WASHINGTON (July 24, 2012)—Chemtura Corp. paid a $55,901 penalty for alleged failure to report chemical data under the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act, according to a press release from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The TSCA Chemical Data Reporting Rule requires companies that manufacture or use chemicals to submit periodic reports to the EPA about their chemical production and use. In a May 31 complaint, the EPA alleged that Chemtura's El Dorado, Ariz., facility failed to report two chemicals.
Chemtura corrected the violations and paid the penalty, according to the EPA. The Environmental Appeals Board issued its final order in the case June 25, it said.
