Abstract The Toxic Substances Control Act authorizes the Environmental Protection Agency to require testing and/or use restrictions on certain chemical substances. As a first step in implementing the Act, EPA is required to compile a list (inventory) of chemicals manufactured, imported or processed in the United States. Manufacturers or importers will be required to submit a premanufacturing notice to the EPA 90 days prior to manufacture or importation of any chemical substance not on the list. The Act provides authority to EPA to collect information for administration of the Act, but also directs the Agency to exempt small businesses from certain reporting requirements. This report analyzes the options for a one-time definition of small business for the EPA's initial Section 8(a) reporting requirements and also provides an estimate of the initial reporting cost. As background, the report also includes a characterization of the chemical industry in terms of sales, employment, number of firms and other parameters. Options for the small business definition were selected on the basis of ease of use and relationship to a firm's ability to bear the burden of the reporting requirements. The initial reporting cost estimate was prepared by working up from a cost per chemical estimate to an aggregated total for the industry.
