SGIA Submits Comments to the EPA on the Importance of Protecting Confidential Business Information

On June 23, 2017, SGIA submitted comments to the EPA on the assignment and application of unique identifiers under the Toxic Substances Control Act. Under TSCA, the Agency is required to assign a unique identifier to all chemicals for which a request for confidentiality is received. The EPA has requested comments on how to proceed with a proposal for this requirement. SGIA submitted comments which supported provided a different unique identifier to each submission for confidentiality, rather than for each chemical. If each chemical received a unique identifier, and there were multiple submissions for a single chemical, it may lead to situations where confidential information is inadvertently made public. SGIA outlines the importance of confidential business information for successful companies in the comments submitted. SGIA continues to monitor TSCA implementation.
