Streamline PFAS Reporting by using automated Safety Data Sheet Analytics provided by SdbHub

SdbHub, a platform that analyzes Safety Data Sheets (SDS), can play a crucial role in supporting manufacturers to streamline and simplify the PFAS reporting process required by the TSCA Section 8(a)(7) Final Rule for PFAS. Here’s how SdbHub can support in making this reporting easier:

What is the TSCA Section 8(a)(7) “Final Rule”?

In November 2023, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the TSCA Section 8(a)(7) Rule List of Chemicals, establishing the reporting and recordkeeping requirements for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). This regulation is of significant importance to manufacturers working with PFAS or PFAS-containing products.

Why was this regulation created?

The EPA introduced this regulation to protect communities from the potential hazards of PFAS. PFAS are persistent and can accumulate in the environment and human body, posing serious health risks. By collecting data on the use, production, disposal, and exposure of PFAS, authorities can make informed decisions and develop appropriate regulations to control the use of these chemicals.

What is to be done?

  1. Mandatory Reporting Obligations: Manufacturers who have manufactured or imported PFAS or PFAS-containing articles since January 1, 2011, are required to electronically report data on the use of PFAS, production quantities, disposal, exposure, and hazards to the EPA. This must be done within 18 months, with small manufacturers possibly having up to 24 months, depending on their reporting obligations.
  2. Review Your Products: Carefully review your production processes and products to ensure that you can identify all PFAS-containing materials. Ensure compliance with reporting requirements according to the TSCA Final Rule.
  3. Prepare for Potential Impacts: This regulation could impact your business, especially if your products contain PFAS. Be prepared to adapt to new regulations and provisions that may be enacted based on the data collected by the EPA or other government agencies.

Streamline and simplify the PFAS reporting process with SdbHub

SdbHub seamlessly integrates with manufacturers’ Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and automatically extracts pertinent information crucial for reporting purposes. Through streamlined and structured data extraction, SdbHub retrieves essential data from specific sections, such as Section 3, encompassing substance names, CAS numbers, and corresponding quantities. For example, “Perfluoroheptanoic acid CAS No. 375-85-9” is effortlessly extracted. This extraction feature is readily available, requiring no onboarding time, and ensures comprehensive coverage across all manufacturers and SDS templates.


By leveraging the capabilities of SdbHub, manufacturers can effectively navigate the complex reporting requirements for PFAS under the TSCA Section 8(a)(7) Final Rule. This not only ensures compliance with regulatory obligations but also enhances transparency, efficiency, and safety in handling PFAS-containing materials.
