NACAA Comments on Proposed Asbestos Significant New Use Rule

August 29, 2018 - NACAA has commented on EPA’s proposed “Asbestos; Significant New Use Rule (SNUR),” which was published in the Federal Register on June 11, 2018. NACAA’s comments express concern that the proposed SNUR for asbestos under the Toxic Substances Control Act could result in asbestos-containing products being manufactured, processed and imported for new uses.  Such an outcome could elevate the levels of asbestos in the environment and increase health risks to the public from exposure to this dangerous substance.
