PMN Fees

What is the fee for submitting?

The fee for most PMN submissions is $2,500.00. The fee is reduced under certain conditions: (1) if your company qualifies as a small business (sales, including those of subsidiary/parent companies, are less than $40 million/year), the fee is $100.00; (2) if a PMN for an intermediate substance is submitted with a final product PMN, the fee for the intermediate substance is $1,000.00; and (3) if a consolidated PMN, as approved by a prenotice coordinator, is filed for multiple chemicals (no more than six) that are related, the total fee is $2,500, except that for a small business it is $100.00.

When several product PMNs have been consolidated, the Agency will consider consolidation for intermediates used in their syntheses where those intermediates are used at parallel stages in their syntheses.

For information about PMN fees see 40 CFR Section 700, or contact the TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act) Assistance Information Service (tsca-hotline@epa.gov).
