Final rule: addition of 1-bromopropane; community right-to-know toxic chemical release reporting
 
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is adding 1-bromopropane to the list of toxic chemicals subject to reporting under section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986 and section 6607 of the Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) of 1990. 1-Bromopropane was classified by NTP in the 13th Report on Carcinogens as ‘reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.’ EPA has determined that 1-bromopropane meets the EPCRA section 313(d)(2)(B) criteria because it can reasonably be anticipated to cause cancer in humans.
