1 Introduction
1.1 Overview
This document presents the user guide for the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT)
For Your Information (FYI) application submission process. This document is the user guide for
the Primary Support user of the FYI tool. General information on FYIs is available on the TSCA
Section 8(e) website available at http://www.epa.gov/oppt/tsca8e/. Information on CDX
registration, including user roles that apply to completing a FYI Submission Notice, is available
at http://cdx.epa.gov/About/UserGuide.
FYI submissions are from a classification system established by the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) to distinguish voluntary submissions from substantial risk notices, also known as
Section 8(e) Notices, which are formally submitted to EPA under TSCA Section 8(e). The FYI
classification was created by EPA to capture submissions by people and organizations not
subject to the reporting requirements, but who desire to inform EPA of potential toxic substances
that may pose a risk to human health or to the environment.
EPA has received FYI submissions covering a wide variety of chemical substances and mixtures
from chemical companies, trade associations, unions, public interest groups, civic associations,
private citizens, academic institutions, state and other federal agencies, as well as similar
organizations and agencies in foreign countries. These submissions contain information on
human exposure, epidemiology, toxicity test results, monitoring studies, environmental fate, and
other information that may be important to risk assessment.
Sometimes FYIs are submitted when a manufacturer, importer, or processor is not sure the
information they have gathered supports a conclusion of substantial risk. FYI submissions are
often submitted to the Agency when a person or company that is not required to submit would
like to bring a chemical's risk information to EPA's attention. Chemical companies, trade
associations, public interest groups, and academic institutions are among those who submit FYIs.
The FYI application is an electronic, web-based tool provided by EPA for the submission of FYI
data. As a Primary Support, you can edit a submission created by a Primary Authorized Official
(AO). You are only able to access submissions to which the Primary AO has granted access..
This electronic application is optional for the production and submission of these filings.
Potential users may find that the use of this application saves time, burden and, because it is in an
electronic format, provides easy access to reporting forms. Potential users are reminded to
carefully read and follow application instructions. Persons who wish to use this application must
address all provisions in the application including those relating to indexing information (i.e.,
company name, address, chemical name, etc.) and those related to Confidential Business
Information (CBI) submissions, including the requirement for the submission of sanitized or
redacted filings.
If data is claimed as CBI, it will not be made available to the public unless EPA determines that
the information is not entitled to confidential treatment in accordance with the Agency
confidentiality regulations at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 2, subpart B.
For questions concerning the FYI software requirements, please contact the CDX Help Desk at
helpdesk@epacdx.net or call 1-888-890-1995 between the hours of 8am - 6pm Eastern Standard

Time (EST). For Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) FYI submissions, please contact the
TSCA Hotline at TSCA-Hotline@epamail.epa.gov or call 202-554-1404.
1.2 Labeling Confidential Information
This user guide presents instructions and screenshots for the 'TSCA FYI Submission' electronic
application as if you were logged in as a Primary Support. As the Primary Support you are able
to edit or modify an FYI submission. The user may claim certain information as Confidential
Business Information (CBI). If the data is claimed as CBI, it will be treated in accordance with
the Agency confidentiality regulations at 40 CFR part 2, subpart B..
This TSCA 'FYI Submission' electronic application is optional for the production and
submission of these filings. The paper option for filing will continue to be allowed.
Potential users may find that the use of this application saves time, burden and, because it is in an
electronic format, provides easy access to reporting forms. Potential users are reminded to
carefully read and follow application instructions. Persons who wish to use this application must
address all provisions in the application, including those relating to indexing information (i.e.,
company name, address, chemical name etc.) and those related to CBI submissions, including the
requirement for the submission of sanitized or redacted filings.
Please note that certain CBI claims will not be accepted if you choose to use this electronic
application for TSCA FYI Submission. For example, chemical name and/or chemical identity, if
the chemical is listed on the public portion of the TSCA Inventory, may not be claimed as CBI in
a submission using this application. Similarly, the user must enter a non-confidential study title,
because it may not be claimed as CBI. EPA does not expect that such information, if evaluated
under procedures at 40 CFR part 2, subpart B, would generally be found entitled to confidential
treatment.
If the user believes that these or other data elements must be treated as CBI, then the user may
use the paper option to file the FYI Submission and assert CBI claims.
If the user claims an uploaded document as CBI, a sanitized document must be provided.
The following fields can be claimed as CBI within the 'FYI Submission' application:
•	Technical Contact Information
•	Submitting on Behalf of Company information
•	Submitting on Behalf of Consortium information
•	A single chemical substance that is not on the public TSCA Inventory
•	The chemical substances comprising a mixture
•	The percent concentrations of individual chemical substances in a mixture
•	Any document uploaded within the 'Document Management' pop-up window

Validation Errors: Errors are denoted by an 'Error' icon ( -ฆ) and can be fixed by clicking the
error link. The links will display the Screen Title Name (e.g., Chemical Identification) and the
associated error. For example, if you claimed an uploaded document as CBI and have not
attached a sanitized copy prior to validation, the system would display a validation error similar
to 'Document Management: @ You have uploaded a CBI document. A sanitized copy is
required. ' After you click a link, the main application screen will display the screen where the
error occurred so you can easily fix the error. Once you have fixed the error, click the 'Validate'
icon ( ) again to refresh the 'FYI Submission Validation' pop-up window. If the information
you fixed passes validation, the error will be removed from the 'FYI Submission Validation'
pop-up window. All validation errors must be fixed, by the Primary Support or by the Primary
AO, before the Primary AO can successfully submit to EPA via CDX.
Warning Messages: Warnings are denoted by a 'Warning' icon ( ) and can be fixed by
clicking the warning link. The links will display the Screen Title and the associated warning.
After you click a link, the main application screen will display the section where the warning
occurred so you can easily fix the warning. Once you have fixed the warning(s), click the
'Validate' icon (*> again to refresh the 'FYI Submission Validation' pop-up window. If the
information you fixed passes validation, the warning will be removed from the 'FYI Submission
Validation' pop-up window. You can pass validation and continue to submit a form to CDX with
active warning messages.
You can close the 'FYI Submission Validation' pop-up window by clicking the 'X' button
located at the top right of the window.
