The deadline for Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) from manufacturers to EPA has under the TSCA act has been extended to January 29, 2021. Lately, the final date for reporting the CDR was November 30, 2020.


The chemical data reporting is a rule under the TSCA act, which requires the manufacturers & importers in the USA to provide the information on production & usage of the chemicals to EPA. In this way, EPA could contain the information of the commercial types of chemicals usage, types & quantities. The CDR database contains the most comprehensive sources of basic screening level & exposure-related information on chemicals, which can be used in a further level of protecting the people.

The recent deadline extension was based on the comments & concerns provided by the various stakeholders of the country based on the technical issues they were experiencing electronic reporting through the EPA’s Central data exchange (CDX) system & the lack of responsible workers availability due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The companies that are manufacturing or importing at least 25000 pounds of reportable chemicals per year in one or more US sites were must report their CDR form through the CDX system to EPA. The current reporting (2020) involves the chemicals substances manufactured or imported during the calendar year of 2016-2019. In the CDR form, companies must report various information like production volume, manufacturing activity, processing & usage information.
