EPAs Modified Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Rule
Entities that manufacture (defined as byproduct or import) chemical substances for commercial purposes, produced in volumes of 25,000 lbs or more, at a site during the principal reporting year may be required to report. The EPA is currently providing "additional information on byproduct reporting” and the scope of the CDR obligation to report.
The 2012 CDC submission period is scheduled to occur from February 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012. Such submission should report 2011 manufacturing, processing and use, as well as 2010 production volume information. After this 2012 reporting, the submission period shifts to June 1 to September 30, at four-year intervals, beginning in 2016.
Submitters are required to use e-CDR web, which is EPA's electronic reporting tool.
