TSCA Import-Export Requirements

Chemicals Subject to TSCA Section 12(b) Export Notification Requirements

All of the chemical substances appearing on this list are subject to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) section 12(b) export notification requirements delineated at 40 CFR part 707, subpart D. The list is subject to change periodically. TSCA section 12(b) requires any person who exports or intends to export a chemical substance or mixture to notify the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of such exportation if actions have been taken under TSCA with respect to that chemical substance or mixture. 

Disclaimer: This listing is intended simply as an information resource to facilitate compliance with TSCA section 12(b). While EPA has attempted to be as accurate as possible in compiling this list, exporters subject to the requirements of section 12(b) should be aware that this list may contain unintended errors or omissions, and that the absence of a chemical from this list does not mean that export of the chemical is exempt from section 12(b) reporting requirements. Exporters should be aware that they have an affirmative obligation to review the Federal Register for future publication of actions that may trigger section 12(b) reporting obligations. This list should not be relied upon in lieu of relevant Federal Register documents, orders, or the Code of Federal Regulations, and in the event of a conflict between this list and any Federal Register document, order, or the Code of Federal Regulations, this list will not be considered controlling. Exporters are encouraged to check this list from time to time, as EPA intends to revise it periodically, and will do so without prior public notice. EPA also encourages exporters or others to alert the Agency to any errors or omissions in the list, comments can be sent to

EPA provides a Microsoft Access version and a generic comma-delimited "CSV" text version of the TSCA section 12(b) list for users to download. It is recommended that you access the Microsoft Access version since the CSV version may have truncated names. Another option is to use ChemView to access 12(b) reporting information along with other TSCA information on a chemical(s).
