The submission period for the 2016 CDR will be from June 1, 2016, to Sept. 30, 2016. Requirements regarding reporting thresholds and eligibility for certain exemptions are being phased in for the 2016 CDR submission period.

EPA ChemView — How to Obtain Information on Chemicals Regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act
Thursday, Oct.8, 2015
Noon - 1:00 p.m. EDT
Presented by Doug Parsons, Special Assistant, Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
EPA launched a new web-based tool, ChemView, to improve access to chemical-specific regulatory information developed in the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics and data submitted under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). ChemView is a publicly accessible, one-stop, easy-to-use, multi-search web tool to find and use chemical hazard and use information developed under TSCA. This new tool enables users to view information in both summary form (data loaded into templates with consistent format) and source documents (e.g. FR or scientific documents) for which links are included. ChemView provides more streamlined access to EPA assessments, regulatory documents like Significant New Use Rules (SNURs), hazard characterizations, information on safer chemical ingredients, and also links to information on manufacturing, processing, use, and release data reported under the Chemical Data Reporting Rule, and the Toxics Release Inventory.
The webinar will provide an overview of the types of information in ChemView, a demonstration on how to use the search tools, a discussion of EPA's next steps to continue to build the site, and an opportunity to provide feedback on the information that would be most useful to include. Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
Chemical Safety and Security Executive Order Update
Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015
Noon - 1:00 pm EDT
Presented by Jennifer C. Gibson, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, NACD
In August 2013, in response to the West Fertilizer explosion that occurred in April of that year, President Obama issued Executive Order 13650 — Improving Chemical Safety and Security. Since that time, federal agencies, particularly the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), have taken measures to expand regulatory requirements for the chemical industry, including distributors. Please join NACD on Thursday, Oct. 29 at Noon EDT for a webinar during which NACD Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Jennifer Gibson will discuss these developments and their impact on NACD members. Highlights will include OSHA's recent actions to expand the scope of its Process Safety Management regulation through a series of enforcement memorandums and EPA's potential changes to the Risk Management Program regulations. NACD staff has been on the front lines of these activities and will provide the latest information on changes that have already occurred and what to expect in the coming months. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
