Chemical Data Reporting & TSCA Compliance For Chemical Importers

Caltha LLP provides technical support services to chemical import companies to assist in developing and implementing compliance management programs. This includes:

Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Rule
Chemical importers are regulated like chemical manufacturers under the TSCA Chemical Data Reporting Rule. Every four years, importers of chemicals are required to submit Form U disclosing chemical import quantities for chemical substances. The current reporting period is July 1 through September 30, 2016, covering calendar years 2012-2015.

TSCA Compliance
In addition to CDR reporting, importers are required to certify each shipment of chemicals is in compliance with the federal Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Caltha provides ad hoc technical services to review shipments to confirm TSCA requirements are being met.

Hazardous Material Storage Notification
Sections 302 and 311 of the federal Emergency Planning & Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) require importers that store chemical substances to file notifications with local and State agencies. Caltha assists importers in determining what chemical storage needs to be reported and to prepare the required submittals.

DOT Hazardous Material Rule Compliance
Caltha provides technical support to importers that ship or transport materials that are regulated at hazardous materials (or “HazMat”). Caltha provides initial and reoccurring training to HazMat employees to maintain DOT HazMat certifications.
