The Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Rule requires manufacturers (including importers) to report information on the chemical substances they produce domestically or import into the United States during the principal reporting year. For the 2012 submission period, reporters provided 2011 manufacturing, processing, and use data and 2010 production volume data for their reportable chemical substances.

On June 11, 2014, EPA updated its publicly available non-confidential 2012 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) database and three fact sheets on the 2012 CDR data.

The submission period for the 2016 CDR will be from June 1, 2016, to September 30, 2016. Learn more about the new reporting requirements.

Changes that were published in the final 2011 CDR rule are being phased in for the first time. Learn more.

EPA is proposing to eliminate reporting of CDR processing and use information for six chemical substances because this information is currently of low interest to the Agency. The Agency will take comment on the proposal until September 21, 2015. Learn more.

June 11, 2014--The updated non-confidential 2012 CDR database includes amendments to previously submitted information as well as information submitted by new companies which had not reported prior to the earlier database release in April 2013. The 2012 CDR data reflect manufacturing, processing and use information for calendar year 2011 from manufacturers (including importers) of certain chemicals on the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory. You can use these data to find out what chemicals are being produced and used at industrial sites in the United States.
