The 2020 Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) submission period begins on June 1, 2020 and runs through November 30, 2020. The CDR rule requires manufacturers (including importers) of certain chemical substances listed on the TSCA Inventory to report data on chemical manufacturing, processing, and use every four years.
