Except as provided at §§711.9 and 711.10, the following persons are subject to the CDR requirements:
Persons must make a reporting determination for each chemical substance that they manufacture (including import) at an individual site. For the 2020 CDR, the last principal reporting year would be 2015. Therefore, reporters for 2020 need to consider production for calendar years 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
If a person both domestically manufactures and imports the same chemical substance, the person must add the domestically manufactured and imported volumes at each site for a calendar year to determine whether the amount of the chemical substance meets or exceeds the threshold during that calendar year. Do not subtract the volume of chemical substance directly exported.
It should be noted that EPA’s previous experience with CDR collections has shown that most respondents affected by this collection activity are from the following North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code categories: NAICS 325, Chemical Manufacturing; and NAICS 324, Petroleum and Coal Product Manufacturing. In addition to those two industries, the potentially regulated community consists of manufacturers of byproducts that are required to report under certain TSCA section 8(a) rules, including CDR. Byproduct manufacturers may be listed under a different primary activity for a site, such as, but not limited to, NAICS codes 22, 322, 327310, 331, and 3344, representing utilities, paper manufacturing, cement manufacturing, primary metal manufacturing, and semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing, respectively.
