Action

Notice.

Summary

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Interagency Testing Committee (ITC) transmitted its 72nd ITC Report to the Acting EPA Administrator on June 13, 2013. In the 72nd ITC Report, which is included with this notice, the ITC is revising the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List by removing 16 chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data, 98 High Production Volume (HPV) Challenge Program orphan chemicals, and 50 diisocyanates and related compounds. The ITC is removing 16 chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data because information from dermal studies can be readily obtained through the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and EPA databases or other authoritative scientific resources. The ITC is removing the 98 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals because they no longer meet the 1 million lb criterion for the HPV Challenge Program. The ITC is removing the 50 diisocyanates and related compounds because their production or importation volumes were not reported to the 2006 Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) rule or the 2012 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule.

Dates

Comments must be received on or before August 23, 2013.

II. Background

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) (15 U.S.C. 260l et seq.) authorizes the Administrator of EPA to promulgate regulations under TSCA section 4(a) requiring testing of chemicals and chemical groups in order to develop data relevant to determining the risks that such chemicals and chemical groups may present to health or the environment. Section 4(e) of TSCA established the ITC to recommend chemicals and chemical groups to the Administrator of EPA for priority testing consideration. Section 4(e) of TSCA directs the ITC to revise the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List at least every 6 months.

I. Background

The ITC was established by TSCA section 4(e) “to make recommendations to the Administrator respecting the chemical substances and mixtures to which the Administrator should give priority consideration for the promulgation of rules for testing under section 4(a) * * * At least every six months * * *, the Committee shall make such revisions to the Priority Testing List as it determines to be necessary and transmit them to the Administrator together with the Committee's reasons for the revisions” (Public Law 94-469, 90 Stat. 2003 et seq., 15 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.). ITC reports are available from the ITC's Web site () and from regulations.gov () after publication in the Federal Register. The ITC produces its revisions to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List with administrative and technical support from the ITC staff and ITC members. ITC members and staff are listed at the end of this report.

II. ITC's Activities During This Reporting Period (December 2012 to May 2013)

The ITC welcomed a new member and new alternate member from the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology and a new member from the National Science Foundation.

During this reporting period, the ITC discussed the 16 chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data, branched 4-nonylphenol (mixed isomers), phenol, 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)-, 148 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals, cadmium and cadmium compounds, 6 non-phthalate plasticizers, 25 phosphate ester and 2 other flame retardants, 9 chemicals to which children living near hazardous waste sites may be exposed, and 69 diisocyanates and related compounds remaining on the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List. As a result of these discussions, the ITC removed 16 chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data, 98 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals, and 50 diisocyanates and related compounds from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List. Orphan chemicals are those HPV chemicals for which no sponsors have volunteered to develop and submit robust summaries of basic hazard and fate testing data to the EPA. The hazard and fate testing data requested by the EPA for HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals are necessary to establish a screening level understanding of their potential human health and environmental impacts. The chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data, HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals and diisocyanates and related compounds are discussed further in Unit III. of this 72nd ITC Report.

As noted in this unit, the ITC also discussed the following chemicals that remain on the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List: Branched 4-nonylphenol (mixed isomers), phenol, 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)-, cadmium and cadmium compounds, 6 non-phthalate plasticizers, 25 phosphate ester flame retardants, 2 other flame retardants, and 9 chemicals to which children living near hazardous waste sites may be exposed.

Branched 4-nonylphenol (mixed isomers) (CAS No. 84852-15-3) and phenol, 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)- (CAS No. 140-66-9) were added to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in the ITC's 37th and 41st Reports along with numerous other alkylphenols, alkylphenol ethoxylates, and poly alkylphenols (Refs. 1 and 2). The remaining data needed for branched 4-nonylphenol (mixed isomers) and phenol, 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)- can be obtained from avian reproduction testing and fish multi-generation testing, respectively. Branched 4-nonylphenol (mixed isomers) and phenol, 4-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)- will remain on the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List until the avian reproduction testing and fish multi-generation testing is completed or other information becomes available to justify removing them from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List.

Cadmium and cadmium compounds were added to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in the ITC's 68th and 69th Reports (Refs. 3 and 4). Cadmium and cadmium compounds were included in a TSCA section 8(d) Health and Safety Data Reporting (HaSDR) rule that was published in the Federal Register of December 3, 2012 (77 FR 71561) (FRL-9355-9). After receiving adverse comments to the HaSDR rule, EPA published a document withdrawing the HaSDR rule in the Federal Register of December 28, 2012 (77 FR 76419) (FRL-9375-3) due to questions and concerns raised about the scope and extent of the HaSDR rule. EPA is considering the questions and concerns raised in response to the HaSDR rule and next steps with regard to that rule.

Six non-phthalate plasticizers, 25 phosphate ester flame retardants, and 2 other flame retardants were added to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in the ITC's 69th Report (Ref. 4). They were added to obtain existing bio-monitoring data on urinary metabolites that will be used to assess the risks of these chemicals. The 2 other flame retardants, 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, 3,4,5,6-tetrabromo-, 1,2-bis(2-ethylhexyl) ester, a.k.a. bis(2-ethyl-1-hexyl) tetrabromophthalate (CAS No. 26040-51-7) and benzoic acid, 2,3,4,5-tetrabromo-, 2-ethylhexyl ester, a.k.a. 2-ethylhexyl-2,3,4,5-tetrabromobenzoate (CAS No. 183658-27-7) are included in the assessment strategy that EPA developed for brominated phthalates ().

The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) and Environment Canada are collaborating on a study involving exposure of American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) to 4 of the phosphate ester flame retardants discussed in the ITC's 69th Report (Ref. 4). The 4 phosphate ester flame retardants include: Ethanol, 2-butoxy-, 1,1',1”-phosphate, a.k.a. tri(2-butoxyethyl) phosphate (CAS No. 78-51-3); ethanol, 2-chloro-, phosphate (3:1), a.k.a. tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (CAS No. 115-96-8); 2-propanol, 1-chloro-, 2,2',2”-phosphate, a.k.a. tris(1-chloro-2-propyl)phosphate (CAS No. 13674-84-5) and 2-propanol, 1,3-dichloro-, phosphate (3:1), a.k.a. tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (CAS#: 13674-87-8). The study will provide novel information on uptake kinetics and potential toxicity of priority phosphate ester flame retardants that are currently found in wild bird eggs in North America. One of these phosphate ester flame retardants, ethanol, 2-chloro-, phosphate (3:1), a.k.a. tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (CAS No. 115-96-8) is included in the risk assessment strategy that EPA is developing for chlorinated phosphate esters ().

Nine chemicals to which children living near hazardous waste sites may be exposed were added to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in the ITC's 69th Report (Ref. 4). They were added to obtain existing biomonitoring data on blood levels that will be used to fill priority data needs that were identified during the development of ATSDR's Toxicological Profiles. Priority data needs are published in the Federal Register and represent a wide variety of needs, including biomonitoring studies to help establish reference values for exposed populations as well as background levels for the general population (). The 9 chemicals to which children living near hazardous waste sites may be exposed are from the current unfilled priority data needs and any biomonitoring data will be used to conduct public health assessments. The EPA is deliberating options for satisfying the data needs for these 9 chemicals.

III. Chemicals Removed From the TSCA Section (4)(e)

A. Chemicals With Insufficient Dermal Absorption Rate Data

In its 31st, 32nd, and 35th ITC Reports, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requested that the ITC add 24, 34, and 25 chemicals, respectively, to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List and designate them for testing to develop dermal absorption rate data (Refs. 5, 6, and 7). The ITC removed methyl methacrylate and diethyl phthalate from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in its 34th ITC Report (Ref. 8) and cyclohexanone from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in its 36th ITC Report (Ref. 9). Methyl methacrylate, diethyl phthalate, and cyclohexanone were removed from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List because dermal absorption rate data were identified after these chemicals were added to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List. In its 45th ITC Report (Ref. 10), the ITC removed 47 chemicals designated for dermal absorption rate testing from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing Lis t, because the EPA published a rule proposing dermal absorption rate testing for these chemicals (Ref. 11). In 2004, the EPA reviewed more recent production volume, exposure, and dermal absorption rate data and promulgated a rule requiring dermal absorption rate testing for 34 of these chemicals (Ref. 12). The rationales for EPA's decision not to finalize testing requirements for the other 13 chemicals in the proposed rule are described in Ref. 11. In its 59th ITC Report, the ITC removed 16 more chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List (Ref. 13). The ITC removed these 16 chemicals because their production volumes indicated low potential for occupational exposures. In this 72nd ITC Report, the ITC is removing the 16 remaining chemicals with insufficient dermal absorption rate data from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List (Table 2 of this unit). OSHA determined that for these 16 chemicals, information from dermal studies can be readily obtained through the OECD existing chemical database (eChemPortal), the EPA HPV database (High Production Volume Information System (HPVIS) or other authoritative scientific resources (Ref. 14). The ITC is removing these chemicals as a result of OSHA's determination that sufficient information is currently available on the dermal absorption characteristics of these chemicals to warrant their removal from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List.

B. HPV Challenge Program Orphan Chemicals

In 2004, at the EPA's request, the ITC added 281 HPV Challenge Program orphan (unsponsored) chemicals to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in the ITC's 55th and 56th Reports (Refs. 15 and 16). As of December 2012, 133 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals had been removed from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List because they were included in EPA's test rules, the testing was voluntarily sponsored or because they no longer met the > 1 million lb criterion for the HPV Challenge Program. Based on data received from the 2006 IUR rule, and the 2012 CDR rule, EPA identified 98 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals with production volumes consistently below 1 million lb. Since these 98 chemicals no longer exceed the 1 million lb criterion for the HPV Challenge Program, EPA is requesting their removal from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in this 72nd ITC Report (Ref. 17). The 98 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals being removed from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List are listed in Table 3 of this unit. The 50 HPV Challenge Program orphan chemicals remaining on the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List are listed in Table 4 of this unit.

C. Diisocyanates and Related Compounds

At the request of the current EPA member to the ITC, 69 diisocyanates and related compounds were added to the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in the ITC's 69th Report. They were added to obtain numerous data on diisocyanates and related compounds used to formulate a broad class of polyurethane products (e.g., sealants, adhesives, etc.) that are intended to further react upon end-use (Ref. 4). The EPA determined that 50 of these diisocyanates and related compounds were not reported to the EPA's 2006 IUR and 2012 CDR rules. Since these 50 diisocyanates and related compounds were not reported to the EPA's 2006 IUR and 2012 CDR rules, EPA is requesting their removal from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List in this 72nd ITC Report (Ref. 17). The 50 diisocyanates and related compounds being removed from the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List are listed in Table 5 of this unit. The 19 diisocyanates and related compounds remaining on the TSCA section 4(e) Priority Testing List are listed in Table 6 of this unit.
