TSCA Rule On Cadmium and Cadmium Compounds Withdrawn

EPA is withdrawing the final Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 8(d) Health and Safety Data Reporting Rule that it issued on December 3, 2012. The health and safety data reporting rule would have required manufacturers (including importers) of cadmium or cadmium compounds, including as part of an article, that have been, or are reasonably likely to be, incorporated into consumer products to report certain unpublished health and safety studies to EPA. Since the final rule's issuance, EPA has received a number of letters, including requests for withdrawal, asking questions and raising concerns about the scope and extent of the immediate final rule that indicate that there is significant confusion and uncertainty about the final rule in certain industrial sectors subject to the final rule. EPA believes that some of the points raised in the letters warrant additional consideration by the Agency.
