The Environmental Protection Agency is ‘proposing significant new use rules (SNURs) under the Toxic Substances Control Act for 66 chemical substances which were the subject of premanufacture notices… This action would require persons who intend to manufacture (defined by statute to include import) or process any of these 66 chemical substances for an activity that is proposed as a significant new use to notify [the Environmental Protection Agency] at least 90 days before commencing that activity.’ Notifying the Environmental Protection Agency will allow the agency ‘to assess risks that may be presented by the intended uses and, if appropriate, to regulate the proposed use before it occurs .’
