TSCA Deadline for PIP 3:1 Extended to March 2022

TSCAOn September 3, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the extension of certain compliance dates for the PIP 3:1 substance regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

The effective date for the prohibition on the processing and distribution of PIP 3:1 is now March 8, 2022. Previously the effective date was September 4, 2021.

Additionally, the EPA announced its intention to issue a proposal for a new separate rulemaking on all five persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) chemicals in the spring of 2023. However, the current provisions of the January 2021 risk management rules, including the PIP 3:1 deadline extension, remain in effect while the EPA is working on this new rulemaking effort.

The changes aim to “address the hardships inadvertently created by the original applicable compliance dates in the January 2021 final rule to ensure that supply chains are not disrupted for key consumer and commercial goods.”
