Global Automakers and the Alliance submitted joint comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on its proposed SNUR for 15 related chemical substances commonly known as nonylphenols (NPs) and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs).
In the comment, the Associations listed the industry's ongoing uses of the chemicals, based on a blinded industry study, to supplement EPA's research and create a more complete database. The Associations believe this will better inform the rulemaking process. Eleven ongoing uses were listed, with names, CAS numbers, and applications. The full text of the comment is attached.
The comments were submitted on January 15, 2015.
