WASHINGTON (May 17, 2023) – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) released the following statement today in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed New Chemicals Program Procedural Rule:

“A well-functioning, reliable and efficient TSCA New Chemicals program is foundational to manufacturing the new and innovative products and materials we rely upon every day, including chemistries critical to semiconductors, clean energy, EV’s, solar and wind here in the United States.

“Upon a quick initial review, EPA’s proposal looks to include a codification of approaches the Agency is already taking in its implementation of the New Chemicals Program. That said, we plan to review the proposal further and provide detailed comments to the public docket. It is also critical that EPA and the Executive Branch ensure that the TSCA New Chemicals program policies do not negatively affect the supply chain and manufacturer’s ability to bring new and innovative products and materials to market.

“Ultimately, EPA must expeditiously improve the timeliness and predictability for new chemicals reviews, enhance Agency engagement with TSCA submitters and the regulated community, maintain critical exemptions, and provide clear and concise direction on what information is required of new chemical submitters.”
