Here is an advance copy of a new multi-walled carbon nanotube significant new use rule being published tomorrow in the federal register. It applies only to the specific carbon nanotubes that were the subject of PMN P-08-199, and binds anyone who intends to manufacture, import, or process the specific chemical substance. It is largely consistent with past SNURs and Consent Orders for other CNTs. For those wondering, "processors" and "processing" is broadly defined under TSCA. It has been used in the past to include repackaging for commercial purposes, using the material in the manufacturing of new mixtures, and/or the production of articles using the substance.
