US EPA final rule for thirty FRs

The US EPA has published new information requirements for TBBPA, TCEP, TPP and for 30 halogenated flame retardants. The new final rule under TCSA (US Toxic Substances Control Act), three FRs* (TBBPA = brominated, TCEP = chlorinated, TPP = organophosphate ester) are identified as “high priority substances” requiring submission of all published and unpublished studies to EPA. The new final rule also lists thirty halogenated flame retardants for which information is requested to support evaluation and prioritisation by EPA under TCSA and by CPSC under FHSA (Consumer Product Safety Commission, Federal Hazardous Substances Act).

* TBBPA = tetrabromobisphenol A. TCEP = Tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate. TPP = triphenyl phosphate.
