US Customs, in conjunction with EPA, is proposing to amend the regulations regarding the requirement to file a Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) certification when importing chemicals into the United States as follows:

  1. Revise/clarify the definitions of “chemical substance”, “chemical substance in bulk form” and  ‘‘chemical substances, mixtures, or articles’’
  2. Provide an electronic option for filing TSCA certifications in ACE
  3. Eliminate the existing paper-based blanket certification process.
  4. Allow importers to provide electronic notice of exportation and abandonment as an alternative to the paper-based written notice process allowed under the existing regulations
