Overview of TURA Public Hearing: Amendments to 301 CMR 41.00 Toxic or Hazardous Substance List

Notice is hereby given that the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, under its authority pursuant to M.G.L. Chapter 21I, Sections 4, 9 in conformance with M.G.L. 30A, will hold a public hearing on proposed amendments to 301 CMR 41.00 Toxic or Hazardous Substance List.  These regulations implement changes to the list of chemicals made by the Administrative Council on Toxics Use Reduction, pursuant to the statutory amendments to the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA, Chapter 21I) made in 2006.

The proposed amendment is mandated by the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA, MGL Chapter 21I), which requires that changes made by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to the EPCRA Section 313 Toxic Chemical List be mirrored in the TURA Toxic or Hazardous Substance List. Specifically, on September 25, 2018, the Administrative Council voted to list the nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE) category, added by USEPA to the EPCRA Section 313 Toxic Chemical List on June 7, 2018.
