This rule is likely to address an adverse impact on childhood lifestages, including prenatal (via exposure to women of childbearing age). The potential adverse impacts are expected to be due to toxicity (i.e., the developing fetus, infants, and/or children are more likely to have an adverse response than adult lifestages).
This rulemaking involves a topic that is likely to be of particular interest to or have particular impact upon minority, low-income, tribal, and/or other vulnerable populations because:
- This topic is likely to impact the health of vulnerable populations.
- This topic is likely to impact the environmental conditions of vulnerable populations.
- This topic is likely to present an opportunity to address an existing disproportionate impact on vulnerable populations.
EPA notifies the public when a rulemaking is likely to 1) have any adverse economic impact on small entities even though a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis may not be required and/or 2) have significant adverse economic impacts on a substantial number of small entities. The term "small entities" includes small businesses, small governments, and small not-for-profits. (Read a longer explanation on our Small Entities web page.) This rulemaking is likely to impact small entities in the following way(s):
- Likely to have any adverse economic impact on:
- small businesses
- Likely to have a significant adverse economic impact on a substantial number of these small entities:
- small businesses
This action may place unfunded mandates on the private sector and is subject to Section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
Some of EPA's rulemakings undergo regulatory review (What's this?), as prescribed by Executive Order 12866 and coordinated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The following list describes which of this rulemaking's stages have completed review and published in the Federal Register, if any, and provides links to the review documents where available. Consult the "Timeline" section of this Web page for the dates of each review.
- NPRM - No Information Available.
- Final Rule - This stage of the rulemaking underwent review.
This site provides summaries of priority rulemakings and priority retrospective reviews of existing regulations. We update most of the site at the beginning of each month, though some data is updated more frequently if it is time sensitive. The information on this site is not intended to and does not commit EPA to specific conclusions or actions. For example, after further analysis, EPA may decide the effects of a rule would be different or it may decide to terminate a rulemaking.
