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:
- Revise/clarify the definitions of “chemical substance”, “chemical substance in bulk form” and ‘‘chemical substances, mixtures, or articles’’
- Provide an electronic option for filing TSCA certifications in ACE
- Eliminate the existing paper-based blanket certification process.
- 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
