Question # 154

154. Will chemicals be added to or subtracted from the EPCRA section 313 chemical substance list?
Yes. The EPCRA lists have evolved since the statute was passed in 1986. As more information has become available on the hazards and toxicity of chemicals, EPA has responded by identifying chemicals to be added to or taken off the EPCRA lists; EPA expects to continue this activity. When chemicals are added to or taken off the EPCRA lists, EPA always publishes a notice in the Federal Register. The most recent instruction booklet for completing the Form R contains the updated chemical list. To obtain information on the latest additions or deletions from the list of EPCRA section 313 chemicals contact the EPCRA Hotline at 1-800-424-9346.
