→ Reporting requirements for mercury inventory

Comments Close:

The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing reporting requirements for any person who manufactures (including imports) mercury or mercury-added products, or otherwise intentionally uses mercury in a manufacturing process. The information collected will be used to prepare an 'inventory of mercury supply, use, and trade in the United States.' This proposed action is per the Toxic Substances Control Act, and will ultimately allow the agency to 'identify any manufacturing processes or products that intentionally add mercury; and.. recommend actions... to achieve further reductions in mercury use.'
