPA is issuing these SNURs for specific chemical substances which 
have undergone premanufacture review because the Agency wants to 
achieve the following objectives with regard to the significant new 
uses designated in this rule:
     EPA will receive notice of any person's intent to 
manufacture, import, or process a listed chemical substance for the 
described significant new use before that activity begins.
     EPA will have an opportunity to review and evaluate data 
submitted in a SNUN before the notice submitter begins manufacturing, 
importing, or processing a listed chemical substance for the described 
significant new use.
     EPA will be able to regulate prospective manufacturers, 
importers, or processors of a listed chemical substance before the 
described significant new use of that chemical substance occurs, 
provided that regulation is warranted pursuant to TSCA sections 5(e), 
5(f), 6, or 7.
    Issuance of a SNUR for a chemical substance does not signify that 
the chemical substance is listed on the TSCA Chemical Substance 
Inventory (TSCA Inventory). Guidance on how to determine if a chemical 
substance is on the TSCA Inventory is available on the Internet at 
http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/existingchemicals/pubs/tscainventory/index.html.

VI. Direct Final Procedures

    EPA is issuing these SNURs as a direct final rule, as described in 
Sec.  721.160(c)(3) and Sec.  721.170(d)(4). In accordance with Sec.  
721.160(c)(3)(ii) and Sec.  721.170(d)(4)(i)(B), the effective date of 
this rule is February 19, 2013 without further notice, unless EPA 
receives written adverse or critical comments, or notice of intent to 
submit adverse or critical comments before January 22, 2013.
    If EPA receives written adverse or critical comments, or notice of 
intent to submit adverse or critical comments, on one or more of these 
SNURs before January 22, 2013, EPA will withdraw the relevant sections 
of this direct final rule before its effective date. EPA will then 
issue a proposed SNUR for the chemical substance(s) on which adverse or 
critical comments were received, providing a 30-day period for public 
comment.
    This rule establishes SNURs for a number of chemical substances. 
Any person who submits adverse or critical comments, or notice of 
intent to submit adverse or critical comments, must identify the 
chemical substance and the new use to which it applies. EPA will not 
withdraw a SNUR for a chemical substance not identified in the comment.

VII. Applicability of Rule to Uses Occurring Before Effective Date of 
the Rule

    Significant new use designations for a chemical substance are 
legally established as of the date of publication of this direct final 
rule, December 20, 2012.
    To establish a significant ``new'' use, EPA must determine that the 
use is not ongoing. The chemical substances subject to this rule have 
undergone premanufacture review. In cases where EPA has not received a 
notice of commencement (NOC) and the chemical substance has not been 
added to the TSCA Inventory, no other person may commence such 
activities without first submitting a PMN. For chemical substances for 
which an NOC has not been submitted at this time, EPA concludes that 
the uses are not ongoing. However, EPA recognizes that prior to the 
effective date of the rule, when chemical substances identified in this 
SNUR are added to the TSCA Inventory, other persons may engage in a 
significant new use as defined in this rule before the effective date 
of the rule. However, 6 of the 9 chemical substances contained in this 
rule have CBI chemical identities, and since EPA has received a limited 
number of post-PMN bona fide submissions (per Sec. Sec.  720.25 and 
721.11), the Agency believes that it is highly unlikely that any of the 
significant new uses described in the regulatory text of this rule are 
ongoing.
    As discussed in the April 24, 1990 SNUR, EPA has decided that the 
intent of TSCA section 5(a)(1)(B) is best served by designating a use 
as a significant new use as of the date of publication of this direct 
final rule rather than as of the effective date of the rule. If uses 
begun after publication were considered ongoing rather than new, it 
would be difficult for EPA to establish SNUR notification requirements 
because a person could defeat the SNUR by initiating the significant 
new use before the rule became effective, and then argue that the use 
was ongoing before the effective date of the rule. Thus, persons who 
begin commercial manufacture, import, or processing of the chemical 
substances regulated through this SNUR will have to cease any such 
activity before the effective date of this rule. To resume their 
activities, these persons would have to comply with all applicable SNUR 
notification requirements and wait until the notice review period, 
including any extensions expires.
    EPA has promulgated provisions to allow persons to comply with this 
SNUR before the effective date. If a person meets the conditions of 
advance compliance under Sec.  721.45(h), the person is considered 
exempt from the requirements of the SNUR.

VIII. Test Data and Other Information

    EPA recognizes that TSCA section 5 does not require developing any 
particular test data before submission of a SNUN. The two exceptions 
are:
    1. Development of test data is required where the chemical 
substance subject to the SNUR is also subject to a test rule under TSCA 
section 4 (see TSCA section 5(b)(1)).
    2. Development of test data may be necessary where the chemical 
substance has been listed under TSCA section 5(b)(4) (see TSCA section 
5(b)(2)).
    In the absence of a TSCA section 4 test rule or a TSCA section 
5(b)(4) listing covering the chemical substance, persons are required 
only to submit test data in their possession or control and to describe 
any other data known to or reasonably ascertainable by them (see Sec.  
720.50). However, upon review of PMNs and SNUNs, the Agency has the 
authority to require appropriate testing. Unit IV. lists recommended 
testing for non-5(e) SNURs. Descriptions of tests are provided for 
informational purposes. EPA strongly encourages persons, before 
performing any testing, to consult with the Agency pertaining to 
protocol selection. To access the OCSPP test guidelines referenced in 
this document electronically, please go to http://www.epa.gov/ocspp and 
select ``Test Methods and Guidelines.''
    The recommended tests specified in Unit IV. may not be the only 
means of addressing the potential risks of the chemical substance. 
However, submitting a SNUN without any test data may increase the 
likelihood that EPA will take action under TSCA section 5(e), 
particularly if satisfactory test results have not been obtained from a 
prior PMN or SNUN submitter. EPA recommends that potential SNUN 
submitters contact EPA early enough so that they will be able to 
conduct the appropriate tests.

[[Page 75396]]

    SNUN submitters should be aware that EPA will be better able to 
evaluate SNUNs which provide detailed information on the following:
     Human exposure and environmental release that may result 
from the significant new use of the chemical substances.
     Potential benefits of the chemical substances.
     Information on risks posed by the chemical substances 
compared to risks posed by potential substitutes.

IX. Procedural Determinations

    By this rule, EPA is establishing certain significant new uses 
which have been claimed as CBI subject to Agency confidentiality 
regulations at 40 CFR part 2 and 40 CFR part 720, subpart E. Absent a 
final determination or other disposition of the confidentiality claim 
under 40 CFR part 2 procedures, EPA is required to keep this 
information confidential. EPA promulgated a procedure to deal with the 
situation where a specific significant new use is CBI, at 40 CFR 
721.1725(b)(1).
    Under these procedures a manufacturer, importer, or processor may 
request EPA to determine whether a proposed use would be a significant 
new use under the rule. The manufacturer, importer, or processor must 
show that it has a bona fide intent to manufacture, import, or process 
the chemical substance and must identify the specific use for which it 
intends to manufacture, import, or process the chemical substance. If 
EPA concludes that the person has shown a bona fide intent to 
manufacture, import, or process the chemical substance, EPA will tell 
the person whether the use identified in the bona fide submission would 
be a significant new use under the rule. Since most of the chemical 
identities of the chemical substances subject to these SNURs are also 
CBI, manufacturers, importers, and processors can combine the bona fide 
submission under the procedure in Sec.  721.1725(b)(1) with that under 
Sec.  721.11 into a single step.
    If EPA determines that the use identified in the bona fide 
submission would not be a significant new use, i.e., the use does not 
meet the criteria specified in the rule for a significant new use, that 
person can manufacture, import, or process the chemical substance so 
long as the significant new use trigger is not met. In the case of a 
production volume trigger, this means that the aggregate annual 
production volume does not exceed that identified in the bona fide 
submission to EPA. Because of confidentiality concerns, EPA does not 
typically disclose the actual production volume that constitutes the 
use trigger. Thus, if the person later intends to exceed that volume, a 
new bona fide submission would be necessary to determine whether that 
higher volume would be a significant new use.

X. SNUN Submissions

    According to Sec.  721.1(c), persons submitting a SNUN must comply 
with the same notification requirements and EPA regulatory procedures 
as persons submitting a PMN, including submission of test data on 
health and environmental effects as described in Sec.  720.50. SNUNs 
must be submitted on EPA Form No. 7710-25, generated using e-PMN 
software, and submitted to the Agency in accordance with the procedures 
set forth in Sec. Sec.  721.25 and 720.40. E-PMN software is available 
electronically at http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/newchems.

XI. Economic Analysis

    EPA has evaluated the potential costs of establishing SNUN 
requirements for potential manufacturers, importers, and processors of 
the chemical substances subject to this rule. EPA's complete economic 
analysis is available in the docket under docket ID number EPA-HQ-OPPT-
2012-0842.

XII. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. Executive Order 12866

    This rule establishes SNURs for several new chemical substances 
that were the subject of PMNs. The Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) has exempted these types of actions from review under Executive 
Order 12866, entitled ``Regulatory Planning and Review'' (58 FR 51735, 
October 4, 1993).

B. Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)

    According to PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not 
conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a 
collection of information that requires OMB approval under PRA, unless 
it has been approved by OMB and displays a currently valid OMB control 
number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations in title 40 of 
the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register, are listed in 40 CFR 
part 9, and included on the related collection instrument or form, if 
applicable. EPA is amending the table in 40 CFR part 9 to list the OMB 
approval number for the information collection requirements contained 
in this rule. This listing of the OMB control numbers and their 
subsequent codification in the CFR satisfies the display requirements 
of PRA and OMB's implementing regulations at 5 CFR part 1320. This 
Information Collection Request (ICR) was previously subject to public 
notice and comment prior to OMB approval, and given the technical 
nature of the table, EPA finds that further notice and comment to amend 
it is unnecessary. As a result, EPA finds that there is ``good cause'' 
under section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B)) to amend this table without further notice and 
comment.
    The information collection requirements related to this action have 
already been approved by OMB pursuant to PRA under OMB control number 
2070-0012 (EPA ICR No. 574). This action does not impose any burden 
requiring additional OMB approval. If an entity were to submit a SNUN 
to the Agency, the annual burden is estimated to average between 30 and 
170 hours per response. This burden estimate includes the time needed 
to review instructions, search existing data sources, gather and 
maintain the data needed, and complete, review, and submit the required 
SNUN.
    Send any comments about the accuracy of the burden estimate, and 
any suggested methods for minimizing respondent burden, including 
through the use of automated collection techniques, to the Director, 
Collection Strategies Division, Office of Environmental Information 
(2822T), Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW., 
Washington, DC 20460-0001. Please remember to include the OMB control 
number in any correspondence, but do not submit any completed forms to 
this address.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RAF)

    On February 18, 2012, EPA certified pursuant to RFA section 605(b) 
(5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), that promulgation of a SNUR does not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
where the following are true:
    1. A significant number of SNUNs would not be submitted by small 
entities in response to the SNUR.
    2. The SNUR submitted by any small entity would not cost 
significantly more than $8,300.
A copy of that certification is available in the docket for this rule.

    This rule is within the scope of the February 18, 2012 
certification. Based on the Economic Analysis discussed in Unit XI. and 
EPA's experience promulgating SNURs (discussed in the certification), 
EPA believes that the following are true:
     A significant number of SNUNs would not be submitted by 
small entities in response to the SNUR.

[[Page 75397]]

     Submission of the SNUN would not cost any small entity 
significantly more than $8,300.

Therefore, the promulgation of the SNUR would not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)

    Based on EPA's experience with proposing and finalizing SNURs, 
State, local, and Tribal governments have not been impacted by these 
rulemakings, and EPA does not have any reasons to believe that any 
State, local, or Tribal government will be impacted by this rule. As 
such, EPA has determined that this rule does not impose any enforceable 
duty, contain any unfunded mandate, or otherwise have any effect on 
small governments subject to the requirements of UMRA sections 202, 
203, 204, or 205 (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.).

E. Executive Order 13132

    This action will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on 
the relationship between the national government and the States, or on 
the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels 
of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, entitled 
``Federalism'' (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999).

F. Executive Order 13175

    This rule does not have Tribal implications because it is not 
expected to have substantial direct effects on Indian Tribes. This rule 
does not significantly nor uniquely affect the communities of Indian 
Tribal governments, nor does it involve or impose any requirements that 
affect Indian Tribes. Accordingly, the requirements of Executive Order 
13175, entitled ``Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments'' (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), do not apply to this 
rule.

G. Executive Order 13045

    This action is not subject to Executive Order 13045, entitled 
``Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks'' (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because this is not an 
economically significant regulatory action as defined by Executive 
Order 12866, and this action does not address environmental health or 
safety risks disproportionately affecting children.

H. Executive Order 13211

    This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211, entitled 
``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001), because 
this action is not expected to affect energy supply, distribution, or 
use and because this action is not a significant regulatory action 
under Executive Order 12866.

I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA)

    In addition, since this action does not involve any technical 
standards, NTTAA section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note), does not apply to 
this action.

J. Executive Order 12898

    This action does not entail special considerations of environmental 
justice related issues as delineated by Executive Order 12898, entitled 
``Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority 
Populations and Low-Income Populations'' (59 FR 7629, February 16, 
1994).

XIII. Congressional Review Act

    Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), 
EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required 
information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and 
the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of 
the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' 
as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

Sec.  721.10629  Fatty acids, tall-oil, reaction products with modified 
fatty acids and polyalkanolamines (generic).

    (a) Chemical substance and significant new uses subject to 
reporting. (1) The chemical substance identified generically as fatty 
acids, tall-oil, reaction products with modified fatty acids and 
polyalkanolamines (PMN P-09-107) is subject to reporting under this 
section for the significant new uses described in paragraph (a)(2) of 
this section.
    (2) The significant new uses are:
    (i) Release to water. Requirements as specified in Sec.  
721.90(a)(4), (b)(4), and (c)(4) (N=110).

5. Add Sec.  721.10630 to subpart E to read as follows:


Sec.  721.10630  Amino acid, carboxyalkyl, alkylsulfonate, alkali salt 
(generic).

    (a) Chemical substances and significant new uses subject to 
reporting. (1) The chemical substances identified generically as amino 
acid, carboxyalkyl, alkylsulfonate, alkali salts (PMNs P-11-619 and P-
11-620) are subject to reporting under this section for the significant 
new uses described in paragraph (a)(2) of this section.
    (2) The significant new uses are:
    (i) Release to water. Requirements as specified in Sec.

calculating the surface water concentrations according to the 
instructions in Sec.  721.90(a)(4), (b)(4), and (c)(4), the statement 
that the amount of the substances that will be released will be 
calculated before the substances enter control technology does not 
apply. Instead, if the waste stream containing the substances will be 
treated before release, then the amount of the substances reasonably 
likely to be removed from the waste stream by such treatment may be 
subtracted in calculating the number of kilograms released. No more 
than 90 percent removal efficiency may be attributed to such treatment.
