	HIGHLIGHTS OF 2016 TSCA CHEMICAL DATA REPORTING (CDR)
•	The determination of the need to report is based on production volume during any
calendar year since the last principal reporting year (i.e., 2012-2015).
•	Information on the reportable chemical substance must be reported during the 2016 CDR
submission period, June 1, 2016 to September 30, 2016 (40 CFR 711.20).
•	All reporting companies must report CDR data electronically, using e-CDRweb, the CDR
web-based reporting tool, and EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX) system. Prior to
submitting data, submitters must register with CDX.
•	Reporting is required for all chemical substances listed on the TSCA Inventory, both
organic and inorganic, other than polymers, microorganisms, naturally occurring
chemical substances, certain forms of natural gas, and water (40 CFR 711.5 and 711.6)
when manufacture (including import) of those chemical substances meets the other
reporting requirements. Chemical substances that are the subject of any of certain listed
TSCA actions may not be eligible for partial or full exemptions (40 CFR 711.6).
•	The separate reporting threshold for submitting processing and use information has been
eliminated. Manufacturers (including importers) reporting to CDR are required to report
processing and use data, for calendar year 2015, for all reportable chemical substances
when the reporting threshold of 25,000 lb (or 2,500 lb if the subject of certain TSCA
actions) is met at any site during any calendar year during the submission period (i.e.,
2012-2015) (40 CFR 711.15(b)).
•	The reporting threshold is 2,500 lb (1,134 kg) for any person who manufactured a
chemical substance that is the subject of a rule proposed or promulgated under TSCA
section 5(a)(2), 5(b)(4) or 6; an order issued under TSCA section 5(e) or 5(f); or relief
that has been granted under a civil action under TSCA section 5 or 7. The effects of these
TSCA actions on CDR reporting are assessed based on the status of the chemical
substance as of the beginning of the submission period, June 1, 2016 (40 CFR 711.8(b)
and 40 CFR 711.15).
•	Small manufacturers are exempt from CDR requirements unless they manufacture
(including import) 2,500 lb or more of a chemical substance that is the subject of a rule
proposed or promulgated under sections 4, 5(b)(4), or 6 of TSCA, or is the subject of an
order in effect under section 5(e) of TSCA, or is the subject of relief that has been granted
under a civil action under sections 5 or 7 of TSCA (40 CFR 711.9 and TSCA §
8(a)(3)(A)(ii)).
•	Information submitted under CDR may be claimed as confidential; however, such claims
must be made at the time of submission and substantiated in accordance with the CDR
rule. Submitters must provide upfront substantiation of confidentiality claims for
processing and use information as well as for confidentiality claims for site or chemical
identity. A blank response or a response that is designated as "not known or reasonably
ascertainable" may not be claimed as confidential (40 CFR 711.30).
•	Visit the CDR Web site (www.ena.sov/cdr) for program updates and announcements,
other guidance materials for 2016 reporting, and contact information for technical
assistance.

PREFACE
The primary goal of this document is to help the regulated community comply with the
requirements of the CDR rule. This document does not substitute for that rule, nor is it a rule
itself. It does not impose legally binding requirements on the regulated community or on the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Manufacturers (including importers) are required by the CDR rule to report to EPA
information concerning the manufacturing, processing, and use of certain chemical substances
listed on the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory. The CDR requirements have changed since
the last collection, which occurred in 2012 and was based on 2011 production data.
Manufacturers (including importers) are subject to the revised reporting requirements based on
manufacturing (including importing) activities conducted since the last principal reporting year
(i.e., calendar years 2012-2015).
The 2016 submissions are due by September 30, 2016, and must be submitted via the
Internet using e-CDRweb and EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX). e-CDRweb is a web-based
reporting tool that allows manufacturers (including importers) to file a paperless CDR
submission and receive instant receipt confirmation of their submissions. Electronic reporting is
expected to significantly reduce errors in the reported data. User guides focused solely on
Instructions for using CDX and eCDRweb are available under the Instructions & guidance tab
on the How To Report Under Chemical Data Reporting page of the CDR website.
This instructions document contains the following chapters and appendices:
•	Chapter 1 - Introduction to the CDR and changes made since the 2012 reporting cycle.
•	Chapter 2 - Reporting requirements to determine which chemical substances are reportable,
who must report, and what information must be reported.

Introduction
1. Introduction
1.1 Background and Statutory Authority
In 1977, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated a rule under the
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 8(a), 15 U.S.C. 2607(a), to compile and keep
current an inventory of chemical substances in commerce in the United States. This inventory is
called the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory (TSCA Inventory). In 1986, EPA promulgated
the Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule, also under TSCA section 8(a), to facilitate the
periodic updating of the TSCA Inventory and to support activities associated with implementing
TSCA. The IUR rule has been amended since 1986, most recently in 2011.
As part of the 2011 IUR Modifications final rule (Modifications rule), EPA changed the
identification of the regulation from IUR to Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) and moved the
codified rule from 40 CFR Part 710 to 40 CFR Part 711. Throughout these Instructions, EPA has
retained the use of the term "IUR" to reflect historical terminology and uses the term "CDR" to
describe the revised reporting requirements.
Some of the changes promulgated in the Modifications rule are being implemented for
the first time during the 2016 reporting. These include changes to reporting thresholds and the
requirement to report production volume for all calendar years during the reporting period.
Due to the Modifications rule, EPA requires electronic submission of CDR data over the
Internet using the e-CDRweb reporting tool and EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX). EPA's
CDX is the point of entry on the Environmental Information Exchange Network for
environmental data submissions to the Agency. It allows you to file a paperless CDR
submission, significantly reducing data errors, and receive instant receipt confirmation of your
submission.
This document pertains to CDR reporting during 2016. It provides detailed information
and examples to assist manufacturers (including importers) in reporting under the CDR rule.
Sample screenshots of the e-CDRweb tool are provided throughout this document to guide you
through the completion of your Form U. These screenshots are not based on actual data, but
are hypothetical situations generated to assist submitters in completing Form U. Appendix
A provides a glossary of CDR terms, which may help you to understand the 2016 reporting
requirements.
This document is not a substitute for the CDR rule in 40 CFR Part 711. To the extent
that any inconsistencies exist between the CDR rule and this document, the requirements as
promulgated in the rule should be followed. You should carefully review 40 CFR Part 711 to
determine whether you are required to report information under the CDR rule.
To comply with the CDR rule, it is important to have a thorough understanding of the
TSCA Inventory and the procedures available to determine whether a chemical substance is
listed on the TSCA Inventory. Chapter 5 of this document explains how you can obtain copies of
TSCA rules, including the CDR rule, and access the non-confidential TSCA Inventory.

Chapter 1
Introduction
1.2 Changes to CDR Requirements for 2016
In 2011, EPA changed the 2006 IUR requirements by promulgating the IUR
Modifications rule. Most of the changes came into effect for the 2012 submission; however, a set
of changes is being implemented for the first time for the 2016 submission. This section
summarizes the changes that are new for 2016. More specific information is provided in the
relevant chapters of this instruction manual.
Requirement to report - consider all calendar years since last principal reporting year
Reporting is triggered if the annual reporting threshold is met during any of the calendar
years since the last principal reporting year. For the 2016 submission period, this involves
separately considering the volumes of a chemical substance manufactured (including imported)
at a single site during the calendar years 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, because 2011 was the last
principal reporting year. (See Sections 2.2.1 and 2.2.2.)
Reduced reporting thresholds for chemical substances that are the subject of certain TSCA
actions
Reporting is generally necessary for substances whose manufactured (including
imported) volume was 25,000 lb (11,340 kg) or more at a single site during a calendar year from
2012 to 2015. However, a lower threshold applies for a chemical substance that is the subject of
certain TSCA actions. For such chemicals, reporting is required if the volume manufactured
(including imported) at a site is 2,500 lb (1,134 kg) or more. (40 CFR 711.8(b)) The following
TSCA actions trigger the reduced reporting threshold:
•	A rule proposed or promulgated under TSCA section 5(a)(2), 5(b)(4), or 6
•	An order in effect under TSCA section 5(e) or 5(f)
•	Relief that has been granted under a civil action under TSCA section 5 or 7 (see Section
2.2.2.)
The same reporting threshold applies for manufacturing and for processing and use activities
Once the need to report is triggered due to either 25,000 lb (11,340 kg) or 2,500 lb (1,134
kg), as applicable, the manufacturer (including importer) reports information relating to
manufacturing, processing, and use activities for that chemical substance. (40 CFR 711.15(b)).
There is no longer a separate threshold for reporting processing and use information.
Information relating to processing and use activities is reported for the principal reporting
year only. For the 2016 CDR reporting period, 2015 is the principal reporting year.
Chemicals specifically listed in 40 CFR 711.6(b) are partially exempted from CDR
requirements; manufacturers are not required to report information relating to processing and use
activities for those substances. (See Section 2.3.)

Chapter 1
Introduction
Report total annual volume manufactured (including imported) for four different years
For a site, manufacturers (including importers) report the total annual production volume
for each year since the last principal reporting year. For 2016, the manufacturer (including
importer) reports the total production volume (domestically manufactured plus imported) for
2012, 2013, and 2014. For 2015, the manufacturer (including importer) separately reports the
domestically manufactured and imported production volumes. (40 CFR 711.15(b)) (See Section
4.7.5.)
The need to report production volume for all years since the last principal reporting year
is new for 2016; for 2012, reporting for 2010 and 2011 only was required and, previous to 2012,
reporting for only the principal reporting year (e.g., 2005) was required.

Reporting Requirements
2. Reporting Requirements
This chapter explains the reporting requirements for the 2016 CDR reporting cycle. CDR
reporting requirements apply to manufacturers (including importers) of chemical substances.
The term 'chemical substance' is defined in Appendix A.
For the 2016 submission period, manufacturers (including importers) are required to use
e-CDRweb, the CDR reporting tool, and EPA's CDX to create an electronic version of Form U
and to submit information in response to the requirements of the CDR rule. (40 CFR Part 711)
You must register with CDX to submit online, and you must register the name of the company
on whose behalf you are submitting a Form U. EPA will no longer accept paper submissions or
electronic media (diskette, CD-Rom, etc.) for any CDR submission. (40 CFR 711.35)
If you reported under the 2012 CDR, you should review the reporting requirements
carefully because they have changed. You may be required to report information on chemical
substances for which you did not need to report in previous IUR or CDR reporting cycles.
You should consider the following three steps to determine whether you are required to report
for each chemical substance that you domestically manufacture (including import) into the
United States during each year since the last principal reporting year (i.e., consider
calendar years 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015):
•	Step 1: Is your chemical substance subject to the CDR rule?
•	Step II: Are you a manufacturer (including importer) who is required to report?
•	Step III: What information must you report?
This chapter discusses each of these steps and the associated reporting requirements in
more detail.
2.1 Step I: Is Your Chemical Substance Subject to the CDR Rule?
Under the CDR rule, reporting for the 2016 CDR
reporting cycle is generally required for a chemical substance
that is manufactured (including imported), is on the TSCA
Inventory as of June 1, 2016, and is not specifically exempted
by 40 CFR 711.6(a). The term "CDR reportable chemical
substance" will be used throughout this document to refer to a
chemical substance that fulfills these requirements. Figure 2-1
presents a decision logic diagram to assist you in determining
whether you manufacture a CDR reportable chemical substance.
The following subsections explain each question in greater
detail.
A CDR reportable
chemical substance is a
chemical substance that is
domestically manufactured
or imported into the United
States, is listed in the TSCA
Inventory, and is not
specifically exempted by 40
CFR 711.6(a).

Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
2.1.1 Is Your Chemical Substance Manufactured for Commercial Purposes? (Question A)
The first step in determining your reporting requirements is to determine whether you
meet the definition of manufacture or manufacturer. The following manufacturing-related terms
are defined below:
•	Manufacture - To manufacture, produce, or import for commercial purposes.
Manufacture includes the extraction, for commercial purposes, of a component chemical
substance from a previously existing chemical substance or complex combination of
chemical substances. When a chemical substance, manufactured other than by import, is:
(1)	produced exclusively for another person who contracts for such production, and
(2)	that other person specifies the identity of the chemical substance and controls the
total amount produced and the basic technology for the plant process, then that
chemical substance is co-manufactured by the producing manufacturer and the person
contracting for such production (40 CFR 711.3).
•	Manufacture for commercial purposes - (1) To import, produce, or manufacture with
the purpose of obtaining an immediate or eventual commercial advantage for the
manufacturer, and includes among other things, such "manufacture" of any amount of a
chemical substance or mixture:
(i)	For commercial distribution, including for test marketing.
(ii)	For use by the manufacturer, including use for product research and
development, or as an intermediate.
(2) Manufacture for commercial purposes also applies to chemical substances that are
produced coincidentally during the manufacture, processing, use, or disposal of
another chemical substance or mixture, including both byproducts that are separated
from that other substance or mixture and impurities that remain in that chemical
substance or mixture. Such byproducts and impurities may, or may not, in themselves
have commercial value. They are nonetheless produced for the purpose of obtaining a
commercial advantage since they are part of the manufacture of a chemical product
for a commercial purpose (40 CFR 704.3).
•	Manufacturer - A person who manufactures a chemical substance (40 CFR 711.3).
Thus, the manufacture of a chemical substance by a toll manufacturer is considered
manufacturing, even in instances where another person is also considered to be manufacturing
that chemical substance by contract (see Section 2.1.1.1). Both the toll manufacturer and the
contracting party would be considered the co-manufacturers of the chemical substance.
For purposes of the CDR rule, a chemical substance is manufactured (including
imported) only if it is manufactured (including imported) for commercial purposes. See TSCA
Section 8(f), TSCA Section 3(7), and 40 CFR 704.3, which includes a parallel definition of
"Import for commercial purposes." As identified above, the term manufacture for commercial
2-3

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
purposes means that the chemical substance is produced for the purpose of obtaining a
commercial advantage. Manufacture for commercial purposes also applies to chemical
substances that are produced coincidentally during the manufacture, processing, use, or disposal
of another chemical substance or mixture, including both byproducts that are separated and
impurities that remain in a chemical substance or mixture. (40 CFR 704.3)
2.1.1.1	Manufacturing by Contract
The person who contracts with another person, such as a toll manufacturer, to
manufacture a chemical substance is considered to be the co-manufacturer, along with the toll
manufacturer of that chemical substance.
As specified in the definition for manufacture, manufacturing by contract is a situation
where the contracted person manufactures or produces the chemical substance exclusively for the
contracting person, and where the contracting person specifies the identity of the chemical
substance and controls the total amount produced and the basic technology of the plant process.
Additional information, including specific toll manufacturing reporting scenarios, is provided in
Fact Sheet: Toll Manufacturing.
2.1.1.2	Changes to Company Ownership or Legal Identity
Under 40 CFR 711.8(a), the reporting obligation falls to the "person who manufactured."
EPA recognizes that in some cases, business transactions occurring during the submission period
have led to questions about who is now the "person who manufactured." The scenarios in Fact
Sheet: Reporting After Changes to Company Ownership or Lesal Identity are intended to serve
as a general aid in appropriately resolving these questions, but they will not necessarily account
for all the relevant circumstances of a particular transaction. It is ultimately the manufacturer's
responsibility to report appropriately under CDR, notwithstanding the complexity of its own
business transactions.
2.1.1.3	Byproducts and Impurities
Byproducts
Byproducts are chemical substances that are produced without a separate commercial
intent during the manufacture, processing, use, or disposal of another chemical substance(s) or
mixture(s) (40 CFR 704.3). If the byproduct is manufactured (including imported) in a volume
of 25,000 lb (or 2,500 lb if it is the subject of certain TSCA actions) or more at a single site
during the principal reporting year, then its manufacture (including import) is potentially subject
to CDR requirements. Figure 2-1 presents a decision logic diagram to assist you in determining
whether you manufacture a byproduct that is a CDR reportable chemical substance.
Byproducts may or may not, in themselves, have commercial value. They are
nonetheless produced for the purpose of obtaining a commercial advantage because they are part
of the manufacture of a chemical product for a commercial purpose. Thus, chemical substances
that are the byproducts of the manufacture, processing, use, or disposal of another chemical
substance or mixture, like any other manufactured chemical substance, are subject to CDR
reporting if they are listed on the TSCA Inventory, are not otherwise excluded from reporting,
and their manufacturers are not specifically exempted from CDR requirements.

Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
There are, however, conditions under which
byproducts are not required to be reported. If, after
it is manufactured (including imported), your
byproduct chemical substance is not put to use for a
separate commercial purpose (see 40 CFR 711.10(c)
and 40 CFR 720.30(h)), you do not need to report it.
If your byproduct's only separate commercial
purpose "is for use by public or private organizations
that (1) burn it as a fuel, (2) dispose of it as a waste,
including in a landfill or for enriching soil, or (3)
extract component chemical substances from it for
commercial purposes" (see 40 CFR 720.30(g)), then
that byproduct is also excluded from CDR reporting.
This exclusion applies only to the byproduct; it does
not apply to the component chemical substances
extracted from the byproduct.
In interpreting section 40 CFR 720.30(g),
you should consider the following important points.
Can a byproduct be manufactured
if the main product is an article?
Yes, potentially. You need to
consider whether you are
manufacturing a chemical substance
as a byproduct when you are
manufacturing an article. For
example, if your use or processing of
a chemical substance (chemical A) to
manufacture an article coincidentally
produces a different chemical
substance (chemical B), apart from
the article you intended to
manufacture, then you have
manufactured a byproduct chemical
substance. This situation may occur,
for example, when you are stripping a
chemical substance off of a part of the
article, and the stripping process
results in the formation of a different
chemical substance (possibly
resulting in a "used" stripping
solution).
Regarding 40 CFR 720.30(g)(1), note that
where that same quantity of a byproduct is
burned as a fuel, and is also being burned for
other non-exempt commercial purposes (e.g.,
if the combustion residue is used as a process input), then the exemption under 40 CFR
720.30(g)(1) would not apply. To provide a specific example: in a paper pulping process,
black liquor is burned to generate power, and it then undergoes a chemical change to
become manufactured smelt. The smelt is then used as a process inputs in the
manufacture of white liquor which is then returned to the pulping process. The
exemption under 40 CFR 720.30(g)(1) would not apply to the manufacture of the black
liquor because the black liquor's post-combustion commercial purposes include non-
exempt commercial purposes. If a certain amount of the black liquor was instead burned
solely to generate power and a separate amount was used for a non- exempt commercial
purpose, the exemption under 40 CFR 720.30(g)(1) would have applied only to the
amount burned solely to generate power. If the black liquor were instead incinerated
solely for destruction, the exemption under 40 CFR 720.30(h)(2) would have applied.1
1 This example has been further clarified to illustrate the application of the 40 CFR 720.30(g)(1) exemption when
other uses are involved.
2-5

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
•	Regarding 40 CFR 720.30(g)(2), although the
manufacture of a byproduct is not reportable
if the byproduct is subsequently disposed of
as a waste for purposes of enriching the soil
(e.g., to change the soil properties in a
desirable way, such as by serving as a filler to
make the soil less dense or enhancing
moisture retention), a substance used as a
fertilizer is not necessarily an excluded
byproduct. For instance, if the substance's
ordinary manner of use is as a fertilizer, then
the substance is not a byproduct in the first
place, and the provisions at 40 CFR 720.30(g)
are inapplicable.
•	Regarding 40 CFR 720.30(g)(3), individual
component chemical substances extracted
from a byproduct are reportable substances if
they are extracted for a commercial purpose, even if the manufacture of the byproduct
itself is not reportable pursuant to 720.30(g).
A "component chemical substance" means a chemical substance that already exists in the
byproduct. If the recycling process involves breaking chemical bonds or forming new
chemical bonds to convert a chemical substance in the byproduct into a different
chemical substance (which is then extracted), then the recycling process does not count
as extracting a component chemical substance of the byproduct. Note: In circumstances
where other substances in the byproduct are chemically reacted in order to facilitate the
separation of a desired component chemical substance, such that the component
chemical substance itself is not chemically changed before being extracted, then the
process does constitute an extraction of the unchanged component chemical substance.
You should note that your byproduct may have a separate commercial purpose even if
you do not intentionally commercialize it. You may be sending the byproduct, which you
consider a waste, to another person or site. If that other person or site uses your byproduct in
such a manner that it has a commercial purpose, then you are potentially required to report the
byproduct for purposes of CDR (assuming you meet other reporting requirements such as
production volume and the chemical substance is not otherwise exempted from reporting).
It is important to properly identify your byproduct chemical substance. Byproducts are
formed by a reaction, and, generally, EPA considers each combination of substances resulting
from a reaction to be either:
1.	A mixture, composed of two or more well-defined chemical substances to be named
and listed separately; or
2.	A reaction product, or combination of chemicals from a reaction, to be listed as a
single chemical substance, using one name that collectively describes the products or
the reactants used to make the products. This type of byproduct is typically
complex.
2-6
Is there a distinction for CDR
byproduct reporting when a
byproduct is burned for fuel or
incinerated as a waste?
Any distinction between burning a
byproduct as a fuel or incinerating it
as a waste is generally not relevant
under the CDR. This is because the
CDR exempts both byproducts whose
"only commercial purpose" is for
burning as a fuel (40 CFR
720.30(g)(1)), and byproducts that
are "not used for commercial
purposes" (40 CFR 720.30(h)(2)).
This latter category would include
incineration, solely for destruction.

2. Is your byproduct then used lor a
separate commercial purpose?
(40 CFR 711.10(c) and
40 CFR 720.30(h))
1. Did you manufacture
(40 CFR 711.3) a byproduct for
commercial purposes?
(40 CFR 704.3)

/B. To dispose of the byproducts
as a waste, including in a landfill or
for enriching soil?
\ (40 CFR 720.30(g)(2)) /
For example, incineration
solely for destruction is
not considered to be a
commercial purpose.
3. Is your byproduct exempt from reporting because its only commercial purpose is covered by one or more of the following?
* A "component chemical substance" means a chemical substance that already exists in the byproduct. If the recycling
process involves breaking chemical bonds or forming new chemical bonds to convert a chemical substance in the byproduct
into a different chemical substance (which is then extracted), then the recycling process docs not count as extracting a
component chemical substance of the byproduct.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO REPORT
You may have
manufactured a CDR
reportable chemical
substance.

QUESTION B.
Figure 2-2. Decision Logic Diagram for Evaluating Whether a Byproduct Chemical
Substance is Subject to the CDR Rule
Complex byproducts can be identified as a single chemical substance that represents the
process stream. Complex chemical substances are listed on the TSCA Inventory as chemical
substances of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products and Biological
materials ("UVCB" chemical substances). In such cases, it is not necessary to determine the
volumes of the individual chemicals that comprise the UVCB chemical substance; rather, the
single UVCB chemical substance name is proper. Further information on UVCB chemical
substances is available on the EPA website at www.eva.sov/tsca-inventory/chemical-substances-
unknown-or-variable-composition-complex-reaction-products-and.
2-7

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
Although complex byproducts may be named as a single UVCB chemical substance, in
certain circumstances it may be appropriate to treat a product combination as a mixture of
chemical substances or even just a single well-defined chemical substance, even though there are
uncharacterized components to the mixture. Specifically, where the submitter has a factual basis
to reasonably conclude that the uncharacterized components are exempt from CDR irrespective
of their chemical identity, a lack of information about the chemical identity of those exempt
components is not an obstacle to treating the remainder of the product combination as a mixture
for CDR purposes. Thus, for example, where a submitter reasonably concludes (after
considering all the facts known and reasonably ascertainable) that the uncharacterized
components of a byproduct will not be used for commercial purposes after they are
manufactured (or if the only commercial purpose is for one of the uses listed in 40 CFR
720.30(g)), for CDR purposes the submitter may treat the byproduct as the remaining
component, or as a mixture of the remaining components. The submitter then considers the need
to report for the remaining component(s).
By contrast, where a submitter has not characterized certain components of a product
combination or byproduct stream, and lacks the basis to conclude that those components are
necessarily exempt from CDR, it is not appropriate to treat that product combination or
byproduct stream as a mixture. For example, if a submitter cannot reasonably assess whether or
not an uncharacterized fraction of its byproduct will be subsequently used for a commercial
purpose, it is likely that the submitter will need to treat that byproduct as a single UVCB
chemical substance for CDR purposes.
Below are a few examples describing byproduct reporting. Additional information about
byproduct reporting under CDR is provided on the CDR website at www.ena.sov/cdr.
Example 2-1. For example, a manufacturing process involving the use of solvent A results
in spent solvent A. Depending upon the specific manufacturing scenario, there are two
different ways that the manufacturer could characterize spent solvent A. How the reclaimed
solvent A is reported is dependent upon the manufacturer's characterization for TSCA.
1.	Spent solvent A is characterized as a mixture of individual chemical substances: In
this case, separating solvent A from the mixture is not considered manufacturing,
and the manufacturer does not report for CDR purposes the recycled solvent A.
Note that, depending upon what is done with the remaining portion of the mixture,
any components of the mixture that were manufactured may need to be individually
reported.
2.	Spent solvent A is characterized as a manufactured UVCB chemical substance: In
this case, the solvent A extracted from the spent solvent A is also considered to be
manufactured, and therefore is reportable for purposes of CDR. In this situation, the
UVCB chemical substance itself may be exempt for purposes of CDR. (40 CFR
720.30(g)(3))
2-8

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
A byproduct that is manufactured for a commercial purpose and, after manufacture, is used for a
separate commercial purpose, may be excluded from reporting under CDR by 40 CFR
720.30(g)(2). 40 CFR 720.30(g)(2) states that if the byproduct's only commercial purpose is for
use by public or private organizations that dispose of it as a waste, including in a landfill or for
enriching soil, the byproduct is exempt from being reported under CDR.
Example 2-2. Efforts to comply with other Federal, state, or municipal rules, such as
the use of pollution control devices, may also result in the manufacture of reportable
chemical substances. For example, an energy company may operate a sulfur recovery
plant as a pollution control device to minimize sulfur oxides emissions. The sulfur
recovery plant generates elemental sulfur, a chemically different chemical substance
from sulfur oxides. The sulfur therefore has been manufactured for a commercial
purpose because it is a chemical substance formed from the byproduct sulfur oxides
emissions, which is an activity conducted for the commercial purpose of operating a
power plant. If the elemental sulfur is then used for a commercial purpose (other than
those listed in 40 CFR 720.30(g)), the energy company may incur reporting
obligations under the CDR rule for the byproduct sulfur oxides as well as for the
sulfur.
Examples 2-3 and 2-4 describe manufacturers that may be subject to RCRA requirements and
how the 720.30(g)(2) byproduct exemption applies in these circumstances.
Example 2-3. Company ABC manufactures a byproduct. The byproduct does not qualify
as a RCRA hazardous waste and does not meet the requirements of any exemption in 40
CFR 261.4. The manufacturer wishes to dispose of the byproduct, which can be used to
enrich soil (e.g., to change the soil properties in a desirable way like serving as a filler to
make the soil less dense or enhancing moisture retention). Company ABC provides this
byproduct to another person who then disposes of it as a waste by spreading it on land to
enrich the soil. If this disposal of the byproduct is the byproduct's sole commercial use, the
byproduct qualifies for the CDR reporting exemption under 40 CFR 720.30(g)(2).
Company ABC is not subject to reporting under the CDR, respecting the manufacture of its
byproduct.
Example 2-4. Company ABC manufactures Byproduct X, which is not considered a
RCRA solid waste because it serves as a feedstock to produce a zinc fertilizer and meets
the requirements of 40 CFR 261,4(a)(20) (i.e., it is a hazardous secondary material used
to make zinc fertilizers). The zinc fertilizer that is produced meets the requirements of
40 CFR 261.4(a)(21). Byproduct X is not being disposed of as a waste and therefore
does not meet the CDR byproduct exemption at 40 CFR 720.30(g)(2). Company ABC
is subject to reporting under the CDR, respecting the manufacture of its byproduct.
If your byproduct is manufactured (including imported) for commercial purposes, and it
is subsequently put to use for a commercial purpose other than those listed in 40 CFR 720.30(g),
you may be required to report this chemical substance and should evaluate Question B on Figure
2-1 (see also Section 2.1.2).
2-9

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
Impurities
An impurity is a chemical substance which is unintentionally present with another
chemical substance (40 CFR 704.3). Although impurities may be produced for the purpose of
obtaining a commercial advantage because they are part of the manufacture of a chemical
product for a commercial purpose, they are not manufactured for distribution in commerce as
chemical substances per se and have no commercial purpose separate from the chemical
substance, mixture, or article of which they are a part. Thus a chemical substance that is
manufactured or imported solely as an impurity is not subject to the CDR reporting
requirements. See 40 CFR 720.30(h)(1).
2.1.2 Is Your Chemical Substance on the TSCA Inventory? (Question B)
The following subsections provide information to help you determine whether your
chemical substance is listed on the TSCA Inventory.
2.1.2.1	What is the TSCA Inventory?
Authorized by section 8(b) of TSCA, the TSCA Inventory is a list of chemical substances
manufactured (including imported) for commercial purposes in the United States. The TSCA
Inventory was compiled originally in the late 1970s; chemical substances have been added
continually through EPA's New Chemicals Program. EPA keeps a Master Inventory File, which
is the authoritative list of all the chemical substances reported to EPA for inclusion on the TSCA
Inventory. Information on how to access the non-confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory
file, commonly referred to as the "public TSCA Inventory," is available at www,epa.sov/tsca-
inventory. The public TSCA Inventory contains chemical substances for which the identity is not
considered confidential and the generic identification of chemical substances for which the
specific identity has been claimed as TSCA Confidential Business Information (CBI). The TSCA
Inventory status of chemical substances can also be determined from EPA's Substance Registry
Services (SRS), available at www.epa.gov/srs. See Section 2.1.3 for information about chemical
substances that may be potentially exempt from reporting.
2.1.2.2	How Do You Determine Whether a Chemical Substance is Listed on the TSCA
Chemical Substance Inventory?
The following methods may help you determine whether your chemical substance is
listed on the TSCA Inventory:
•	Locate the chemical substance on the public section of the TSCA Inventory (see Chapter
5 for information on obtaining the TSCA Inventory);
•	Search SRS for information on the TSCA Inventory listing status (note that you can
search the SRS directly by accessing the website at www.ena.gov/srs or by using the
CDR reporting tool);
•	Search company records to determine whether the chemical substance was
previously reported to EPA under CDR;
•	Search company records for a commenced PMN or other communication with EPA that
2-10

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
confirmed the chemical substance was on the TSCA Inventory; and
•	Search company records for a Notice of Commencement of manufacture or import for a
PMN substance that was submitted to EPA.
The last three methods may be particularly helpful if your chemical substance is listed on
the confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory.
Several commercial databases have incorporated the public section of the TSCA
Inventory (which excludes chemical substances with confidential identities) and can indicate
whether a given chemical substance is listed on that portion of the TSCA Inventory. Because
these databases are not generated or reviewed by EPA, the Agency cannot guarantee the
accuracy of the information. If you use a commercial database that fails to include all reportable
chemical substances and, as a result, you fail to report information for these chemical substances,
you may be in violation of TSCA (40 CFR 711.1(c)).
The CDR reporting related to mixtures and UVCB substances (chemical substances that
are of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products, or Biological materials)
requires careful consideration by submitters. Whenever a submitter has manufactured or
imported a combination of several chemicals, the
submitter must first determine whether for TSCA
purposes it is a mixture or a single UVCB chemical
substance. A mixture is any combination of
chemicals that meets the statutory definition of
"mixture" at TSCA section 3(8). (See Appendix A).
Mixtures are not reported to CDR - rather the
mixture's component chemical substances, the
chemical substances that make it up, are potentially
subject to reporting, as described below. A UVCB
substance is an indefinite combination of chemicals,
that does not meet the statutory definition of
"mixture" at TSCA section 3(8), whose number and individual identities and/or composition are
not precisely or completely known. A UVCB combination of chemicals is subject to reporting
under CDR and is considered a single chemical substance. Generally, the determination of
whether a combination of chemicals is a mixture or a UVCB substance is made by the time that
substance has been commercialized and, as such, would be clear early in the CDR process. The
following discussion is presented with this generality in mind.
•	If you imported a mixture, you will need to report the individual chemical components of
the mixture to the extent that your total volume for the individual chemical substance
triggers reporting (i.e., generally, to the extent that such volume reaches the reporting
threshold, 25,000 lb or 2,500 lb if the subject of certain TSCA actions).
•	If you domestically manufactured a mixture, you will need to determine whether any
chemical substances were formed from a chemical reaction that occurred as part of
manufacturing the mixture. If a chemical reaction has occurred, a chemical substance
formed from the chemical reaction may be subject to reporting, based on its production
volume or the applicability of other exemptions. If a chemical reaction has not occurred,
2-11
Hydrates are mixtures of the
corresponding non-hydrated chemical
substance and water and, therefore,
are not listed on the TSCA Inventory.
Note that you may be required to
report the corresponding non-
hydrated component chemical
substance. Adjust the reported
production volume to exclude water.

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
you have not manufactured any reportable chemical substances in the production of the
mixture. In such a case, the production of the mixture has not triggered any CDR
reporting requirement.
•	Domestic manufacturers and importers should also consider whether the combination of
the chemicals they have domestically manufactured or imported (respectively) should be
chemically identified for TSCA purposes as a single UVCB chemical substance instead
of a mixture.
EPA has developed two Inventory nomenclature guidance documents related to the mixture-
UVCB determination:
•	Toxic Substances Control Act Inventory Representation for Chemical Substances of
Unknown or Variable Composition, Complex Reaction Products and Biological
Materials: UVCB Substances. Available online at:
www.epa.sov/sites/production/files/2015-05/documents/uvcb.pdf;
•	Toxic Substances Control Act Inventory Representation for Combinations of Two or
More Substances: Complex Reaction Products. Available on-line at:
www.epa.sov/sites/production/files/2015-05/documents/rxnprods.pdf
Example 2-5. Company X manufactures 100,000 lb of magnesium sulfate heptahydrate,
which is considered under TSCA to be a mixture of magnesium sulfate and water. The non-
hydrous portion of the magnesium sulfate heptahydrate mixture, magnesium sulfate,
constitutes 48,838 lb, which exceeds the 25,000 lb threshold. Therefore, Company X is
required to report 48,838 lb of magnesium sulfate under the CDR rule.
In the event that you are not able to find your chemical substance on the TSCA
Inventory, contact the TSCA Hotline at (202) 554-1404 for assistance to determine whether
reporting is required. If your chemical substance is on the TSCA Inventory, you should review
Question C on Figure 2-1 (Section 2.1.3) to determine whether you qualify for any other
reporting exemptions.
2.1.3 Is Your Chemical Substance Potentially Exempt from Reporting? (Question C)
Five groups or categories of chemical substances, though included on the TSCA
Inventory, are largely exempt from reporting under the CDR rule. These groups are polymers,
microorganisms, certain forms of natural gas,
naturally occurring chemical substances, and
water. Sections 2.1.3.1 through 2.1.3.5 provide
more details for each group of chemical
substances. You may also refer to 40 CFR
711.6(a) for precise definitions of these groups.
Note, however, that these exempted chemical
substances (except for chemical substances that
are exempted because they are naturally occurring) become subject to reporting again if they are
the subject of any of certain TSCA actions. Section 2.1.4 provides details for when the
exemption does not apply. Note that the act of importing does not change the identity of a
chemical substance or group. For example, a naturally occurring chemical substance remains
Polymers, microorganisms, certain
forms of natural gas, and water are
not exempted from reporting when
they are the subject of any certain
TSCA actions. See Section 2.1.4 for

Reporting Requirements
naturally occurring when it is imported.
To help identify chemical substances that are exempt from reporting under the CDR rule,
EPA has labeled most of these chemical substances on the TSCA Inventory with the letters
"XU." In the SRS, most of these chemical substances are identified as being "TSCA CDR
Exempt" under the Statutes/Regulations heading. This and other flags are embedded into the
Substance Registry Services (SRS) chemical lookup within the current edition of e-CDRweb
reporting tool and have been updated to reflect the 2016 reporting requirements. When the
chemical lookup function is used, and the selected chemical has been assigned a special flag, the
reporting tool will display a notice on the screen indicating the exemption status of the chemical.
Please note that you are advised to use the flags only as a guide; you are responsible for verifying
whether a chemical substance listed on the TSCA Inventory is exempt from reporting.
If your chemical substance is not in one of the following five categories of chemical substances,
it is a CDR reportable chemical substance and you should review Step II of the reporting
requirements (Section 2.2, Figure 2-3). If your chemical substance is in one of the five
categories, you should review Question D (Section 2.1.4).
2.1.3.1	Polymers
Polymers are in most cases exempt from CDR reporting. The CDR definition of polymer
is sufficiently broad to include virtually all those chemical substances that are generally
considered polymers. The definition also includes siloxanes and silicones, silsesquioxanes,
rubber, lignin, polysaccharides (such as starch and gums), proteins (such as gelatin and
hemoglobin), and enzymes. However, for chemical substances that result from hydrolysis,
depolymerization, or chemical modification of polymers, regardless of the extent of these
processes, if the final products are no longer polymeric (e.g., a mixture of amino acids that is the
result of hydrolysis of a polypeptide), the chemical substances are not considered to be polymers
and must be reported if not otherwise excluded (40 CFR 711.6(a)(1)). See Appendix A or 40
CFR 711.6(a)(1) for the specific definition of polymers for purposes of the CDR rule.
2.1.3.2	Microorganisms
Microorganisms are exempt from CDR reporting. A microorganism is any combination
of chemical substances that is a living organism and that meets the definition of
"microorganism" at 40 CFR 725.3. Any chemical substance produced from a living
microorganism is reportable unless otherwise excluded (40 CFR 711.6(a)(2)).
2.1.3.3	Certain Forms of Natural Gas
Table 2-1 identifies certain forms of natural gas that are exempt from CDR reporting (see
40 CFR 711.6(a)(4)).

2.1.3.4 Naturally Occurring Substances
Chemical substances that are described in 40 CFR 710.4(b) of the TSCA Inventory
Reporting Regulations are considered "naturally occurring." Such chemical substances are not
reportable under CDR if the chemical substance is produced solely by means described in
section 710.4(b). Examples of chemical substances that are typically naturally occurring
materials are raw agricultural commodities, water, air, crude oil, rocks, ores, and minerals.
However, because the section 710.4(b) exemption is process-specific rather than chemical-
specific, if you manufacture any chemical substance in a manner other than just as described in
section 710.4(b), you are required to report it unless it is otherwise exempted (40 CFR
711.6(a)(3)). For this reason, minerals and certain agricultural products are sometimes
considered not to be naturally occurring because of the means by which they are produced or
isolated. Whether a chemical substance is considered "naturally occurring" depends on the
manner in which it is produced and isolated. Table 2-2 presents some examples of evaluating
chemical substances for the naturally occurring chemical substance exemption.
Table 2-2. Examples of Evaluating Chemical Substances for the Naturally Occurring
Exemption (40 CFR 711.6(a)(3))
•
Calcined clays formed by heating naturally occurring clay typically must be reported because such heating is
generally not done solely to remove water; a chemical change is primarily intended.
•
Chemical substances that are removed/isolated from nature by physical or natural means are typically
considered to be "naturally occurring." Using water to extract a chemical substance from a naturally occurring
chemical substance is considered a natural means of removal. However, using any other solvent is not
considered a natural means of removal and would result in the extracted chemical substance being potentially
subject to reporting.
•
In an electrostatic separation, small particles are removed from a liquid or gas stream. The process is
essentially analogous to gravitational separation. Chemical substances that are processed by this means are
considered to be "naturally occurring."
•
Mined coal is typically included in the naturally occurring chemical substances category.
•
Ammonia and nitric acid are generally produced by chemical synthesis and are, therefore, generally not
considered to be "naturally occurring."
2.1.3.5 Water
Water, including both naturally occurring water and manufactured water (CASRN 7732
18-5), is exempt from CDR reporting.
2-14

Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
2.1.4 Is your Chemical Substance Ineligible for an Exemption Because it is the Subject of
Certain TSCA Actions? (Question D)
With the exception of naturally occurring chemical substances, chemical substances must be
reported if they are the subject of any of the following (even if the chemical substance is
otherwise exempt, (40 CFR 711.6)):
•	A rule proposed or promulgated under Sections 4, 5(a)(2),5(b)(4), or 6 of TSCA;\
•	An order issued under TSCA Sections 5(e) or 5(f);
•	Relief that has been granted under a civil action under TSCA Sections 5 or 7; or
•	An enforceable consent agreement (ECA) under 40 CFR Part 790.
See Appendix B for an overall chart that describes the effects on CDR requirements of the
different TSCA actions.
Example 2-6. Company A manufactured 35,000 lb of Chemical X, a polymer, in 2014.
Chemical X is part of an enforceable consent agreement (ECA) between EPA and Company
A, in which Company A is performing additional testing on Chemical X. Although Chemical
X is a polymer that normally would be exempt from CDR reporting, it is part of an ECA and,
thus, Company A is required to report Chemical X for the 2016 CDR. Additionally,
Company B manufactures 40,000 lb of Chemical X in 2015. Although Company B is not a
party to the ECA, Company B is also required to report Chemical X for the 2016 CDR.
Special flags are used throughout the TSCA Inventory to identify those substances on the
Inventory that are the subject of an EPA rule or order promulgated under TSCA, as well as to
indicate the types of full or partial exemptions from TSCA reporting requirements. These flags
are embedded into the Substance Registry Services (SRS) chemical lookup within the current
edition of e-CDRweb reporting tool and have been updated to reflect the 2016 reporting
requirements. When the chemical lookup function is used, and the selected chemical has been
assigned a special flag, the reporting tool will display a notice on the screen indicating the TSCA
action or exemption status of the chemical. Please note that you are advised to use the flags only
as a guide; you are responsible for verifying whether a chemical substance listed on the TSCA
Inventory is exempt from reporting or ineligible for exemption from reporting. If you have
determined that your chemical substance is a CDR reportable chemical substance, evaluate Step
II on Figure 2-3 to determine whether you are a manufacturer (including importer) who is
required to report.

2.2 Step II: Are You a Manufacturer Who Is Required to Report?
If you determined from Step I that you manufacture (including import) a CDR reportable
chemical substance, Figure 2-3 presents a decision logic diagram that may help you determine
whether you are a manufacturer (including importer) who must then report. The following
subsections explain each question in greater detail.
STEP II:
Are you a manufacturer who is required to report?
E. Did you

2.2.1	Did You Manufacture (Including Import) 25,000 lb or More of the Chemical
Substance at a Single Site During any of the Calendar Years since the Last Principal
Reporting Year? (Question E)
You are subject to CDR reporting if you manufactured (including imported) a chemical
substance in production volumes of 25,000 lb or greater at any single site you owned or
controlled during any calendar year since the last CDR principal reporting year. (A reduced
reporting threshold of 2,500 lb now applies to chemical substances subject to certain TSCA
actions - see Section 2.2.2.) For the 2016 CDR, the last principal reporting year was 2011.
Therefore, you need to consider production for calendar years 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. If
you both domestically manufacture and import the same chemical substance, add the
domestically manufactured and imported volumes at each site for a calendar year to determine
whether the amount of the chemical substance meets or exceeds the 25,000 lb threshold during
that calendar year. Do not subtract the volume of chemical substance directly exported. The site
at which a chemical substance is imported is described in 40 CFR 711.3 and Section 4.4.1 of this
document.
Information about determining production volumes for mixtures is provided at the end of
Section 2.2.2.
2.2.2	Did You Manufacture (Including Import) 2,500 lb or More of the Chemical
Substance (if it is the Subject of Certain TSCA Actions? (Question F)
Under 40 CFR 711.8(b) and 40 CFR 711.15, the reporting threshold is 2,500 lb (1,134
kg) for any person who manufactured a chemical substance that is the subject of any of the
following TSCA actions:
•	A rule proposed or promulgated under TSCA section 5(a)(2), 5(b)(4) or 6
•	An order issued under TSCA section 5(e) or 5(f)
•	Relief that has been granted under a civil action under TSCA section 5 or 7
See Appendix B for assistance in determining whether your chemical substance is the subject of
certain TSCA actions.
You are subject to CDR reporting if you manufactured (including imported) a chemical
substance which is subject to a TSCA action listed above in production volumes of 2,500 lb or
greater at any single site you owned or controlled during any calendar year since the last CDR
principal reporting year. For the 2016 CDR, the last principal reporting year was 2011.
Therefore, you need to consider production for calendar years 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. If
you both domestically manufacture and import the same chemical substance, add the
domestically manufactured and imported volumes at each site for a calendar year to determine
whether the amount of the chemical substance meets or exceeds the 2,500 lb threshold during
that year. Do not subtract the volume of chemical substance directly exported. The site at which
a chemical substance is imported is described in 40 CFR 711.3 and Section 4.4.1 of this
document.
Table 2-3 provides examples of how the production volume threshold applies.

Reporting Requirements
Substances that have undergone a change in TSCA regulatory status from 2012 to June
1,2016
•	The effects of TSC A actions on CDR reporting are assessed based on the status of the
chemical substance as of the beginning of the submission period, when the reporting
obligation becomes current. For reporting obligations in 2016 that depend on whether
a chemical substance "is the subject of a listed action, consider the status of a
chemical substance as of June 1, 2016.
•	A change in TSCA regulatory status does not mean that submitters should apply
different reporting thresholds to manufacture occurring before and after the effective
date of the action. Only one reporting threshold applies to a chemical substance for
the 2016 CDR. The correct reporting threshold is determined based on the chemical
substance's status as of June 1, 2016.
Table 2-3. Production Volume Threshold Examples
Description
2016 Reporting Kc(|iiiiviiioiil
Company A, which has only one manufacturing site,
manufactured 26,000 lb of Chemical X, which is not
exempt from reporting, at its site in 2013.
Company A must report for Chemical X because
it manufactured 25,000 lb or more of Chemical X
at its sole manufacturing site in 2013.
Company B, which has only one manufacturing site,
manufactured 26,000 lb of Chemical X at its site in 2012
and 20,000 lb of Chemical X in 2014.
Company B is required to report for Chemical X
because it manufactured more than 25,000 lb of
Chemical X in 2012.
Company C has two manufacturing sites for Chemical X.
In 2012 through 2015, Site 1 manufactured 13,000 lb per
year of Chemical X and Site 2 manufactured 15,000 lb
per year. Chemical X is not the subject of any of the
TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b).
The 25,000-lb threshold is applicable for Chemical
X. Company C is not required to report for
Chemical X at either site because production was
less than 25,000 lb at each site during all the years
in the reporting period.
Company D has two manufacturing sites for Chemical X.
In 2012 through 2015, Site 1 manufactured 10,000 lb per
year of Chemical X and Site 2 manufactured 150,000 lb
per year of Chemical X. Chemical X is not the subject of
any of the TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b).
The 25,000-lb threshold is applicable for Chemical
X. Company D must report for Chemical X at Site
2 because at this location production was 25,000 lb
or more. Company D is not required to report for
Chemical X for Site 1 because production was less
than 25,000 lb during all the years in the reporting
period.
Company E has one site where it imports and
manufactures Chemical X. Company E manufactured
21,000 lb of Chemical X and imported 5,000 lb of
Chemical X in 2015.
Company E must report for Chemical X because
the aggregate volume manufactured at and
imported by its site in 2015 was 25,000 lb or more.
Company F has one site where it manufactured 30,000 lb
of Chemical X in 2012. The company directly exported
25,000 lb of Chemical X and sold the remaining 5,000 lb
in the United States.
Company F must report for Chemical X because
it manufactured over 25,000 lb in 2012. The
amount directly exported does not affect the
determination of the need to report.

Description
2016 Reporting Kc(|iiiiviiioiil
Company G manufactured 5,000 lb of Chemical Z per year
during 2012 through 2015. Chemical Z is subject to a TSCA
section 4 test rule with a sunset date of June 30, 2016.
Chemical Z is not the subject of any of the TSCA actions
listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b).
Company G is not required to report for Chemical
Z. Chemical Z is subject to the 25,000 lb
reporting threshold, because a TSCA section 4
test rule is not a TSCA action which triggers use
of the reduced reporting threshold (i.e., it is not
one of the actions listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b)).
A TSCA section 5(a)(2) significant new use rule (SNUR) is
issued for Chemical Y in 2013. The annual production
volumes for Chemical Y by Company H are 1,000 lb in
2012, 10,000 lb in 2013, 5,000 lb in 2014, and 2,000 lb in
2015.
As of the beginning of the submission period
(June 1, 2016), Chemical Y is a chemical
substance that is the subject of a TSCA section
5(a)(2) SNUR; therefore, a reduced reporting
threshold of 2,500 lb would apply. Because the
2,500 lb reporting threshold was exceeded at least
once from 2012 to 2015, Company H must report
for Chemical Y.
A TSCA section 5(a)(2) SNUR was issued for Chemical Y
in 2013 and revoked in February 2016. Chemical Y is not
currently the subject of any of the TSCA actions listed in 40
CFR 711.8(b). The annual production volumes for Chemical
Y by Company H are 1,000 lb in 2012, 10,000 lb in 2013,
5,000 lb in 2014, and 2,000 lb in 2015.
As of the beginning of the submission period on
June 1, 2016, the SNUR is no longer in effect.
Therefore, the reporting threshold for Chemical Y
is 25,000 lb. Because the production volume did
not meet or exceed 25,000 lb in at least one year
from 2012 to 2015, Company H is not required to
report for Chemical Y.
A proposed TSCA section 5(a)(2) SNUR for Chemical P is
published in the Federal Register on August 1, 2016.
Chemical P is not currently the subject of any of the other
TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b). The annual
production volumes for Chemical P by Company J are
2,000 lb in 2012, 20,000 lb in 2013, 2,500 lb in 2014, and
12,000 lb in 2015.
As of the beginning of the 2016 submission
period on June 1, 2016, Chemical P is not the
subject of a proposed or promulgated SNUR.
Therefore, the 2016 CDR reporting threshold for
Chemical P is 25,000 lb. Publication of the SNUR
after June 1, 2016 would not cause the 2016 CDR
reporting threshold to change during the 2016
submission period. Because the production
volume did not meet or exceed 25,000 lb in at
least one year from 2012 to 2015, Company J is
not required to report for Chemical P.
Meeting the Reporting Thresholdfor Chemical Substances in Mixtures
In many cases, reportable chemical substances are components of a mixture. Although
mixtures themselves are not reportable, the 25,000 lb (or 2,500 lb threshold if the subject of
certain TSCA actions) is applicable for each CDR reportable chemical substance comprising a
mixture; therefore, the chemical substances making up a mixture may individually be
reportable. If you manufacture chemical substances as part of a mixture, you would determine
your CDR reporting requirements by following Questions A-F (Sections 0 through 2.2.2) for
each chemical substance in the mixture. As described in Section 2.1.2.2, hydrates are mixtures
of the corresponding non-hydrated chemical substance and water.
UVCB Chemical Substances: Note that, under TSCA, a complex combination of
chemical substances is in most cases considered to be a single UVCB chemical substance. In
such cases, reporting is triggered based on the volume of the UVCB chemical substance
manufactured (that is, the whole entity), and not based on the volume of individual chemical
components which may be present in the UVCB chemical substance. See Section 2.1.1.3 for
2-19

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
further discussion of UVCB chemical substances.
Imported Mixtures: As an importer (see 40 CFR 704.3) of a mixture of chemical
substances listed on the TSCA Inventory, you must determine whether the individual component
chemical substances of a mixture are reportable. To do so, you would determine whether the
annual aggregated volume of a particular reportable chemical substance was 25,000 lb or 2,500
lb or more at the site that controls the importation. The threshold volume is applicable for each
CDR reportable chemical substance in a mixture. You can determine the production volume for
each chemical substance in the mixture that you imported during a particular calendar year by
using the weight and percent composition of the chemical substance in the mixture. For each
imported chemical substance, you would aggregate the volume of the chemical substance in all
annual imports associated with the reporting site as defined in 40 CFR 711.3 and add the amount
of the chemical substance domestically manufactured at the same site, if any, to determine
whether the total volume of the chemical manufactured (including imported) meets the 25,000 lb
or 2,500 lb threshold. Note that a chemical substance that is imported solely in small quantities
for research and development, as an impurity, or as part of an article or in a manner described in
40 CFR 720.30(g) and (h) is not subject to the CDR reporting requirements (40 CFR 711.10).
If you have determined that you are manufacturing a CDR reportable chemical substance
and meet the applicable reporting threshold of 25,000 lb (or 2,500 lb if subject to certain TSCA
actions), evaluate Question G to determine whether you qualify for a small manufacturer
exemption.
2.2.3 Do You Qualify For a Small Manufacturer Exemption? (Question G)
You qualify as a small manufacturer if you meet either of the following criteria (40 CFR
704.3):
•	Your total sales during the principal reporting year (2015), combined with those of your
parent company, domestic or foreign (if any), are less than $4 million regardless of
annual production volume.
•	Your total sales during the principal reporting year (2015), combined with those of your
parent company, domestic or foreign (if any), are less than $40 million and your annual
production volume of that chemical substance does not exceed 100,000 lb at any
individual plant site. If the annual production volume of the chemical substance at any of
your sites is more than 100,000 lb, you are required to report only for those sites. Note
that under this criterion, it is possible to qualify as a small manufacturer with respect to
some chemical substances and not others or with respect to some sites and not others.
For purposes of the definition of a small manufacturer, total annual sales include all
sales of the company, not just the total sales of a given chemical substance.
If you have determined that you are a small manufacturer of a CDR reportable chemical
substance, evaluate Question H (described in the next section) to determine whether you are
exempt from any reporting.
If you do not qualify for a small manufacturer exemption, evaluate Question I in Figure
2-20

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
2-3 (further described in Section 2.2.5) to determine whether you qualify for any other reporting
exemptions.
2.2.4 Did You Manufacture a Chemical Substance that is the Subject of Certain TSCA
Actions? (Question H)
Small manufacturers are exempt from CDR requirements unless they manufacture
(including import) a chemical substance that is the subject of a rule proposed or promulgated
under sections 4, 5(b)(4), or 6 of TSCA, or is the subject of an order in effect under section 5(e)
of TSCA, or is the subject of relief that has been granted under a civil action under sections 5 or
7 of TSCA (40 CFR 711.9 and TSCA § 8(a)(3)(A)(ii)).The SRS provides information regarding
which chemical substances fall into these groups. Table 2-4 provides examples of how the
small manufacturing exemption applies.

Description
201(> Reporting Ri(|uimiun(
Site 1, which is one of several sites owned by Company A,
had a production volume of 120,000 lb of Chemical X in
2013. The total annual sales of Company A (all sites
combined) were $1.25 million in 2015.
Site 1 is not required to report for Chemical X
because combined sales in 2015 did not exceed $4
million.
Site 2, which is one of several sites owned by Company B,
had a production volume of 90,000 lb of Chemical X in
2012, 75,000 lb in 2013, 82,000 in 2014, and 95,000 in
2015. The total annual sales of Company B (all sites
combined) were $20 million in 2015. None of the other sites
produce Chemical X.
Site 2 is not required to report for Chemical X
because annual production volume of that chemical
substance did not exceed 100,000 lb at any of
Company B's sites during 2012-2015, and
Company B had total annual sales of less than $40
million.
Site 3, which is one of several sites owned by Company C,
had a production volume of 200,000 lb per year of Chemical
X in 2012 through 2015. Site 4, another site owned by
Company C, had a production volume of 75,000 lb per year
of Chemical X in 2012 through 2015. The total annual sales
of Company C (all sites combined) were $30 million in
2015.
Company C must report for Chemical X at Site 3
because annual production volume at Site 3
exceeded 100,000 lb in at least one year from 2012
to 2015. Company C is not required to report for
Chemical X at Site 4 because annual production
volume at site 4 did not exceed 100,000 lb and total
annual sales was less than $40 million.
Site 5, which is one of several sites owned by Company D,
had a production volume of 50,000 lb of Chemical X in
2014. The total annual sales of Company D (all sites
combined) were $100 million in 2015.
Company D must report for Chemical X at Site 5
because total annual sales in 2015 exceeded $40
million and the production volume of Chemical X
at Site 5 exceeded 25,000 lb in at least one year
from 2012 to 2015.
Site 6, which is one of several sites owned by Company E,
had a production volume of 120,000 lb of Chemical X in
2012. The total annual sales of Company E (all sites
combined) were $1.25 million in 2015. Chemical X is
subject to a section 4 test rule.
Site 6 is required to report for Chemical X. Even
though combined sales are less than $4 million, this
chemical substance is subject to a test rule and
therefore must be reported.

Site 7, owned by Company F, whose total annual sales is $30
million in the principal reporting year (2015), manufactures
Chemical X, which is the subject of a TSCA section 5(e)
consent order and a TSCA section 5(a)(2) SNUR. The annual
production volume of Chemical X ranges between 3,000 and
5,000 lb from 2012-2015.
Site 7 is required to report for Chemical X. Based
on the sales of less than $40 million and production
volume below 100,000 lb, Company F would
qualify as a small manufacturer. Chemical X being
the subject of a SNUR does not affect the small
manufacturer exemption. However, Chemical S
being the subject of a 5(e) consent order does affect
the exemption: the small manufacturer exemption
does not apply to Company F with respect to its
manufacture of Chemical X.
Both the SNUR and the 5(e) consent order trigger
the reduced reporting threshold of 2,500 lb.
Therefore, because Chemical X is subject to a
SNUR and a section 5(e) consent order and because
Company F has produced Chemical X in amounts
above 2,500 lb in at least one year from 2012 to
2015 (in this case all four years), Company F
would be required to report.
Site 8 is owned by Company G and manufactured 25,000 lbs
of Chemical X in 2012 and 20,000 lbs in 2013. Chemical X
was the subject of a TSCA section 4 test rule promulgated in
2015. Company G's total annual income was the following:
$1 million in 2012, $2 million in 2013, $3 million in 2014,
and $5 million in 2015.
Site 8 is required to report for Chemical X. On June
1, 2016, Chemical X is subject to a TSCA section 4
test rule, which means that Company G cannot
apply the small manufacturer exemption to its
manufacture of this substance.
Because annual production volume of Chemical G
was 25,000 lb or greater in at least one year from
2012 to 2015 (in this case in 2012), Company G
must report for Chemical X.
Site 9 is owned by Company H and manufactures Chemical
X. Chemical X has been subject for several years to a TSCA
section 4 test rule which sunsets on May 1, 2016. Company
H, whose total annual sales were $3 million in 2015, has
manufactured Chemical X in annual amounts above 25,000
lb from 2012-2015.
Company H is not required to report for Chemical
X. Although Chemical X was the subject of a TSCA
section 4 test rule (which could have eliminated the
ability to apply the small manufacturer exemption to
manufacture of Chemical X), June 1, 2016 is after
the sunset date. As of June 1, 2016, Chemical X is
no longer the subject of a TSCA section 4 test rule.
Therefore, Company H, with total annual sales less
than $4 million in 2015, would be eligible to apply
the small manufacturer exemption to its
manufacture of Chemical X.
2.2.5 Do You Qualify for Any Other Reporting Exemptions? (Question I)
If you manufacture a reportable chemical substance solely under the following
circumstances, you are not required to report for those chemical substances under the CDR rule
if:
•	The chemical substance is manufactured solely in small quantities for research and
development (40 CFR 711.10(a)).
•	The chemical substance is imported as part of an article (40 CFR 711.10(b)). An article is
defined in 40 CFR 704.3 as "a manufactured item (1) which is formed to a specific shape
or design during manufacture, (2) which has end-use function(s) dependent in whole or in
part upon its shape or design during end use, and (3) which has either no change of
2-22

-------
Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
chemical composition during its end use or only those changes resulting in composition
which have no commercial purpose separate from that of the article, and that result from
a chemical reaction that occurs upon end use of other chemical substances, mixtures, or
articles; except that fluids and particles are not considered articles regardless of shape or
design."
EPA considers imported items articles if they are manufactured in a specific shape or
design for a particular end-use application and this design is maintained as an essential
feature in the finished product. Thus, EPA views materials such as metal or plastic sheets,
wire, coated fabric, rolled carpet, sheets of plywood, and other similar materials as
articles, even if, for example, subsequent to import they are rolled or drawn thinner, cut,
printed, laminated, or thermoformed, provided they meet the above definition. Chemical
substances that are part of such articles are not subject to reporting under the CDR rule. If
the shape of an item does not serve a function with respect to the item's end use (e.g., it is
imported in a particular shape for the sake of shipping convenience) then it would not be
considered an article. Thus, chemical substances that are part of items not considered by
EPA as articles, such as metal ingots, billets, and blooms are subject to reporting under
the CDR rule.
For additional information, see Fact Sheet: Imported Articles.
•	The chemical substance is manufactured as an impurity, a non-isolated intermediate, or
under any of the other circumstances identified in 40 CFR 720.30(g) and (h). (40 CFR
711.10(c))
•	If, within one year prior to the start of the submission period, (i.e., June 1, 2015 to May
31, 2016), you submitted all of the information required by the CDR rule in response to
another rule promulgated under section 8(a) of TSCA (such as the Preliminary
Assessment Information Reporting (PAIR) rule at 40 CFR Part 717, Subpart B), you are
not required to report the same information under CDR for the same chemical substance
during 2016 (40 CFR 711.22(a)).

Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
Table 2-5 presents examples of the manufacturing/importing activities listed above.
If you manufacture a CDR reportable chemical substance in quantities greater than
25,000 lb (or 2,500 lb if the subject of certain TSCA actions), and do not qualify for any
reporting exemptions, you should evaluate Step III, described in the following section, to
determine what information you must report for your chemical substance.

Reporting Requirements
Table 2-5. Examples of Manufacturing/Importing Activities Under Circumstances Which
Do/Do Not Require Reporting
Description
20l(» Rcpnrlinii Kc(|iiimm*nl
Company A manufactures 400,000 lb of a chemical
intermediate called Chemical X during the production of a
polymer. Chemical X is manufactured in Reactor 1 and is
subsequently entirely consumed when reacted with other
chemicals. Chemical X never leaves Reactor 1, except for
sampling purposes.
Company A does not need to report Chemical X
because it is considered to be a non-isolated
intermediate and is therefore fully exempt.
Company B manufactures 400,000 lb of a chemical
intermediate called Chemical Y during the production of a
polymer. Chemical Y is manufactured in Reactor 1 and
transferred to a storage tank until needed. Chemical Y is
then transferred to Reactor 2 where it is mixed with other
reactants to form the desired polymer, at which point
Chemical Y is destroyed. Chemical Y never leaves this
production site.
Company B is required to report Chemical Y.
When Chemical Y was transferred to the storage
tank, it was isolated, and, thus, does not meet the
definition for "non-isolated intermediate."
Company C imports 10 million lb of Chemical Z in the form
of thin sheets. Company C cuts these sheets into the desired
size and shape, which are sold to consumers.
Company C is not required to report Chemical Z
because it is considered to be an article and
therefore exempt from reporting.
Company D imports 10 million lb of Chemical W in the
form of pellets. Company D subsequently melts and molds
Chemical W into the desired shape, which is sold directly to
consumers.
Company D is required to report Chemical W
because it imported pellets whose shape or design
when imported was not related to their end use.
Company D domestically manufactures 10 million lb of
Chemical W. Company D subsequently sells Chemical W to
Company E in the form of pellets. Company E melts and
molds the pellets.
Company D is required to report as the
manufacturer of Chemical W. Company E is not
required to report because it is neither
manufacturing nor importing Chemical W.
2.3 Step III: What Information Must You Report?
Once you determine from Steps I and II
that you are a manufacturer (including
importer) of a CDR reportable chemical
substance and are required to report, this
section will help you determine what
information you must report.
You are required to report the
information described in 40 CFR 711.15(b) in
Parts I and II and, unless you qualify for a
partial exemption, Part III of Form U.
Basic company and site identification information, (submitted on Part I of Form U) is
required by 40 CFR 711.15(b)(1) and (b)(2). Chemical identification and information pertaining
to the manufacture (including import) of chemical substances (submitted on Part II of Form U)
is required by 40 CFR 711.15(b)(3). Note that the basic company and site information is
reported once per site, while the manufacturing information is reported separately for each
reportable chemical substance at the site. Industrial processing and use, and consumer and
The reporting threshold for processing
and use activities is the same as that for
manufacturing information.
You must use the same reporting threshold
for reporting processing and use information
as you use for reporting all manufacturing
information (i.e., either 25,000 lb or 2,500
lb).

Reporting Requirements
commercial uses of the chemical substance (submitted on Part III of Form U) is required by 40
CFR 71 1 15(b)(4) Processing and use information is only reported for the principle reporting
year (2015).
Manufacturers (including importers) of partially exempt chemical substances listed in 40
CFR 711.6(b)(1) and 711.6(b)(2) are not required to report processing and use information
described in 40 CFR 711.15(b)(4) for those chemical substances, but are otherwise required to
report the information requested on basic identity and manufacturing information described in
40 CFR 711.15(b)(2) and (3) for those chemical substances. Note that these partial exemptions
are negated if the chemical substance is the subject of any of certain TSCA actions.
Figure 2-4 presents a decision logic diagram to assist you in determining the CDR
information you must report. The following subsections explain each question in greater detail.
J. Is your chemical substance the
subject of certain TSCA actions?

Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
2.3.1	Is Your Chemical Substance Subject to Full Reporting due to Its TSCA Regulatory
or Consent Agreement Status? (Question J)
Chemical substances that are the subject of certain TSCA regulatory actions (40 CFR
711.6). See Section 2.1.4 for a more detailed description of the chemical substances that meet
these criteria. If you manufacture (including import) these chemical substances at quantities at
or above the applicable reporting threshold (i.e., either 25,000 or 2,500 lb if the subject of certain
TSCA actions), you must report all CDR information (i.e., manufacturing, processing, and use
information) regardless of any exemptions for which the chemical substance would otherwise
qualify. The SRS provides information on TSCA regulatory status of chemical substances.
If your chemical substance is not part of a TSCA regulatory action or consent agreement,
continue to evaluate Questions K and L as seen on Figure 2-4 and also described in the following
sections to determine whether your chemical substance is partially exempt.
2.3.2	Is Your Chemical Substance Listed as a Petroleum Process Stream? (Question K)
Manufacturers (including importers) of certain petroleum process streams, regardless of
the production volume, do not need to complete Part III of Form U for these chemical
substances. The chemical substances termed "petroleum process streams" for purposes of CDR
that are partially exempt from CDR requirements are those listed by CAS Registry Number at 40
CFR 711.6(b)(1).
2.3.3	Is Your Chemical Substance Listed as a Chemical for Which There is Low Current
Interest in the CDR Processing and Use Information? (Question L)
EPA created a partial exemption for certain chemical substances for which EPA has
identified a low current interest in their processing and use information. The specific chemical
substances are listed at 40 CFR 711.6(b)(2)(iv). The most recent additions to the partially exempt
chemicals list can be found under the Petition Results tab of the How To Report Under Chemical
Data Reporting page of the CDR website.
If your CDR reportable chemical substance manufactured (including imported) in
quantities at or above the applicable reporting threshold (i.e., either 25,000 or 2,500 lb if subject
to certain TSCA actions) is partially exempt, you are required to report only Parts I and II of the
reporting form. Otherwise, you are required to report Parts I, II, and III of the reporting form,
covering manufacturing, processing, and use information for your CDR reportable chemical
substance. Chapter 3 provides information about when you must report this information to EPA.
2-27

Chapter 2
Reporting Requirements
Example 2-7. Company ABC produces Chemical Q, which is not the subject of any of the
TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 71 1.6 or 711.8(b), nor is it listed as a petroleum process stream
or identified as low current interest for EPA. At the site, Chemical Q was produced in amounts
of 30,000 lb in 2012 and 50,000 lb in 2014. It was only produced in amounts of 10,000 lb in
2013 and 5,000 lb in 2015
Because Chemical Q is not the subject of any of the TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b),
the 25,000 lb threshold would be applicable for Chemical Q. Since the 25,000 lb threshold was
exceeded at least once from 2012 to 2015 (in this case, in 2012 and 2014), Company ABC
would be subject to reporting. Chemical Q is not the subject of any of the TSCA actions listed in
711.6, is not listed as a petroleum process stream or identified as low current interest for EPA,
so it is not partially exempt. Therefore, for the principal reporting year of 2015, Company ABC
would report additional manufacturing information and the processing and use data based on the
5,000 lb it produced that year.
Example 2-8. Company DEF begins producing Chemical Z in 2013. Chemical Z is not the
subject of any of the TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 711.8(b). The production volumes at the
site are 2,000 lb in 2013, 25,000 lb in 2014, and no production for 2015.
Chemical Z is not the subject of any of the TSCA actions listed in 40 CFR 71 1.8(b); therefore,
the 25,000 lb threshold would be applicable for Chemical Z. Since the 25,000 lb threshold was
met in 2014, Company DEF would be subject to reporting. However, since there was no
production in 2015, the principal reporting year, the production volume would be reported as
zero, the manufacturing information needed to be reported would be limited to the company and
plant site information (40 CFR 711.15(b)(2)) and the chemical specific information on identity
as well as the production volume for 2013 and 2014 (40 CFR 711.15(b)(3)).

When You Must Report
3. When You Must Report
For the 2016 reporting cycle, you are required to report information (pertaining to
calendar years 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015) during the 2016 submission period. The 2016
submission period begins June 1, 2016 and ends September 30, 2016 (40 CFR 711.20).
Your submissions for the 2016 reporting cycle must be submitted to EPA via the Internet
and through EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX) no later than September 30, 2016. You
should note that registration with CDX is required prior to accessing e-CDRweb to submit your
CDR information (40 CFR 711.35). Separate user guides are available covering the specifics of
CDR registration and use of the e-CDRweb reporting tool. If you are required to report, failure to
file your report during this period is a violation of TSCA sections 8(a) and 15 and may subject
you to penalties. (40 CFR 711.1(c))

Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
4. Instructions for Completing CDR Form U
This chapter will help you complete the CDR Form U. Separate user guides are available
covering the specifics of CDX registration and use of the e-CDRweb reporting tool. Section 4.1
describes how to certify your submission. Section 4.2 discusses the reporting standard - the
effort required to comply with the CDR rule. Sections 4.3 through 4.9 provide information to
help you complete each required section of Form U.
You are required to use the CDR reporting tool, e-CDRweb, to submit information for
each CDR reportable chemical substance. If you are reporting information for more than one
chemical substance at your site, you must report information for all reportable chemical
substances on one Form U. However, you must submit a separate Form U for each site for which
you are required to report.
The certification statement and Part I of Form U are completed once per reporting site.
Parts II and III are completed for each reportable chemical substance at the site. Part IV is
reserved for the special case of a joint submission, and is completed by the secondary submitter.
Note: Items such as the validation page and the SRS search page will appear in separate
windows. Ensure that your pop-up blocker is disabled before you begin to complete Form U.
4.1	Certification
Your CDR submission must be certified, indicating that your submitted information has
been completed in compliance with the CDR requirements and that any confidentiality claims
are true and correct. To certify, the certification statement must be electronically signed and
dated by an authorized official at your company. The authorized official typically is a senior
official with management responsibility for the person (or persons) completing the form. You
must include the printed name, title, and email address for the person signing the certification.
See the user guide on CDX Registration for information on how to complete an electronic
signature agreement.
This certification statement applies to all the information supplied on the form and should
be signed only after the form has been completed. Note that knowingly providing false or
misleading information or concealing required information may be punishable by fine or
imprisonment or both under TSCA section 16(b).
4.2	Reporting Standard
Submitters are required to exercise certain levels of due diligence in gathering the
information required by the CDR rule. You must report your information to the extent that the
information is known to or reasonably ascertainable by you and your company. The term
"known to or reasonably ascertainable by" is defined in 40 CFR 704.3 and discussed more fully
below.
4-1

-------
Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
Known to or reasonably ascertainable by means all information in a person's possession or
control, plus all information that a reasonable person similarly situated might be expected to
possess, control, or know.
Under TSCA section 8(a), EPA may collect information associated with chemical
substances to the extent that it is known to or reasonably ascertainable by the submitter. This
includes, but is not limited to, information that may be possessed by employees or other agents
of the company reporting under the CDR rule, including persons involved in the research,
development, manufacturing, or marketing of a chemical substance and includes knowledge
gained through discussions, symposia, and technical publications. For purposes of CDR, the
known to or reasonably ascertainable by standard applies to all the information required by the
rule.
Examples of types of information that are considered to be in a person's possession or
control, or that a reasonable person similarly situated might be expected to possess, control, or
know include:
•	Files maintained by the submitter, such as marketing studies, sales reports, or customer
surveys;
•	Information contained in standard references, such as MSDSs, that contain use information or
concentrations of chemical substances in mixtures; and
•	Information from the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and from Dun & Bradstreet D-U-N
S®.
The hypothetical examples in Table 4-1 illustrate the anticipated application of the
"known to or reasonably ascertainable" reporting standard, in the specific context of the
collection of processing and use data under the CDR. Because the standard applies on a case-by
case basis, however, these examples cannot substitute for a complete analysis of a submitter's
particular circumstances.

Table 4-1. Examples of the Application of the "Known to or Reasonably Ascertainable"
Reporting Standard for Processing and Use Data.
Scenarios. Actions. ;iihI Outcomes
Scenario: Company XYZ discovers that it has no knowledge of how a particular reportable chemical substance
(chemical substance #1) is processed or used by its customers. Company XYZ usually maintains marketing data
documenting customers' use of its chemicals, in line with the reasonable business practices typical of comparable
manufacturers, but it irrevocably lost these data for chemical substance #1 due to an inadvertent computer
malfunction. Company XYZ has many customers, but it expects that it could substantially reconstruct this missing
information by briefly contacting its largest customer and asking that customer what chemical substance #1 is
generally used for.
Application of KRA Reporting Standard:
If:
Then:
Company XYZ contacts its largest customer and reports on the basis of
the processing and use data that the customer was willing to provide.
Duties Likely Fulfilled
Company XYZ did not endeavor to supplement the information it already
knew.
Duties Not Fulfilled

Scenario: Co moanv XYZ has never maintained information on how a particular reportable chemical substance
(chemical substance #2) is processed or used by its customers. However, it is typical for comparable manufacturers
to collect such information as part of their reasonable business practices. Company XYZ has many customers but it
expects that it could substantially fill this data gap by reviewing the public web site of its largest customer.
Application of KRA Reporting Standard:

If:
Then:
Company XYZ reviews its largest customer's web site, and reports on the
basis of the information contained in the web site.
Duties Likely Fulfilled
Company XYZ did not endeavor to supplement the information it already
knew.
Duties Not Fulfilled
Scenario: Company ABC maintains seasonal marketing data on changes in use patterns for a particular chemical
substance (chemical substance #3). Comparable manufacturers typically only maintain such data on an annual
basis, in line with reasonable business practices. Company ABC irrevocably loses its summer marketing data for
chemical substance #3, due to an inadvertent computer malfunction. Company ABC expects that it could
substantially reconstruct the missing summer marketing data by contacting its largest customer and asking the
customer what it used or processed chemical substance #3 for in the past summer.
Application of KRA Reporting Standard:
If:
Then:
Instead of attempting to reconstruct the summer data by contacting its
largest customer, Company ABC reports on the basis of the processing
and use data that it already knows (regarding the winter, spring, and fall
of the year).
Duties Likely Fulfilled
Company ABC designated the information as "not known or reasonably
ascertainable" simply because one of the seasonal marketing reports was
missing.
Duties Not Fulfilled

Scenarios. Actions. ;iihI Oiiicoiik-s
Scenario: Company ABC has never maintained information on how a particular reportable chemical substance
(chemical substance #4) is processed or used by its customers. However, it is typical for comparable manufacturers
to collect such information as part of their reasonable business practices. Company ABC has one major customer
and ten minor customers.
Application of KRA Reporting Standard:
If:
Then:
Company ABC asks its major customer to supply information about how
chemical substance #4 is processed and used, but that customer is
unwilling to supply this information. Company ABC reasonably expects
that the only remaining way to substantially fill this data gap would be to
send a survey to its ten minor customers. Company ABC reports that the
information is "not known or reasonably ascertainable" to it.
Duties Likely Fulfilled
Company ABC did not endeavor to obtain processing and use
information from its customers and designated the information as "not
known or reasonably ascertainable."
Duties Not Fulfilled
4.3 Part I - Section A. Parent Company Information2
You must provide information about your U.S. parent company. For purposes of CDR,
your U.S. parent company is the highest level company, located in the United States, which
directly owns at least 50 percent of the voting stock of the manufacturer. This definition is
limited to this context, is distinct from the more geographically broad definition of "parent
company" used in 40 CFR 704.3, and does not apply to the determination of whether a person
meets the small manufacturer exemption. Corporate names should be treated as U.S. parent
company names for companies with multiple sites. When a site is owned by more than one
company and none of the site owners directly owns at least 50 percent of its voting stock, the site
should provide the name of the U.S. parent company of either the site operator or the owner with
the largest ownership interest in the site.
Example 4-1. Bestchem Corporation is not owned or controlled by any other corporation but
has sites throughout the country whose names begin with Bestchem. In this case, Bestchem
Corporation should be listed as the U.S. parent company.
Note: Information provided during CDX registration will populate your U.S. parent
company identification information in Section A. Please double check this information to
ensure all required fields are complete and accurate. If any information is incorrect or
incomplete, the authorized official should make the necessary changes in CDX.

Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
4.4.1 Special Provisions for Certain Sites
The definition of site at 40 CFR 711.3 has special provisions for the following situations:
importation, manufacturing by contract, and portable manufacturing units sent out from a single
distribution center. These provisions have a direct bearing on the site which must be identified
in Part I, Section B of Form U.
4.4.1.1 Special Provisions for Importers
The site where you import a chemical substance is considered the site of the operating
unit within your organization that is directly responsible for importing the chemical substance
and that controls the import transaction (e.g., the company's U.S. headquarters). For CDR, all
importers must provide a U.S. address for the controlling site; this site may be your company's
headquarters in the United States. If there is no such operating unit or headquarters in the United
States, the site address for the importer is the U.S. address of an agent acting on the importer's
behalf who is authorized to accept service of process for the importer (40 CFR 711.3). In the
event that more than one person may meet the definition of "importer" (40 CFR 704.3), only one
person should report. See 40 CFR 711.22(b).
Example 4-2. The headquarters of your company is located in New Town. Your company
owns a plant site located in Old Town, which is in a different state. A headquarters employee
purchases and arranges to have 500,000 lb of Chemical X imported from Japan to the Old
Town plant site. The headquarters site in New Town controls the import transaction and is the
site reported on Form U.
Example 4-3. The headquarters of your company is located in New Town. Your company
owns three manufacturing sites, Sites 1, 2, and 3, all located in different states. An employee
based at headquarters purchases and arranges to have 500,000 lb of Chemical X imported
from Japan. The chemical is distributed as follows: 20,000 lb is delivered to Site 1; 180,000
lb is delivered to Site 2; and 300,000 lb is delivered to Site 3. The headquarters in New Town
controls the import transaction for all three sites, and therefore is responsible for reporting all
500,000 lb of Chemical X. The site reported on Form U is New Town.
4.4.1.2 Special Provisions for Manufacturing by Contract
For chemical substances manufactured under contract, i.e., by a toll manufacturer, the site
is the location where the chemical substance is physically manufactured (definition of site, 40
CFR 711.3). When a company contracts with a toll manufacturer to manufacture a chemical
substance and each party meets the definition of manufacturer as set forth in 40 CFR 711.3, they
may determine among themselves who should submit the required report for the site. However,
in such cases, both the toll manufacturer and the contracting company are liable if no report is
made. See 40 CFR 711.22(c). Nevertheless, even if the contracting company submits the Form
U, the site is still the location where the chemical substance is physically manufactured.
4-7

-------
Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
4.4.1.3 Special Provisions for Portable Manufacturing Units
Two examples of portable manufacturing units are tanks used to manufacture calcium
hydroxide slurry for use in building construction and road and highway projects, and tanks used
to mix anhydrous ammonia and water to manufacture ammonium hydroxide prior to application
on agricultural lands. EPA is interested in including chemical substance manufacturing that is,
for instance, performed by road crews or is occurring at construction sites at which chemical
substances are mixed on site to create a different chemical substance. Because the site of
physical manufacturing could change on a frequent basis, the distribution center shall be
considered the site for portable manufacturing units sent to different locations from a single
distribution center. Manufacturers would report the aggregated production volume for all of the
portable manufacturing units sent out to different locations from a single distribution center
whose address would be reported as the site location.
4.4.2	Site Name (Block l.B.l)
Enter the full name of the site. You should include any additional identifying terms such
as Inc., Ltd., L.L.C., etc.
4.4.3	Site Dun & Bradstreet Number D-U-N-S® (Block 1.B.2)
D&B assigns separate numbers to subsidiaries and parent companies; make sure that the
number you provide EPA in block 1.B.2 belongs to the individual site for which you are
reporting. You must obtain a D&B number for the site, if none exists. If the site does not have a
D&B number, you can request one from your local office of D&B. Please refer to Section 4.3.2
for information on obtaining a D&B number.
4.4.4	Site Street Address (Blocks 1.B.3 through 1.B.8)
Enter your site mailing address, including the appropriate county or parish (or other
jurisdictional indicator), using standard addressing techniques as established by the U.S. Postal
Service. Post Office box numbers should be accompanied by a street address. If a Post Office
box is listed, it should be listed after the street address.
4-8

Chapter 4
Instructions for Completing CDR Form U
4.5 Part I - Section C. Technical Contact Information4
This section requests information about the person whom EPA may contact for
clarification of the information in your CDR submission. The technical contact should be a
person who can answer questions about the reported chemical substance(s). Typically, a person
located at the manufacturing site is best able to answer such questions. However, companies may
use their discretion in selecting a technical contact or multiple technical contacts, as provided by
the e-CDRweb tool. Submitters should consider, in selecting the technical contact, that EPA may
have follow-up questions about a CDR submission, one or more years after the submission date.
The technical contact need not be the person who signed the certification statement. You can
select your technical contact from the drop down list of support registrants or enter information
for a new technical contact.
Note: If you select from the list of support registrants, the technical contact information
provided during CDX registration will populate Section C. Please double check this
information to ensure all required fields are complete and accurate. If any information is
incorrect or incomplete, the authorized official should make the necessary changes in CDX.

4.6 Part II - Section A. Chemical Substance Identification
You must use the Agency's Substance Registry Services (SRS) to report the chemical
substance identification information consisting of the currently correct Chemical Abstracts (CA)
Index Name and the correct corresponding Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry Number
(CASRN), as described in Sections 4.6.2 and 4.6.4. The SRS is EPA's central system for
information about chemical substances that are tracked or regulated by EPA or other sources. It
is the authoritative resource for basic information about chemicals, biological organisms, and
other chemical substances of interest to EPA and its state and tribal partners.
The correct CA Index Name and CASRN must be reported separately for each CDR
reportable chemical substance at your site. If you wish to report a chemical substance listed on
the confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory, you will need to report the chemical substance
using a TSCA Accession Number (the generic name corresponding to the Accession Number
will automatically be incorporated into your form). See Section 4.6.1 for details on how to report
confidential chemical substances.

You will be able to connect directly to the SRS database from the reporting tool to report
the correct CA Index Names and CASRNs for all of your non-confidential chemical substances
on the TSCA Inventory. TSCA Accession Numbers and generic chemical names will be listed
for chemical substances on the confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory. The use of the SRS
to obtain the identities for all CDR reportable chemical substances is a convenient way to meet
the chemical nomenclature requirement and will help to prevent errors in the reporting of
chemical identification information for the CDR. Furthermore, after choosing a chemical
substance, a message will describe whether the chemical substance is on the lists of full or

4.6.1 Confidentiality of Chemical Substance Information (Block 2.A.1)
If you wish to report a chemical substance listed on the confidential portion of the TSCA
Inventory, you will need to report the chemical substance using a TSCA Accession Number.
The generic chemical name corresponding to the TSCA Accession Number will also be
automatically incorporated into your form.
You may claim as confidential the identity of a chemi cal substance that is already listed
as confidential on the TSCA Inventory (40 CFR 711.30(b)). To do so, you must check the
appropriate CBI box in Part II, Section A and submit detailed written answers to the
substantiation questions listed in Table 4-2. The identities of chemical substances listed on the
public version of the TSCA Inventory are already publicly known. Therefore, claims for
confidential treatment of the identity of a chemical substance which is listed on the public
section of the TSCA Inventory are not valid and will not be allowed using the reporting tool. The
Agency limits chemical identity CBI claims to only those chemical substances listed on the
confidential portion of the Master Inventory File.

CBl claims for chemical identity will be accepted only when accompanied by a separate written
substantiation for the chemical substances claimed as CBL Clicking the checkbox next to "CBl for
Chemical Identification" triggers the substantiation questions upon clicking "Next." If you fail to
substantiate the claim for confidentiality of the chemical identity in accordance with applicable rules,
EPA may make the information available to the public without further notice to you. Note that
checking this box does not protect the link between your company and the chemical substance; it only
asserts a CBl claim for the specific identity of the chemical substance.

Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
4.6.2 Chemical Substance Identifying Number (Block 2.A.2)
Every chemical substance reported in
accordance with CDR must be accompanied by
its correct CASRN, corresponding to the
chemical substance's specific chemical name
as described in 4.6.4. (40 CFR
711.15(b)(3)(i)). You may enter either a
CASRN (Block 2.A.2) or the specific name of
the chemical substance (Block 2. A.4) to select
the appropriate CASRN/Chemical Abstracts
(CA) Index Name combination from the SRS
database.
EPA is requiring that you report only the CASRN as a chemical identifying number,
except in the case of confidential chemical substances. In the case of confidential chemical
substances, EPA is requiring that you report only the TSCA Accession Number as a chemical
identifying number. If, in the past, you reported using the PMN case number of a confidential
substance, you can use the PMN case number to search the SRS to populate the pertinent
chemical identification information for the confidential chemical substance listed on the TSCA
Inventory. In the SRS, you can readily find a cross-reference list that displays the Accession
Number, generic chemical name, and the PMN case number (or for an initial TSCA Inventory
substance, the TSCA Inventory reporting form number) for any confidential chemical substance
listed on the TSCA Inventory. You can then select from the SRS the correct Accession Number
corresponding to the confidential chemical substance intended to be reported (the generic name
corresponding to the Accession Number will automatically be incorporated into your report).
There are certain circumstances where you occasionally may not be sure of the particular
PMN case number and Accession Number the Agency has assigned to one of its confidential
chemical substances, such that you would not be able to definitely determine this solely from
searching the SRS. This could happen, for example, if the chemical substance were originally
reported as part of a consolidated PMN and you did not learn from EPA which particular case
number in the consolidated PMN number sequence corresponds to which of the several reported
confidential chemical substances. This could also happen if a certain PMN represented a mixture
of two or more confidential chemical substances, such that multiple Accession Numbers were
assigned to the different chemical substances reported in that single PMN, and you didn't already
request the particular Accession Numbers from EPA for the individual chemical substances
comprising that multi-component type of PMN. In such circumstances, you should contact EPA
well before initiating CDR reporting to obtain the required Accession Numbers from the Agency.
Submitters who are not able to identify the Accession Number by searching the SRS
should contact EPA, in writing on company letterhead, well before initiating CDR reporting to
obtain the Accession Number assigned when the Notice of Commencement (NOC) was
submitted to the Agency. Individuals are urged to submit a complete and accurate TSCA
Inventory Correspondence at least one month before the submission deadline. Note that
incomplete and/or inaccurate requests may be rejected. The Agency will respond to such
inquiries in as timely a manner as possible. It is the responsibility of the submitter to contact the
Agency for such information in sufficient time to allow for the Agency to respond.
Report the correct CASRN for your chemical
substance if it is listed on the non-
confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory.
If your chemical substance is listed on the
confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory
and you wish to continue having the chemical
identity be confidential, report the EPA-
designated TSCA Accession Number. Each
TSCA Inventory chemical substance has at
least one of these types of numbers.

4.6.4 Chemical Name (Block 2.A.4)
EPA is requiring the reporting of the CA Index Name currently used to list the chemical
substance on the TSCA Inventory as the chemical name reported for CDR. You may enter
either a CASRN (Block 2. A.2) or the specific name of the chemical substance (Block 2. A.4) to
select the appropriate CASRN/Chemical Abstracts (CA) Index Name combination from the SRS
database.
In cases where a chemical substance is listed on the confidential portion of the TSCA
Inventory, you are to report the chemical substance's Accession Number which is listed on the
non-confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory and is included in the SRS (the generic name
corresponding to the Accession Number will automatically be incorporated into your report). In
order to continue to protect the confidentiality of the underlying specific chemical identification
information (i.e., the CASRN and specific chemical name), you must claim the chemical identity
as CBI and complete the upfront substantiation. Doing so will maintain the confidentiality of
the underlying specific chemical name and CASRN of the confidential chemical substance. The
Accession Number and generic chemical name will remain non-confidential. Failure to identify
the chemical identity as CBI and complete the upfront substantiation will waive any CBI claim
to the chemical identity and will result in the transfer of the chemical substance from the
confidential portion of the TSCA Inventory to the non-confidential, publicly releasable, portion
of the TSCA Inventory.

4.6.5 Special Provisions for Importers and Joint Submitters
You may report an alternate chemical name, and in the case of importers, a trade name,
in those instances where your supplier will not disclose to you the specific chemical name of the
imported TSCA Inventory chemical substance or a reactant used to manufacture the TSCA
Inventory chemical substance because the name is claimed confidential. In these cases, you and
the supplier may report the information required in a joint submission, which is further discussed
in Section 4.9 of this chapter. If you as the importer cannot provide the chemical name, supply a
trade name or other designation to identify the proprietary chemical substance and provide the
supplier's (secondary submitter's) company information. Complete as much of the Form U as
you can. In addition, you must use e-CDRweb to ask the supplier (secondary submitter) of the
confidential chemical substance to directly provide EPA with the correct chemical identity (as
described in Section 4.6.2), in a joint submission with you. Your request to the supplier must
include instructions for submitting chemical identity information electronically, using e-
CDRweb and CDX (see 40 CFR 711.35), and for clearly referencing your submission. Contact
information for the supplier, a trade name or other designation for the chemical substance or
mixture, and a copy of the request to the supplier must be included with your submission for the
chemical substance.
Similarly, in the event that you as a manufacturer completing a Form U cannot provide
the complete chemical identity because you manufacture the reportable chemical substance using
a reactant having a specific chemical identity claimed as confidential by its supplier, supply a
trade name or other designation to identify the proprietary chemical substance and provide the
supplier's (secondary submitter's) company information. Complete as much of the Form U as
you can. In addition, you must use e-CDRweb to ask the supplier to directly provide to EPA the
correct chemical identity of the confidential reactant in a joint submission. Such request must
include instructions for submitting chemical identity information electronically using e-CDRweb
and CDX (see 40 CFR 711.35), and for clearly referencing your submission. Contact
information for the supplier, a trade name or other designation for the chemical substance, and a
copy of the request to the supplier must be included with your submission referencing the
chemical substance.
In both cases, if the secondary submitter chooses to respond to the primary submitter's
request, the secondary submitter would use e-CDRweb to identify the chemical substance in
question and the percent composition of each component chemical substance of the trade name
product or mixture.
EPA will only accept joint submissions that are submitted electronically using e-
CDRweb and CDX (see 40 CFR 711.35) and that clearly reference the Form U submission to
which they refer. See Section 4.9 in this chapter for more information on preparing joint
submissions. These special provisions only apply in cases where the supplier will not reveal the
pertinent chemical identity to you because it is claimed confidential. In the event that you
actually know the chemical identity of a chemical substance subject to CDR reporting, you must
provide that information irrespective of a supplier's confidentiality claims.

4.7 Part II - Section B. Manufacturing Information
The following subsections describe the manufacturing information required to be
reported for each chemical substance.
4.7.1	Confidentiality of Company Information (Block 2.B.1)
Check the CBI box in this block to assert a confidentiality claim for the link between the
chemical substance and the company information reported in Part I, Section A. Checking other
CBI boxes on the form will not protect this link. You may claim this connection as confidential
for some chemical substances for which you are reporting, while not making the claim for others
(each chemical substance manufactured at a site is reported in separate sections of Form U).
EPA will not impute the existence of a CBI claim for company identity from a CBI claim
associated with a different chemical substance.
4.7.2	Confidentiality of Site Information (Block 2.B.2)
Check the CBI box in this block and complete the substantiation questions to assert a
confidentiality claim for the link between the chemical substance and the site identity reported in
Part I, Section B. Checking the CBI box automatically triggers the substantiation questions. See
Table 4-4 for substantiation questions related to site identity. If you fail to substantiate the site
CBI claim in accordance with the applicable rules, EPA may make the information available to
the public without further notice to you.
You may claim the connection between chemical substance and site as confidential for
some chemical substances for which you are reporting, while not making the claim for others
(each chemical substance is reported separately in Form U). EPA will not impute the existence of
a CBI claim for site identity from a CBI claim associated with a different chemical substance.
EPA also has observed that submitters sometimes claim only their company identity, but
not their site identity, as confidential. EPA will not impute the existence of a CBI claim for site
identity from a CBI claim for company identity, even if the company name appears within the
site identity information.

4.7.4.1	Activity (Domestically Manufacture and/or Import) (Block 2.B.4)
The "Manufacture" and/or "Import" boxes will be automatically checked once you
enter volume information in Blocks 2.B.5 and 2.B.6.
4.7.4.2	Domestically Manufactured Production Volume (Block 2.B.5)
Report the volume of the chemical substance domestically manufactured at your site
during calendar year 2015, in pounds. Report the quantity to at least two significant figures; it
should be accurate to the extent known to or reasonably ascertainable by you. Production
volumes should be reported in numeric format, without commas (e.g., 6352000). For example,
"2 million" or "2 E6" are not acceptable, nor are production volumes with decimals or
abbreviations such as M (e.g., 12,000,000 = 12M) or K (e.g., 50,000 = 50K).
4.7.4.3	Imported Production Volume (Block 2.B.6)
Report the volume of chemical substance imported by your site in 2015, in pounds.
Report the quantity to at least two significant figures; it should be accurate to the extent known
to or reasonably ascertainable by you. You should use the same numeric format as described for
Block 2.B.5, domestically manufactured production volume. Imported and domestically
manufactured production volumes are reported separately for each chemical substance at each
site. e-CDRweb has built-in validation systems that provide automated chemical identity and
threshold checks.
Note that if you import various mixtures containing reportable chemical substances, you
4-20

-------
Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
should add all import volumes associated with each chemical substance. For instance, if you
import three mixtures and each mixture contains Chemical A, then you would determine the
volume of Chemical A in each mixture and report the aggregated amount.
4.7.4.4	For Imported Chemical Substances, Is the Chemical Never Physically at Site? (Block
2.B.7)
Use the drop down box to select one of the following choices:
Y = Yes, the imported chemical substance is never physically at the reporting site (e.g., if
you ship the chemical substance from a foreign country directly to another location such
as a warehouse, a processing or use site, or a customer's site),
N = No, the imported chemical substance is actually physically present at the site.
NKRA = It is not known to or reasonably ascertainable by you whether the imported
chemical substance is physically present at the site.
4.7.4.5	Production Volume Used On-Site (Block 2.B.8)
Report the total volume of the domestically manufactured and imported chemical
substance used at the reporting site, in pounds. The number represents the volume of the
chemical substance that does not leave the manufacturing site. The production volume used on-
site should not exceed the sum of the domestically manufactured and imported volumes minus
the volume exported (i.e., (Block 2.B.5 + Block 2.B.6) - Block 2.B.9). If you report "Y" in Block
2.B.7, indicating that the imported chemical substance is never physically present at the reporting
site (for example because you ship it directly from a foreign supplier to your client's warehouse),
you would report "0" in block 2.B.8, because that volume is not used at your site. Report the
quantity to at least two significant figures; it should be accurate to the extent known to or
reasonably ascertainable by you. You should use the same numeric format as described for Block
2.B.5, domestically manufactured production volume. e-CDRweb has built-in validation systems
that provide automated chemical identity/threshold checks.
4.7.4.6	Production Volume Exported (Block 2.B.9)
Report the production volume directly exported and not domestically processed or used,
in pounds. The volume exported should not exceed the sum of the domestically manufactured
and imported volumes minus volume used on site (i.e., (Block 2.B.5 + Block 2.B.6 - Block
2.B.8). Note that direct exporting includes sending a chemical substance to a distributor who
then exports it without repackaging it, even if it is relabeled. Direct exporting does not include
sending a chemical substance to a distributor who repackages and relabels it. The latter case
would be considered a processing and use activity potentially reportable under Part III of Form
U. Report the quantity to at least two significant figures; it should be accurate to the extent
known to or reasonably ascertainable by you. You should use the same numeric format as
described for Block 2.B.5, domestically manufactured production volume.5
5 In the preamble to the final CDR rule, EPA advised that "if a chemical substance is sent to a distributor who then
exports it," the manufacturer reporting in accordance with the CDR rule should "report...the transfer to a distributor
under the processing and use portion of the IUR reporting form." 76 FR 50845. In this document, the explanation
of regulatory requirements has been further clarified to identify the exception in the case of relabeling (and not

Sue 1 domestically manufactures 30,000
lb of Chemical X.
Site 1 should report 30,000 lb as domestically manufactured for
Chemical X. The total production volume (i.e., the domestically
manufactured volume) should be used to report the remaining CDR
information.
Site 2 domestically manufactures 15,000
lb of Chemical X and directly imports
15,000 lb of Chemical X.
Site 2 should report 15,000 lb as domestically manufactured. Because
Site 2 controls the import transaction, Site 2 should also report 15,000
lb as imported for Chemical X. The total production volume (i.e., sum
of the domestically manufactured and import volumes) should be used
to report the remaining CDR information.
Site 3 domestically manufactures 30,000
lb of Chemical X. Of the 30,000 lb
manufactured, Site 3 directly exports
10,000 lb to a foreign customer.
Site 3 should report 30,000 lb as domestically manufactured and
10,000 lb as exported for Chemical X. The production volume not
directly exported should be used to report the remaining CDR
information.
Site 4 domestically manufactures 70,000
lb and imports 30,000 lb of Chemical X.
Site 4 uses 20,000 lb of Chemical X on
site.
Site 4 should report 70,000 lb as domestically manufactured, 30,000
lb as imported and 20,000 lb as used on site. The total production
volume (i.e., sum of the domestically manufactured and import
volumes) should be used to report the remaining CDR information.
In 2015, Company B coordinates the
import of 100,000 lb of Chemical X,
which is imported directly to three
different sites owned by Company B.
Site 5 receives 40,000 lb and Sites 6 and
7 each receive 30,000 lb of Chemical X.
Company B should report 100,000 lb as imported for Chemical X.
The total production volume (i.e., the imported volume) should be
used to report the remaining CDR information. Because the three
sites controlled by Company B did not control the import transaction,
the sites are not required to report the imported volumes.
Site 6 domestically manufactures 10,000
lb of Chemical X, which is not the
subject of any of the certain TSCA
actions
Site 6 is not required to report because production was less than
25,000 lb. Note that if Chemical X were the subject of one of the
listed TSCA actions, reporting would be required because the
production volume exceeds the 2,500 lb threshold.
4.7.4.7 Number of Workers (Block 2.B.10)
Report the total number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to each reportable
chemical substance at each site during calendar year 2015 (40 CFR 711.15(b)(3)(vii)). For
Block 2.B.10, use the drop down box to select the code corresponding to the appropriate range
for the number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to a reportable chemical substance
during manufacture. Table 4-6 shows the codes and ranges which appear in the drop down box.

"Reasonably likely to be exposed" means "an exposure to a chemical substance which,
under foreseeable conditions of manufacture, processing, distribution in commerce, or use of the
chemical substance, is more likely to occur than not to occur. Such exposures would normally
include, but would not be limited to, activities such as charging reactor vessels, drumming, bulk
loading, cleaning equipment, maintenance operations, materials handling and transfers, and
analytical operations. Covered exposures include exposures through any route of entry
(inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, absorption, etc.), but excludes accidental or theoretical
exposures" (40 CFR 711.3).
Persons reasonably likely to be exposed to a chemical substance include workers whose
employment requires them to pass through areas where chemical substances are manufactured,
processed, or used (e.g., production workers and foremen, process engineers, and plant
managers). Workers employed to drive vehicles which transport the chemical substance should
be included in the number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance
if they come into contact with the chemical substance during loading or unloading. For example,
workers engaged in the connection or disengagement of hoses used to load or unload the
chemical substance should be included. However, workers involved solely with transporting
chemical substances in sealed containers that are totally enclosed with no potential for exposure
should not be included.
In addition, when a site employs temporary, seasonal, or contract workers in the
manufacture of a reportable chemical substance, these workers should be included in the number
of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to a chemical substance if they work in areas where
the chemical substance is manufactured. The term does not include those employees whose jobs
are not associated with potential exposures to a chemical substance or mixture (e.g.,
administrative staff who never enter areas where the chemical substance is manufactured) and
who are unlikely to be exposed to a chemical substance for even a brief period of time. No
allowance is made for personal protective equipment or for engineering controls that reduce but
do not preclude exposure to a chemical substance; however, if contact between a worker and a
chemical substance is highly improbable, the worker should not be included among those
persons reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance.
When there is no potential exposure to a chemical substance, the code W1 corresponding
to fewer than 10 workers would be reported. This would be the case, for instance, when a
chemical substance is imported in sealed containers and resold without repackaging or is shipped
from a foreign source directly to a customer.

4.7.4.8 Maximum Concentration (Block 2.B.11)
Report the maximum concentration, measured by percentage of weight, of your
reportable chemical substance at the time it is reacted on-site to produce a different chemical
substance (site-limited) or as itleavesthe site (40 CFR 711.15(b)(3)(viii)).The concentration
must be accurate to the extent that information is known to or reasonably ascertainable by
you. In your determination of the maximum concentration, do not include concentrations of
the product sent off-site for non-commercial purposes (40 CFR 710.1(a)).
For each chemical substance, from the drop down box select the code which corresponds
to the appropriate maximum concentration range of the chemical substance. Table 4-7 shows
the codes and concentration ranges which appear in the drop down box. If the maximum
concentration falls between two ranges, round your estimate to the nearest one percent using
standard rounding procedures. Report the code that corresponds to the appropriate range. Report
the maximum concentration regardless of the various physical forms in which the chemical
substance may be sent off-site or reacted on-site to produce a different chemical substance.

4.7.4.10 Physical Form and Percentage of Production Volume (Blocks 2.B.13 through 2.B.19)
Report all physical forms of the chemical substance at the time it is reacted or as it leaves
your site and the percentage of production volume (including both domestically manufactured
and imported volumes) for each physical form (40 CFR 711.15(b)(3)(viii)). For each chemical
substance at each site, the submitter must report as many physical forms as applicable by
selecting the appropriate blocks which correspond to the following six physical forms:
•	Dry Powder
•	Pellets or Large Crystals
•	Water- or Solvent-Wet Solid
•	Other Solid
•	Gas or Vapor
•	Liquid
Select "Not Known or Reasonably Ascertainable (NKRA)" if the physical form of
the chemical substance is not known to or reasonably ascertainable by you.
Report the percentage of the total production volume of the chemical substance for each
physical form reacted onsite or sent off-site rounded off to the closest 10 percent (40 CFR
711.15(b)(3)(ix)). If the chemical substance is sent off-site in more than one physical form,
report all the physical forms in which it is sent off-site. These percentages may total more or less
than 100% due to rounding.

4.7.5 Reporting Past Production Volume (PV) (Block 2.B.20)
If the reporting threshold of 25,000 pounds is met or exceeded during any calendar year
since 2011 (or 2,500 lb or more for chemical substances subject to certain TSCA actions),
reporting is required for each calendar year in the CDR submission period. Report the total
volume of the chemical substance manufactured at your site (includes domestically
manufactured and imported volumes) during calendar year 2012, 2013, and 2014 in pounds.
Report the production volume to at least two significant figures; it should be accurate to the
extent known to or reasonably ascertainable by you. Production volumes should be reported in
numeric format, with or without commas (i.e., 58,000 or 6352000). For example, "2 million" or
"2 E6" are not acceptable, nor are production volumes with decimals or abbreviations such as M
(e.g., 12,000,000 = 12M) or K (e.g., 50,000 = 50K).
4.8 Part III - Processing and Use Information
In addition to completing Parts I and II, you
must complete Part III of Form U for reportable
chemical substances manufactured (including
imported), unless the chemical substance is
partially exempt. See Sections 2.3.3 and 2.3.4 to
determine whether you qualify for a partial
exemption. You should report the processing and use activities for the total 2015 production
volume reported (both domestically manufactured (Block 2.B.5.) and imported (Block
2.B.6.)) in Part II.
The processing or use information should be reported to the extent that it is known to or
reasonably ascertainable by you (40 CFR 711.15). Under the "known to or reasonably
ascertainable by" standard, a submitter would therefore prepare its report about the processing
and use of a chemical substance it manufactures (including imports), without confining its
inquiry solely to what is known to managerial and supervisory employees, but would also be
expected to review information which the manufacturer (including importer) may have in their
possession or control, plus all information that a reasonable person similarly situated might be
expected to possess, control, or know. The inquiry would be as extensive as a reasonable person,
similarly situated, might be expected to perform within the organization. Information derived
from customer surveys or other customer contacts, like any other information, would be "known
to" the submitter if it is available after a reasonable inquiry within the organization. The standard
does not necessarily require that the manufacturer conduct an exhaustive survey of all
employees.
EPA would like to furthermore clarify that submitters are not required to conduct a new
or additional customer survey (i.e., to pose a comprehensive set of identical questions to multiple
customers) under this standard. If particular information cannot be derived or reasonably
estimated from the information available to the company without conducting further customer
surveys, it is not "known to or reasonably ascertainable" to the submitter for purposes of the
CDR. However, to the extent that customer surveys are already in the submitter's possession or
control, and to the extent that reasonable efforts to analyze or derive information from already-
available customer surveys may inform processing and use information that is reported, the
information is generally "known to or reasonably ascertainable." Section 4.2 contains additional
information on the "known to or reasonably ascertainable by" reporting standard.
Information regarding processing or use
activities must be reported to the extent
that it is known to or reasonably
ascertainable by the submitter (40 CFR
711.15(b)(4)).

Part III - Section A. Industrial Processing and Use Data (Blocks 3.A.1 through 3.A.10)
For each CDR chemical substance manufactured (including imported), report up to ten
unique combinations of the following data elements: the Type of Process or Use Operation
(TPU) (described in Section 4.8.1.1), the Industrial Sector (IS) (described in Section 4.8.1.2), and
the Industrial Function Category (1FC) (described in Section 4.8.1.3) (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(i)). A
combination of these three data elements defines a potential exposure scenario for risk-screening
and priority-setting purposes. For each of these uni que combinations, you are also required to
report the percentage of production volume (described in Section 4.8.1.4), the number of sites
(described in Section 4.8.1.5), and the number of workers (described in Section 4.8.1.6) (40 CFR
711.15(b)(4)(i)). If more than ten unique combinations apply to a chemical substance, you need
only report the ten combinations for the chemical substance that cumulatively represent the
largest percentage of production volume, measured by weight (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(i)(C)). The
reporting tool will allow you to enter more than ten combinations if you choose to do so.

To the extent that it is known to or reasonably ascertainable by you, use the drop down
box to select the code which corresponds to the appropriate Type of Processing or Use Operation
(TPU) for the particular combination of IS and IFC codes. Table 4-9 shows the codes and TPUs
which appear in the drop down box. Note that if a chemical substance is fully reacted (i.e.,
reporting "PC" for the processing code), then the chemical substance is consumed and further
processing and use information for that chemical substance will not exist. In such a situation,
there is no further downstream processing and use information to be reported for that particular
type of processing or use operation under 40 CFR 711.15(b)(4). A processing or use code may be

4.8.1.2 Industrial Sectors
You must select from the drop down box the code which corresponds to the appropriate
Industrial Sector (IS) for all sites that receive a reportable chemical substance from you either
directly or indirectly (including through a broker/distributor, from a customer of yours, etc.) and
that process and use of the reportable chemical substance to the extent that this information is
known to or reasonably ascertainable by you (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(i)(B)). Table 4-10 shows
the codes and sectors which appear in the drop down box. Because an industrial sector may
apply to more than one processing and use scenario for a chemical substance, the same IS code
may be reported with different combinations of IFC and TPU codes.
A listing identifying the correspondence between NAICS codes and IS codes is
provided on the Replacement of 5-digit NAICS Codes with Industrial Sector Codes page of
the CDR website at www.epa.gov/cheMical-data-reporting/replaceMent-5-digit-naics-codes-
industrial-sector-codes. Submitters who do not know a specific NAICS code may be able to
identify a more general category.
When you chose the IS "Other," you also need to provide a written description of the
use of the chemical substance. Your description may include the NAICS code.

4.8.1.4 Percentage of Production Volume
Estimate the percentage of total 2015 production volume that is attributable to each
unique combination of TPU, IS, and IFC. The percentage should be accurate to the extent that it
is known to or reasonably ascertainable by you. Round your estimates to the nearest 10 percent
of production volume (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(i)(D)). If you would like to provide more specific
percentages, please do so. Do not round a particular combination that accounts for less than five
percent of the total production volume to zero percent if the production volume attributable to
that combination is greater than or equal to 25,000 lb. In such cases, you must report the
percentage of production volume attributable to that combination to the nearest one percent of
production volume (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(i)(D)).
The total percentage of
production volumes associated
with the TPU, IS, and IFC
combinations may add up to more
than 100 percent, given that you
are reporting on distribution of a
chemical substance to sites in
your control as well as
downstream sites, some of which
are not immediate purchasers
from your original manufacturing
site. Additionally, the total
percentage of production volume
may add up to less than 100
percent if, for example:
•	You do not know or cannot reasonably ascertain information about how all of your
production volume is processed or used;
•	More than 10 combinations of codes are applicable to your chemical substance; or
•	You export a portion of the production volume.
Table 4-12 provides examples of reporting industrial processing and use data.
How to determine your percent production volume:
1.	Determine the production volume that is attributable
to each unique combination of TPU, IS, and IFC.
2.	Determine your total production volume for 2015.
a.	Add together the volume domestically
manufactured and the volume imported.
b.	DO NOT subtract the volume used on-site
or the volume exported
3.	Divide the volume determined in step 1 by the
volume determined in step 2 and multiply by 100.

4.8.1.6 Number of Workers Code
For each unique combination of Type of Process or Use Operation, Industrial Sector, and
Industrial Function Category, estimate the total number of workers that are reasonably likely to
be exposed to the chemical substance at sites that process or use the chemical substance (40
CFR 711.15(b)(4)(i)(F)). Include workers at sites that are not under your control as well as those
sites you control. For each chemical substance, select from the drop down box the code that
corresponds to the estimated range of the number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed. To
claim this information as confidential, check the box adjacent to the reported information. Table
4-14 shows the codes and worker ranges which appear in the drop down box.

"Reasonably likely to be exposed" means "an exposure to a chemical substance which,
under foreseeable conditions of manufacture (including import), processing, distribution in
commerce, or use of the chemical substance, is more likely to occur than not to occur. Such
exposures would normally include, but would not be limited to, activities such as charging
reactor vessels, drumming, bulk loading, cleaning equipment, maintenance operations,
materials handling and transfers, and analytical operations. Covered exposures include
exposures through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, absorption, etc.), but
excludes accidental or theoretical exposures" (40 CFR 711.3).
Persons reasonably likely to be exposed to a chemical substance include workers whose
employment requires them to pass through areas where chemical substances are manufactured,
processed, or used (e.g., production workers and foremen, process engineers, and plant
managers). Workers employed to drive vehicles that transport the chemical substances should
be included in the number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance
if they come into contact with the chemical substance during loading or unloading. For example,
workers engaged in the connection or disengagement of hoses used to load or unload the
chemical substance should be included. However, workers involved solely with transporting
chemical substances in sealed (totally enclosed with no potential for exposure) containers
should not be included.
In addition, when a site employs temporary, seasonal, or contract workers in the
manufacture of a reportable chemical substance, these workers should be included in the
number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to a chemical substance if they work in areas
wherethe chemical substance is manufactured. The term does not include those employees
4-34

-------
Chapter 4
Instructions for Completing CDR Form U
whose jobs are unassociated with potential exposures to a chemical substance or mixture (e.g.,
administrative staff who never enter areas where the chemical substance is manufactured) and
who are unlikely to be exposed to a chemical substance for even a brief period of time. No
allowance is made for personal protective equipment or for engineering controls that reduce but
do not preclude exposure to a chemical substance; however, if contact between a worker and a
chemical substance is highly improbable, the worker should not be included among those
persons reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance.
4.8.2 Part III - Section B. Consumer and Commercial Use Data (Blocks 3.B.1 through 3.B.10)
For purposes of CDR reporting, a commercial use means the use of a chemical substance
or a mixture (including as part of an article) in a commercial enterprise providing saleable goods
or a service (40 CFR 711.3). A consumer use, on the other hand, means the use of a chemical
substance or a mixture (including as part of an article) when sold to or made available to
consumers for their use (40 CFR 711.3).
You are required to report information that is known to or reasonably ascertainable by
you concerning the consumer and commercial end uses of each chemical substance
manufactured (including imported) at sites you control and at sites controlled by people to
whom you have either directly or indirectly (including through a broker/distributor, from a
customer, etc.) distributed the reportable chemical substance (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)).

You must designate up to ten product categories which correspond to the actual use of
the chemical substance by selecting from the drop down box the codes which correspond to the
appropriate product categories (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(A)). The reporting tool will allow you
to enter more than ten categories if you choose to do so. Table 4-15 shows the codes and product
categories which appear in the drop down box.
If you select C909 (Other), you must provide a description of the product category. If
more than ten codes apply, you need report only the ten codes for the chemical substance that
cumulatively represent the largest percentage of production volume, measured by weight (40

4.8.2.2	Consumer and/or Commercial Use
For each Product Category reported, select from the drop down box in the "Consumer
and/or Commercial" column in Part III.B of Form U the options to indicate whether the use is a
consumer use or a commercial use (40 CFR 711.15b)(4)(ii)(B). If the product has both
consumer and commercial uses, select both options.
4.8.2.3	Use in Product(s) Intended for Use by Children
Within each consumer product category reported, you must determine whether any
amount of each reportable chemical substance manufactured (including imported) by you is
present in or on any consumer product(s) intended for use by children age 14 or younger,
regardless of the concentration of the chemical substance remaining in or on the product (40
CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(C)). If you determine that your chemical substance or mixture is used in a
consumer product intended for use by children, select "Yes" from the drop down box in the
"Used in Product(s) Intended for Children" column in Part III.B of Form U. If you determine
that your chemical substance or mixture is not used in a consumer product intended for use by
children, select "No" from the drop down box. If information as to whether the chemical
substance is used in or on any consumer products intended for use by children is not known to
or reasonably ascertainable by you, select "NKRA" from the drop down box. If your chemical
substance is not used in products intended for use by children (i.e., you answered 'No' in Part
III.B), you are encouraged not to claim the information as confidential.
EPA defines "intended for use by children" to mean the chemical substance or mixture
is used in or on a product that is specifically intended for use by children age 14 or younger (40
CFR 711.3). Your chemical substance or mixture is intended for use by children if you answer
"yes" to at least one of the following questions about the product into which your chemical
substance or mixture is incorporated:
•	Is the product commonly recognized (i.e., by a reasonable person) as being intended for
use by children age 14 or younger?
•	Does the manufacturer of the product state through product labeling or other written
materials that the product is intended or will be used by children age 14 or
younger?
4-37

-------
Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
• Is the advertising, promotion, or marketing of the product aimed at children age 14 or
younger?
Table 4-16 illustrates some examples of "Use in Product(s) Intended for Use by
Children." For example, certain products (e.g., crayons, coloring books, diapers, and toy cars)
are typically used by children age 14 or younger. If you determine that your chemical substance
or mixture is used in crayons, for example, you would report "Y" for children's use for C305.
Certain products, such as household cleaning products, automotive supplies, and
lubricants, typically are not intended to be used by children age 14 or younger. As such, if you
determine that your chemical substance or mixture is used in automotive care products and
lubricants, for example, you would report "no" for children's use for categories C401 and
C402.

4.8.2.4 Percentage of Production Volume
Estimate the percentage of your production volume that is attributable to each specific
consumer and commercial end use carried out at sites under your control, as well as at sites that
receive a reportable chemical substance from you either directly or indirectly (including
through a broker/distributor, from a customer, etc.), to the extent that such information is

Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
known to or reasonably ascertainable to you (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(D)). You should round
estimates to the nearest ten percent of production volume (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(D)). If you
would like to provide more specific percentages, please do so. You may not round a consumer
and commercial product category that accounts for five percent or less of the total production
volume attributable to that consumer and commercial product category is greater than or equal
to 25,000 lb. (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(D). In such cases, you must report the percentage of
production volume attributable to that consumer and commercial product category to the
nearest one percent of the production volume (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(D).
Note that the total
percentage of production
volumes reported may add up
to more or less than 100
percent. Rounding to the
nearest ten percent can result in
summed percentages either
above or below 100 percent.
Additionally, the total
percentage of production
volume may add up to less than
100 percent if, for example:
•	You do not know or cannot reasonably ascertain information about how all your
production volume is used in consumer and commercial products;
•	More than ten commercial or consumer product categories are applicable to your
chemical substance; or
•	A portion of your production is consumed in industrial uses or exported.
4.8.2.5	Maximum Concentration Code
When the chemical substance you manufacture (including import) is used in commercial
or consumer products, you are required to report the estimated typical maximum concentration
(measured by weight) of each chemical substance in each commercial or consumer product
category reported in Part III of Form U (40 CFR 711.15(b)(4)(ii)(E)). For each chemical
substance used in a reported commercial or consumer product, select from the drop down box the
code that corresponds to the appropriate concentration range. Table 4-7 shows the codes and
concentration ranges which appear in the drop down box.
4.8.2.6	Number of Commercial Workers Code
Report the total number of commercial workers, including those at sites not under your
control that are reasonably likely to be exposed while using the reportable chemical substance,
with respect to each commercial use (40 CFR 711.15(B)(4)(II)(F)). For each chemical substance
with a commercial use reported in Part III, select code which corresponds to the appropriate
range of commercial workers reasonably likely to be exposed. Table 4-14 shows the code and
worker ranges which appear in the drop down box.
"Reasonably likely to be exposed" means "an exposure to a chemical substance which,
under foreseeable conditions of manufacture (including import), processing, distribution in
4-39
How to determine your percent production volume:
1.	Determine the production volume that is attributable to
each consumer and commercial end use.
2.	Determine your total production volume for 2015.
a.	Add together the volume domestically
manufactured and the volume imported.
b.	DO NOT subtract the volume used on-site or the
volume exported
3.	Divide the volume determined in step 1 by the volume
determined in step 2 and multiply by 100.

commerce, or use of the chemical substance, is more likely to occur than not to occur. Such
exposures would normally include, but would not be limited to, activities such as charging
reactor vessels, drumming, bulk loading, cleaning equipment, maintenance operations,
materials handling and transfers, and analytical operations. Such exposures also include
commercial worker exposure during the use phase which could include but is not limited to
using cleaning products, paints, dry cleaning solvents, and adhesives. Covered exposures
include exposures through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, absorption,
etc.), but excludes accidental or theoretical exposures" (40 CFR 711.3).
Persons reasonably likely to be exposed to a chemical substance include workers whose
employment requires them to pass through areas where chemical substances are processed or
used (e.g., production workers and foremen, process engineers, and plant managers). Workers
employed to drive vehicles that transport the chemical substances should be included in the
number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance if they come into
contact with the chemical substance during loading or unloading. For example, workers engaged
in the connection or disengagement of hoses used to load or unload the chemical substance
should be included. However, workers involved solely with transporting chemical substances in
sealed (totally enclosed with no potential for exposure) containers should not be included.
Similarly, workers employed during the use phase at sites not under your control such as
workers that provide commercial cleaning services, painting, dry cleaning, and repairs should be
included in the number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance.
In addition, when a site employs temporary, seasonal, or contract workers in the
processing or use of a reportable chemical substance, these workers should be included in the
number of workers reasonably likely to be exposed to a chemical substance if they work in areas
where the chemical substance is processed or used. The term does not include those employees
whose jobs are unassociated with potential exposures to a chemical substance or mixture (e.g.,
administrative staff who never enter areas where the chemical substance is manufactured) and
who are unlikely to be exposed to a chemical substance for even a brief period of time. No
allowance is made for personal protective equipment or for engineering controls that reduce but
do not preclude exposure to a chemical substance; however, if contact between a worker and a
chemical substance is highly improbable, the worker should not be included among those
persons reasonably likely to be exposed to the chemical substance.
4.9 Part IV - Joint Submissions
4.9.1 Need for a Joint Submission
Joint submissions are allowed only in those instances where a supplier will not disclose to
the manufacturer (including importer) the specific chemical name of the imported chemical
substance or of a reactant used to manufacture a chemical substance, because the supplier claims
the specific chemical name is confidential.
This may happen, for instance, when a company is importing a mixture under a trade
name, and the foreign manufacturer refuses to reveal the chemical identity of a confidential
component of the mixture. In this case, the importer and the supplier can jointly report the
information through a joint submission. The importer must ask the supplier of the confidential
chemical substance to directly provide EPA with the correct chemical identity in Part IV of Form
U (see 40 CFR 711.15 (b)(3 )(i)(A)).
4-40

-------
Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
This may also happen in the event a manufacturer cannot provide the entire chemical
identity of a chemical substance it manufactures because the chemical substance is manufactured
using a reactant having a specific chemical identity that the reactant supplier claims as
confidential and will not reveal to the manufacturer. In this case, the manufacturer and the
supplier of the reactant can jointly report the information through a joint submission. The
manufacturer must submit a report directly to EPA containing all information he or she knows or
can reasonably ascertain about the chemical identity. Furthermore, the manufacturer must also
ask the reactant supplier to directly provide to EPA the correct chemical identity of the
confidential reactant in Part IV of Form U (see 40 CFR 711.15(b)(3)(i)(B)). More detailed
instructions for completing a joint submission can be found in the e-CDRweb user guides.
A manufacturer (including importer) can identify, on a chemical-by-chemical basis, the
supplier for a chemical substance. A site may have different suppliers for different chemical
substances in its submission. The e-CDRweb tool will generate a unique ID number for each
chemical substance (identified by a trade name). Therefore, a supplier may receive multiple ID
numbers from a manufacturer (including importer). A supplier may also report multiple
chemical substances under one ID number in the case that the ID number refers to a mixture. In
that situation, the supplier will be identifying the chemical substances that comprise the
mixture.
Because signatures are required by each party of a joint submission, they must each
register with CDX, and complete their own sections of the same Form U report. (See separate
Instructions documents for electronic reporting). The reporting tool will match both submissions
based upon the unique ID number sent by the manufacturer (including importer) to notify the
supplier of the partial CDR submission. Suppliers do not have access to any of the information
submitted to EPA by the manufacturer. Likewise, manufacturers cannot see the information that
the supplier reports to EPA. This way, the confidentiality of information for all submitters is
protected. The information provided by both submitters will be combined and processed as one
joint submission once they are received by EPA.
NOTE: In the event that a manufacturer (including importer) actually knows or can
reasonably ascertain the chemical identity (e.g., the CASRN or Accession Number) of a
chemical substance subject to CDR reporting, the manufacturer (including importer) must
provide that information irrespective of a supplier's confidentiality claims. If such a
primary submitter wishes to claim the chemical identity as confidential, to do so it must
check the CBI box and provide upfront substantiation as described in 4.6.1 of this chapter.
4.9.2 Submitting as a Manufacturer (including Importer) or Primary Submitter
If you are a manufacturer (including importer), as primary submitter, you should:
1.	Register with CDX. See separate instructions on CDX registration.
2.	Complete Parts II and III of Form U for all your reportable chemical substances as
described earlier in this chapter. If you would like to create a joint submission, you can add one
or more joint submission folders (one for each trade product) for each reportable chemical
substance supplied to you by clicking the "Add Joint Submission" button from the bottom Action

Follow the instructions in the box labeled "Unique Identifier for Joint Submission" to
communicate with the secondary submitter via email. The tool will generate an email with a
unique ID number and language that you can use to notify your secondary submitter of the
partial CDR submission containing information for the trade name product. The ID number will
be used to link the joint reports in an internal database. The email will request that the secondary
submitter report the correct chemical identity information to EPA using e-CDRweb and refer
them to the CDR web site (www.epa.gov/cdr) for information on registering with CDX and
completing Part IV of Form U. You can indicate whether you would like the tool to send a copy
of your email to EPA, thereby providing a record of the request to the secondary submitter.

4.9.3 Submitting as a Supplier, as a Secondary or Tertiary Submitter
4.9.3.1 Secondary and Tertiary Submitters
In most cases, the supplier will manufacture the chemical substance being supplied to the
manufacturer and will therefore be able to provide EPA with the information requested in Part
IV of Form U. In this case, the supplier will be the secondary submitter.
However, there may be instances where a foreign supplier purchases a mixture, under a
trade name, from another company (tertiary company) and does not know the chemical
components of the mixture. The foreign supplier can ask the company manufacturing the trade
secret mixture or chemical substance to directly provide EPA with the correct chemical identity
in Part IV of Form U. In this case, the tertiary company would register with CDX and use the
Unique Identifier for Joint Submissions, sent to the foreign supplier by the manufacturer
(including importer), to complete Part IV of Form U.
The foreign supplier does not have access to any of the information submitted to EPA by
the tertiary company. Likewise, the tertiary company cannot see the information the foreign
supplier reports to EPA. This way, the confidentiality of information for both the foreign supplier
and tertiary company is protected.
The supplier, whether a secondary submitter or a tertiary submitter, should:
1.	Register with CDX. See separate instructions on registering with CDX.
2.	Complete Part IV of Form U.

In the case of a chemical substance listed on the confidential portion of the TSCA
Inventory, a secondary or tertiary submitter does not need to claim the underlying chemical
identity CBI or provide upfront substantiation. For such a chemical substance, EPA will presume
that the chemical identity associated with the Accession Number is subject to a confidentiality
claim when it is reported by a secondary or tertiary submitter. See the next section for more
information on reporting a chemical substance listed on the confidential portion of the TSCA
Inventory. In addition, EPA will presume that the information reported in Section 4.D. of Form
U, and the connection between the chemical identity and the primary company associated with
the joint submission, is subject to a confidentiality claim when it is reported by a secondary
submitter. Likewise, EPA will presume that the information reported in Section 4.D. of Form U,
and the connection between the chemical identity and the secondary company associated with
the joint submission, is subject to a confidentiality claim when it is reported by a tertiary
submitter.
Step 3: Enter the percent composition of each component chemical substance of

Chapter 4
Instructions for Comyleting CDR Form U
4.9.4 Reporting a Confidential Chemical Substance
In the case of confidential chemical substances, report the TSCA Accession Number (the
generic name corresponding to the Accession Number will automatically be incorporated into
your report). Submitters who, in the past, have reported using the PMN case number of a
confidential chemical substance can identify the Accession Number from the SRS by searching
on the PMN case number. In the SRS, a submitter can readily find a cross-reference list that
displays the Accession Number, generic chemical name, and the PMN case number (or for an
initial TSCA Inventory chemical substance, the TSCA Inventory reporting form number) for any
confidential chemical substance listed on the TSCA Inventory. Please note that a generic name
often is not specific to a given TSCA Inventory chemical substance and may be used to represent
multiple specific chemical identities. The TSCA Accession Number, however, is unique to the
specific confidential chemical substance.
Submitters who are not able to identify the Accession Number by searching the SRS
should contact EPA, in writing or via fax on company letterhead, well before initiating CDR
reporting to obtain the Accession Number assigned when the Notice of Commencement (NOC)
was submitted to the Agency. Individuals are urged to submit a complete and accurate TSCA
Inventory Correspondence via fax or by U.S. mail at least one month before the submission
deadline. Note that incomplete and/or inaccurate requests may be rejected. The Agency will
respond to such inquiries in as timely a manner as possible. It is the responsibility of the
submitter to contact the Agency for such information in sufficient time to allow for the Agency
to respond.
Please send requests for a TSCA Accession Number as soon as possible to:

Industrial use means use at a site at which one or more chemical substances or mixtures
are manufactured (including imported) or processed.
Intended for use by children means the chemical substance or mixture is used in a
product that is specifically intended for use by children age 14 or younger. A chemical substance
or mixture is intended for use by children when the submitter answers "yes" to at least one of the
following questions for the product into which the submitter's chemical substance or mixture is
incorporated:
(1)	Is the product commonly recognized (i.e., by a reasonable person) as being intended
for children age 14 or younger?

(ii)	For use by the manufacturer, including use for product research and
development, or as an intermediate.
(2) Manufacture for commercial purposes also applies to substances that are produced
coincidentally during the manufacture, processing, use, or disposal of another substance or
mixture, including both byproducts that are separated from that other substance or mixture
and impurities that remain in that substance or mixture. Such byproducts and impurities
may, or may not, in themselves have commercial value. They are nonetheless produced for
the purpose of obtaining a commercial advantage since they are part of the manufacture of
a chemical product for a commercial purpose. (40 CFR 704.3)

§720.120 of this chapter.
Microorganism means any combination of chemical substances that is a living organism
and that meets the definition of microorganism at 40 CFR 725.3. Any chemical substance
produced from a living microorganism is reportable under the CDR regulation unless otherwise
excluded.
Mixture means any combination of two or more chemical substances if the combination
does not occur in nature and is not, in whole or in part, the result of a chemical reaction; except
that such term does include any combination which occurs, in whole or in part, as a result of a
chemical reaction if none of the chemical substances comprising the combination is a new
chemical substance and if the combination could have been manufactured for commercial
purposes without a chemical reaction at the time the chemical substances comprising the
combination were combined. (TSCA 3(8))
Naturally occurring substance is any chemical substance which is naturally occurring
and: (1) which is (i) unprocessed or (ii) processed only by manual, mechanical, or gravitational
means, by dissolution in water, by flotation, or by heating solely to remove water; or (2) which is
extracted from air by any means. (40 CFR 710.4(b))
Non-isolated intermediate means any intermediate that is not intentionally removed
from the equipment in which it is manufactured, including the reaction vessel in which it is
manufactured, equipment which is ancillary to the reaction vessel, and any equipment through
which the substance passes during a continuous flow process, but not including tanks or other
vessels in which the substance is stored after its manufacture. (40 CFR 704.3)
Person means any individual, firm, company, corporation, joint venture, partnership, sole
proprietorship, association, or any other business entity; any State or political subdivision
thereof, or any municipality; any interstate body; and any department, agency, or instrumentality
of the Federal government. (40 CFR 704.3)
Polymer means any chemical substance described with the word fragments "*polym*",
"*alkyd", or "oxylated" in the Chemical Abstracts (CA) Index Name in the Master Inventory
File, where the asterisk (*) in the listed word fragments indicates that any sets of characters may
precede, or follow, the character string defined. Polymers also include any chemical substance
which is identified in the Master Inventory File as siloxane(s) and silicone(s), silsesquioxane(s),
a protein (albumin, casein, gelatin, gluten, hemoglobin), an enzyme, a polysaccharide (starch,
cellulose, or gum), rubber, or lignin. The polymer exclusion does not apply to a polymeric

substance that has been hydrolyzed, depolymerized, or otherwise chemically modified, except in
cases where the intended product of this reaction is totally polymeric in structure.
Principal reporting year means the latest complete calendar year preceding the
submission period.
Process means to process for commercial purposes. (40 CFR 704.3)
Process for commercial purposes means the preparation of a chemical substance or
mixture after its manufacture for distribution in commerce with the purpose of obtaining an
immediate or eventual commercial advantage for the processor. Processing of any amount of a
chemical substance or mixture is included in this definition. If a chemical substance or mixture
containing impurities is processed for commercial purposes, then the impurities also are
processed for commercial purposes. (40 CFR 704.3)
Processor means any person who processes a chemical substance or mixture. (40 CFR
704.3)
Reasonably likely to be exposed means an exposure to a chemical substance which,
under foreseeable conditions of manufacture (including import), processing, distribution in
commerce, or use of the chemical substance, is more likely to occur than not to occur. Such
exposures would normally include, but would not be limited to, activities such as charging
reactor vessels, drumming, bulk loading, cleaning equipment, maintenance operations, materials
handling and transfers, and analytical operations. Covered exposures include exposures through
any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, absorption, etc.), but excludes accidental
or theoretical exposures.
Repackaging means the physical transfer of a chemical substance or mixture, as is, from
one container to another container or containers in preparation for distribution of the chemical
substance or mixture in commerce.
Reportable chemical substance means a chemical substance described in §711.5.
Site means a contiguous property unit. Property divided only by a public right-of-way
shall be considered one site. More than one plant may be located on a single site.
(a)	For chemical substances manufactured under contract, i.e., by a toll manufacturer, the
site is the location where the chemical substance is physically manufactured.
(b)	The site for an importer who imports a chemical substance described in §711.5 is the
U.S. site of the operating unit within the person's organization that is directly responsible
for importing the substance. The import site, in some instances, may be the organization's
headquarters in the United States. If there is no such operating unit or headquarters in the
United States, the site address for the importer is the United States address of an agent
acting on behalf of the importer who is authorized to accept service of process for the
importer.

Appendix A
Glossary
(c) For portable manufacturing units sent out to different locations from a single
distribution center, the distribution center shall be considered the site.
Site-limited means a chemical substance is manufactured and processed only within a
site and is not distributed for commercial purposes as a substance or as part of a mixture or
article outside the site. Imported substances are never site-limited. Although a site-limited
chemical substance is not distributed for commercial purposes outside the site at which it is
manufactured and processed, the substance is considered to have been manufactured and
processed for commercial purposes.
Small quantities solely for research and development (or "small quantities solely for
purposes of scientific experimentation or analysis or chemical research on, or analysis of, such
substance or another substance, including such research or analysis for the development of a
product") means quantities of a chemical substance manufactured, imported, or processed or
proposed to be manufactured, imported, or processed solely for research and development that
are no greater than reasonably necessary for such purposes. (40 CFR 704.3)
State means any State of the United States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth
of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Canal Zone, American Samoa, the Northern
Mariana Islands, or any other territory or possession of the United States. (TSCA 3(13))
Submission period means the period in which manufacturing, processing, and use data
are submitted to EPA.
Test marketing means the distribution in commerce of no more than a predetermined
amount of chemical substance, mixture, or article containing that chemical substance or mixture,
or a mixture containing that substance, by a manufacturer or processor, to no more than a defined
number of potential customers to explore market capability in a competitive situation during a
predetermined testing period prior to the broader distribution of that chemical substance,
mixture, or article in commerce. (40 CFR 704.3)
United States, when used in the geographic sense, means all of the States. (TSCA 3(14))
U.S. Parent Company means the highest level company, located in the United States
that directly owns at least 50 percent of the voting stock of the manufacturer.
Use means any utilization of a chemical substance or mixture that is not otherwise
covered by the terms manufacture or process. Relabeling or redistributing a container holding a
chemical substance or mixture where no repackaging of the chemical substance or mixture
occurs does not constitute use or processing of the chemical substance or mixture.

Chemical Substances that are the Subject of Certain TSCA Actions
Appendix B
Chemical Substances that Are the Subject of Certain TSCA Actions
This appendix provides assistance in determining whether your chemical substance is the
subject of certain TSCA actions that affect your ability to use the exemptions allowed for in the
CDR rule. Certain chemical substances, such as polymers, microorganisms, naturally occurring
substances, certain natural gases, and water, generally are exempted from reporting under CDR (see
40 CFR 711.6). Small manufactures as described in 40 CFR 711.9 also generally are exempted
from reporting under CDR. Table B-l provides a brief description of these two provisions. If,
however, a chemical substance is the subject of certain TSCA actions, the exemption may no longer
be applicable. Table B-2 provides a comparison of the effects of TSCA actions on different CDR
requirements or exemptions. See Section 2-19 for further discussion.
You can access a list of the chemical substances using EPA's Substance Registry Services
(SRS) at www.epa.gov/srs. In SRS, you can search for either a specific chemical or you can search
for a complete list of chemicals related to a type of regulation or other characteristic that affects the
status of a chemical related to CDR. Note that CDR submitters are ultimately responsible for
adhering to a chemical's reporting requirements that are based upon the status of the chemical in
SRS on June 1, 2016, which is the first day of the CDR submission period.
To search for a specific chemical, visit the SRS "Search and Retrieve" webpage, type in a
substance name in the "Synonym" field or a CASRN in the "Substance Identifier" field, and select
"Search". Link to the chemical result that most closely meets your search needs. Select "Program
and Regulatory Information." You can see the "Statutes/Regulations" and other characteristics that
apply to the chemical.
To search for a list of chemicals that are related to a regulation or other CDR-related
characteristic, visit the SRS "Search and Retrieve" webpage and select "Search by List". Select the
chemical list that you would like to view and select "Search." To see only 2016 CDR-specific lists,
type "2016 CDR" in the "Filter" box and select "Filter."
For more detailed instructions, view How to Search for Chemicals that are the Subject of Certain TSCA
Actions on the CDR website.

711 Ueqiiireinenls
§711.6
Some groups or categories of chemical substances are
exempted from some or all of the reporting
requirements of this part, with the following
exception: A chemical substance described in
paragraph (a)(1), (a)(2), or (a)(4), or (b) of this
section is not exempted from any of the reporting
requirements of this part if that chemical substance is
the subject of a rule proposed or promulgated under
TSCA section 4, 5(a)(2), 5(b)(4), or 6, or is the
subject of a consent agreement developed under the
procedures of 40 CFR part 790, or is the subject of an
order issued under TSCA section 5(e) or 5(f), or is the
subject of relief that has been granted under a civil
action under TSCA section 5 or 7...
Information must be reported
for chemical substances that
would otherwise be wholly
or partially exempted from
CDR requirements because
they are the subject of certain
TSCA actions.
§711.9
A person described in § 711.8 is not subject to the
requirements of this part if that person qualifies as a
small manufacturer as that term is defined in 40 CFR
704.3. Notwithstanding this exclusion, a person who
qualifies as a small manufacturer is subject to this
part with respect to any chemical substance that is the
subject of a rule proposed or promulgated under
TSCA section 4, 5(b)(4), or 6, or is the subject of an
order in effect under TSCA section 5(e), or is the
subject of relief that has been granted under a civil
action under TSCA section 5 or 7.
The exemption for small
businesses does not apply to
persons who manufacture
(including import) a
chemical substance that is the
subject of certain TSCA
actions. Even in such
circumstances, however, the
volume thresholds for
reporting found in §711.8
still apply.

Code
Operation
Description
PC
Processing as a reactant
Chemical substance is used in chemical reactions for the
manufacturing of another chemical substance or product.
PF
Processing—incorporation into
formulation, mixture, or reaction product
Chemical substance is added to a product (or product
mixture) prior to further distribution of the product.
PA
Processing—incorporation into article
Chemical substance becomes an integral component of an
article distributed for industrial, trade, or consumer use.
PK
Processing—repackaging
Preparation of a chemical substance for distribution in
commerce in a different form, state, or quantity. This includes
transferring the chemical substance from a bulk container into
smaller containers. This definition does not apply to sites that
only relabel or redistribute the reportable chemical substance
without removing the chemical substance from the container
in which it is received or purchased.
U
Use—non-incorporative activities
Chemical substance is otherwise used (e.g., as a chemical
processing or manufacturing aid).
