Chemicals Added to the Toxics Release Inventory Pursuant to Section 7321 of the National Defense Authorization Act

Section 7321 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (P.L. 116-92) (NDAA) added certain Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) to the TRI list of reportable chemicals. Among these added chemicals are chemicals that met two criteria: (1) they were subject to a significant new use rule at either 40 CFR 721.9582 or 721.10536 on or before December 20, 2019; and (2) they were identified as active in commerce on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory that was published in February 2019. See the list TRI reporting non-cbi_pfas_list_1_16_2020-6. The listed contaminants are subject to regulation, and may eventually be considered for EPA drinking water standards in the future, if not already listed.
