Comment Periods Extended for Two Proposed Rules: Trichloroethylene (TCE) in Vapor Degreasing and Methylene Chloride and N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP) in Paint and Coating Removal

The public comment periods for two proposed rules, one on trichloroethylene (TCE) in vapor degreasing and one on methylene chloride and N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) in paint and coating removal, will be extended in response to stakeholder requests for more time to comment on the proposals. Comments must be received through regulations.gov in dockets EPA-HQ-OPPT-2016-0387 or EPA-HQ-OPPT-2016-0231 on or before May 19, 2017.

EPA proposed these two rules in January 2017, under section 6 of the Toxic Substances Control Act, as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act.
