As required under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued five (5) final rules on January 6, 2021 to reduce exposures to certain chemicals that are persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) (the “Rules”). These chemicals build up in the environment over time and may result in potential risk to exposed populations, including the general population, consumers and commercial users, and susceptible subpopulations (such as workers, subsistence fishers, tribes and children).
The Rules limit or prohibit the manufacture (including import), processing, and/or distribution in commerce (including within articles) of the following PBT chemicals:
- Decabromodiphenyl ether (DecaBDE)
- Phenol, Isopropylated Phosphate 3:1 (PIP 3:1)
- 2, 4, 6-tris(tert-butyl)phenol (2, 4, 6-TTBP)
- Hexachlorobutadiene (HCBD)
- Pentachlorothiophenol (PCTP)
