CIS 91-363
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
EPA Final Rule - Oleylamine; Final test standards and reporting requirements [USA]
This final test rule is issued under the Toxic Substances Control Act (see CIS 89-23) specifying the test standards and reporting requirements to be used by manufacturers and processors of oleylamine (synonym: 9-octadecenylamine or ODA). Extensive commentary.

CIS 90-17
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
EPA Final Rule - Preliminary assessment information and health and safety data reporting: Addition of chemicals [USA]
EPA is adding 6 chemical substances to 2 model information-gathering rules contained in the Toxic Substances Control Act (see CIS 89-23): the Preliminary Assessment Information Rule (PAIR) and the Health and Safety Data Reporting Rule. Manufacturers, processors and importers of these chemicals will be required to report end-use, exposure, volume and unpublished health and safety data to the EPA. The substances are: 2-butenal (or: crotonaldehyde); tris(2-chloroethyl)phosphate; tris(2-chloro-1-propyl)phosphate; tris(1-chloro-2-propyl)phosphate; tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl)phosphate; tetrakis(2-chloroethyl)ethylene disphosphate. The first of these is designated for response within 12 months, while the others are recommended with intent-to-designate. A 7th substance, butanal, is also recommended without being designated for response within 12 months. Also discussed: the Preliminary Assessment Information Rule (PAIR); the Health and Safety Data Reporting Rule; economic analysis of the 2 rules.
Federal Register, 16 Nov. 1988, Vol.53, No.221, p.46279-46282.

CIS 89-1419
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
EPA Final Rule - Chemical Information Rules; Addition of Chemicals [USA]
EPA is adding 18 chemical substances to the list of substances identified in the Preliminary Assessment Information Rule (PAIR). Manufacturers and importers of these substances must submit production volumes, end uses and exposure data to the EPA. The Agency will use the tabulated data to evaluate risks associated with these substances. The substances are: barium chloride, bromine, 4-vinylcyclohexene, ferro-manganese, hydrocyanic acid, hydrofluoric acid, manganese oxide, molybdenum oxide, silver nitrate, palladium (II) chloride, phosphorus, selenium, silver, sodium fluoride, cobaltous sulfate, manganese (II) sulfate, tungsten carbide, vanadium oxide. Also included: rationale and objectives of the Rule; commentary on Rule; economic analysis.

1987

CIS 88-718
Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Occupational exposure to benzene [USA]
The 1978 US standard on occupational exposure to benzene (see CIS 78-1937) was vacated (voided) by the US Supreme Court in 1980, which meant that the old (1971) OSHA standard of 10ppm remained in effect. After further risk assessment, OSHA issued this reduced standard, reducing the permissible exposure limit from 10ppm to an 8h TWA of 1ppm and a short-term exposure limit of 5ppm. The effective date of the standard is 10 Dec. 1987. The risk assessment that led to the standard, including both epidemiologic studies and animal experiments and the reasons for the adoption of this standard, are discussed in detail. Also included: technological, economic and environmental aspects of the new standard, exposure monitoring, respiratory protection, protective clothing, medical surveillance, communication of benzene hazards to employees, recordkeeping, a substance safety data sheet on benzene.
Federal Register, 11 Sep. 1987, Vol.52, No.176, p.34460-34578. Also available separately from: OSHA Office of Publications, US Department of Labor, Room N-3101, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20210, USA.

CIS 91-364
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
EPA Final Rule - Preliminary assessment information and health and safety data reporting; Addition of chemicals [USA]
EPA is adding 4 chemical substances to 2 model information-gathering rules contained in the Toxic Substances Control Act (see CIS 89-23): the Preliminary Assessment Information Rule (PAIR) and the Health and Safety Data Reporting Rule. Manufacturers, processors and importers of these chemicals will be required to report end-use, exposure, volume and unpublished health and safety data to the EPA. The substances are: 2-butanone oxime; 2-propanol; 2-methoxy-2-methyl-propane; N- [5-[bis[2-(acetyloxy)ethyl]-amino]-2-[(bromo-4,6-dinitrophenyl)azo]-4-etho xyphenyl]-acetamide (Disperse Blue 79). In addition, a 5th substance (phosphoric acid, tributyl ester) was added to PAIR and is now designated for response within 12 months. Details of the 2 Rules and an economic analysis of their impact follow.
