DuPont to pay US$3.3 mln penalty to resolve Toxic Substances Control Act violations

December 23/2010

(Plastemart) --  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that DuPont has agreed to pay a penalty of $3.3 mln to resolve 57 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) violations. DuPont failed to immediately notify EPA of research indicating substantial risk found during testing chemicals for possible use as surface protection, masonry protection, water repellants, sealants and paints.

The Toxic Substances Control Act requires companies to inform EPA when they have research demonstrating that a chemical could pose a substantial risk to human health and the environment.

Full compliance with TSCA reporting requirements allows EPA to understand and limit, when necessary, potential hazards associated with manufacturing, use, and disposal of chemical substances.
