PFAS TSCA Reporting Update – March 2024

The Clarity to Come – PFAS TSCA Reporting Update

With the new year, many companies, both small and large, who have manufactured or imported per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and/or PFAS-containing articles, for commercial use, are gearing up to prepare their records to report them to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). As discussed in PFAS and TSCA – The OMG Reporting Hoop the Hoops, which appeared in the December issue of The Standard, under the finalization of Rule 88 FR 70516, the US EPA is requiring these businesses to retroactively provide information, from January 1, 2011 to current, such as PFAS use, volumes, byproducts, disposal, exposures, and hazards. With reporting time constraints varying anywhere from 18 to 24 months, many businesses have felt the pressure of the rule and its uncertainty. Especially since, many of these businesses have never had obligations to report this kind of information.

Thankfully, the US EPA appears to have come to this realization and intends to provide additional guidance in the upcoming months. Meanwhile, Environmental Standards is ready to help clients navigate the requirements set forth by the ruling and has compiled a list of information to help begin providing some clarity.
