Enviornmental Protection Agency Proposes Rules on Fracking

In its response to a cit­i­zen peti­tion sub­mit­ted under sec­tion 21 of the Toxic Sub­stances Con­trol Act (TSCA), EPA indi­cated that as a first step, it would con­vene a stake­holder process to develop an approach to obtain infor­ma­tion on chem­i­cal sub­stances and mix­tures used in hydraulic frac­tur­ing. To gather infor­ma­tion to inform EPA’s pro­posal, the Agency is issu­ing this advance notice of pro­posed rule­mak­ing (ANPR) and ini­ti­at­ing a pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion process to seek com­ment on the infor­ma­tion that should be reported or dis­closed for hydraulic frac­tur­ing chem­i­cal sub­stances and mix­tures and the mech­a­nism for obtain­ing this information.
