We conduct some CDRs outside the centralized process based on events such as voluntary or third-party reports of medical improvement. In addition, there is a subset of cases where the medical review diary matures but we curtail further development for technical reasons, such as the suspension or termination Seclusion - Radial - Pass Away (CDr) benefits for non-medical reasons.
We refer to these cases as "administrative closures". Initial Field Office FTC failure to cooperate Terminations : The number of beneficiaries who had their eligibility for disability benefits terminated for non-compliance with the field office request for necessary information. Initial Cessations FMRs : The number of cases in which there was an initial determination that benefits should cease. This data does not include any changes in cessation decisions resulting from appeals.
The Commissioner of Social Security may make determinations to waive the requirement that we review the continuing eligibility of disability beneficiaries with non-permanent disabilities at least once every 3 years.
We consider the cases for which we do not conduct a timely 3 year periodic CDR as backlogged until we are able to initiate the CDR for those cases. SSA ended FY with no backlog. As discussed in that section, we are soliciting any additional feedback on assumptions made regarding the time burden of this collection and the theoretical opportunity cost to beneficiaries.
The costs are driven largely by a projected net increase of roughly 2. We will not be changing these ICRs in any way to support these proposed rules. However, because the core policy of these proposed rules will cause a change in the frequency of use of these forms, increasing their public reporting burden for the first 10 years after implementation of the final rules, we are seeking OMB re-approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act for these ICRs.
While the public is able to comment on any aspects of these ICRs, since we are only changing their frequency of use, not their content, comments speaking to the former issue would be most useful. Below are charts showing current burden estimates time and associated opportunity costs for both ICRs, as well as the total expected increase the difference between the current and new estimates resulting from implementation of the final rules.
Start Printed Page We are soliciting comments on the burden estimate; the need for the information; its practical utility; ways to enhance its quality, utility, and clarity; and ways to minimize the burden on respondents, including the use of automated techniques or other forms of information technology.

We conduct continuing disability reviews to determine whether or not you continue to meet the disability requirements of the law.
Payment of cash benefits or a period of disability ends if the medical or other evidence shows that you are not disabled as determined under the standards set out in section f of the Social Security Act.
In paragraphs b through f of this section, we explain when and how often we conduct continuing disability reviews for most people.
In paragraph g of this section, we explain special rules for some people who are participating in the Ticket to Work program. In paragraph h of this section, we explain special rules for some people who work. Except as provided in paragraphs g and h of this section, we will start a continuing disability review if—. Medical improvement expected MIE diary refers to a diary set for a case, which we schedule for review because your impairment s is expected to improve.
Generally, the MIE diary period is set for not less than 6 months or for not more than 18 months. We publish and maintain a list of impairments that we expect to improve in our employee operating instructions, which are publicly accessible.
Medical improvement likely MIL diary refers to a diary set for a case, which we schedule for review because your impairment s is likely to improve. Generally, the MIL diary period is set for 2 years.
We publish and maintain a list of impairments that we Seclusion - Radial - Pass Away (CDr) likely to improve in our employee operating instructions, which are publicly accessible. Medical improvement possible MIP diary refers to a diary set for a case, which we schedule for review because your nonpermanent impairment s will possibly improve but we cannot determine with certainty that it is likely to improve. Generally, the MIP diary period is set for 3 years. We will assign this diary if your impairment s is nonpermanent and is not on the lists of impairments that we publish and maintain for MIE and MIL diaries.
Medical improvement not expected MINE diary refers to a diary set for a case, which we schedule for review when we consider your impairment s permanent and for which we do not expect medical improvement in your impairment s. We may consider the interaction of your age, consequences of your impairment sand lack of recent attachment to the labor market in determining whether to set a MINE diary. Generally, the MINE diary period is set for 6 years.
Nonpermanent impairment means an impairment that we do not consider Start Printed Page permanent and for which improvement is expected, likely, or possible, but cannot be predicted based on current experience and the facts of the particular case. Permanent impairment means an impairment for which we do not expect medical improvement. A permanent impairment is an extremely severe condition determined on the basis of our experience in administering the disability programs to be at least static, but more likely to be progressively disabling, either by itself or by reason of impairment complications, and unlikely to improve so as to permit you to engage in substantial gainful activity.
We assign cases with permanent impairments to the MINE diary category. Vocational reexamination diary refers to a case, which is scheduled for review at a later date because you are undergoing vocational therapy, training or an educational program which may improve your ability to work so that the disability or blindness requirement of the law is no longer met. Generally, the diary period will be set for the length of the training, therapy, or program of education.
If you were found eligible to receive or to continue to receive, disability benefit payments on the basis of a decision by an administrative law judge, the Appeals Council or a Federal court, we will not conduct a continuing disability review earlier than 3 years after that decision unless—. We will review all cases with a nonpermanent impairment at least once every 3 years unless we, after consultation with the State agency, determine that the requirement should be waived to ensure that only the appropriate number of cases are reviewed.
We will base the appropriate number of cases we will review on such considerations as the number of pending reviews, the projected number of new applications, and projected staffing levels. We will grant such waiver only after good faith effort on the part of the State to meet staffing requirements and to process the reviews on a timely basis.
We may also consider availability of independent medical resources. A waiver in this context refers to our administrative discretion to determine the appropriate number of cases to be reviewed on a State-by-State basis. Therefore, under certain circumstances, we may delay your continuing disability review longer than 3 years following our original determination or decision or other review.
We would base the delay on our need to ensure that pending reviews and new disability claims workloads are accomplished within available medical and other resources in the State agency and that such reviews are done carefully and accurately.
Notwithstanding the provisions in paragraphs b 3b 4b 5 iib 6 iiand b 7 iii of this section, we will not start a continuing disability review based solely on your work activity if:.

Medical improvement possible MIP diary refers to a diary set for a case, which we schedule for review because your impairment s will possibly improve but we cannot determine with certainty that it is likely to improve. We publish and maintain a list of impairments that we consider permanent in our employee operating instructions, which are publicly accessible.
Nonpermanent impairment means an impairment that we do not consider permanent and for which improvement is expected, likely, or possible, but cannot be predicted based on current experience and the facts of the particular case. A permanent impairment is an extremely severe condition determined on the basis of our experience in administering the disability programs to be at least static, but more likely to be progressively disabling either by itself Seclusion - Radial - Pass Away (CDr) by reason of impairment complications, and unlikely to improve so as to permit you to engage in substantial gainful activity, or if you are a child, unlikely to improve to the point that you will no longer have marked and severe limitations.
Vocational reexamination diary refers to a case, which is scheduled for review at a later date because the individual is undergoing vocational therapy, training or an educational program which may improve his or her ability to work so that the disability or blindness requirement of the law is no longer met.
Therefore, under certain circumstances, we may delay your continuing disability review longer than 3-years following our original determination or decision or other review. We would base the delay on our need to ensure that pending reviews and new disability claims workloads are Start Printed Page accomplished within available medical and other resources in the State agency and that such reviews are done carefully and accurately.
We pay three benefits based on disability under title II: disability insurance benefits DIBdisabled widow er benefits, and childhood disability benefits. Public Lawsec. A failure to periodically review eligibility in these cases could seriously undermine the intent of the legislation. We may also establish a diary before 3 years if the person should be scheduled for a vocational reexamination diary or if a question of continuing disability arises under 20 CFR In most instances, we will identify the CDR issue at the field office level.
If there is any question about the appropriateness of initiating a CDR, the field office will request assistance from SSA's regional or central office staff or the state disability determination services before taking any action. A cessation is a determination or decision that the disabled individual no longer meets the definition of disability and is not eligible to continue to receive benefits or payments see 20 CFR SSA at: www.
Ward, B. See Moore, T. Available at regulations. Hemmeter, J. Deshpande, M. Institute of Medicine This figure includesCDRs for low birth weight infants. Age 18 redeterminations are considered a part of the CDR workload for planning and budget purposes. However, the assigned diary category does not affect the selection for review. Furthermore, all age 18 redeterminations receive a FMR.
The total mailer deferral reviews does not equal the sum of components due to rounding. These characteristics were used in the underlying assumptions to estimate changes in the programmatic and administrative cost for this proposed rule.

Note, though, that if the baghouse dust were to include other components, such as partially reacted intermediates or other substances from a chemical reaction, the baghouse dust may be a byproduct that you are manufacturing. If you use baghouse dust byproduct for a non-exempt commercial purpose after manufacturing it, you would need to evaluate your CDR requirements as a manufacturer of the baghouse dust.
Chemical X could be described as an impurity because it is unintentionally present with Chemical Y, but it would be more accurate to describe it as a byproduct because it is manufactured without a separate commercial purpose. However, if a manufactured chemical substance that remained with the primary product did have a separate commercial purpose — for instance, if it improved the performance of the primary product or provided a primary property to the commercial product — it would be a coproduct, not an impurity or a byproduct, and its manufacture would be reportable for CDR purposes.
This changed with the addition of 40 CFR The specifically listed substances for the Kraft pulping process are:. If the listed kraft pulping process byproduct substances are recycled or otherwise used within a site-limited, physically enclosed system that is part of the same overall manufacturing process from which the byproduct substance was produced, and the site is reporting the byproduct or a different chemical substance that was manufactured from the recycled byproduct or manufactured in the same overall manufacturing process, that byproduct is not required to be reported 40 CFR In addition, 40 CFR While the black liquor is burned, the volume is burned both for its fuel value and for its value as a feedstock to the production of smelt.
The example indicates that the manufactured smelt is then put to non-exempt commercial purposes to make white liquor, a pulping chemical. Also, based on the information provided, EPA assumes that the following reactions occur within the ion exchange system:. The metal salt is subsequently chemically reduced to form elemental metal G. From this set of reactions, EPA has determined assuming that all pertinent production volumes thresholds are exceeded that CDR reporting requirements apply to the company as follows:.
The manufacture of the liquid process stream does not receive the reporting exemption at 40 CFR Metal-Resin Complex: Reporting requirements for the metal-resin complex should be evaluated by each manufacturer. This salt is manufactured for a non-exempt commercial purpose and is subject to CDR reporting requirements.
Metal G: The recovery of Metal G from the metal salt requires a chemical reduction process. Those substances include: any pesticide as defined by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, when manufactured, processed, or distributed in commerce for use as a pesticide; any food, food additive, drug, cosmetic, or device, as defined by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, when manufactured, processed, or distributed in commerce for use as a food, food additive, drug, cosmetic or device; tobacco or any tobacco product; any source material, special nuclear material, or byproduct material as such terms are defined in the Atomic Energy Act of ; and, any article the sale of which is subject to the tax imposed by Section of the Internal Revenue Code.
Where persons manufacture chemical substances for a variety of uses, the CDR rule does not require the reporting of processing and use information on the non-TSCA uses of the TSCA chemical substances they manufacture. Therefore, a person manufacturing a chemical substance which is an active ingredient in a pesticide formulation should report the amount of the chemical substance manufactured but need not report processing Seclusion - Radial - Pass Away (CDr) use information for activities occurring after it is incorporated into the pesticide formulation.
Naturally occurring substances, including naturally occurring water, are exempt from CDR requirements. Polymers, microorganisms, water, and certain forms of natural gas are generally exempt from CDR requirements.
These general exemptions are further defined at 40 CFR Note that a particular polymer, microorganism, manufactured water, or certain form of natural gas is no longer covered under this exemption if the chemical substance becomes the subject of any of certain TSCA actions a final or proposed rule under TSCA Section 4, 5 a 25 b 4or 6; a consent agreement developed under the procedures of 40 CFR Part ; an order issued under TSCA Sections 4, 5 eor 5 f ; or relief under TSCA Section 5 or 7.
The regulatory text states:. Note that this definition differs from the definition of polymer used in the Polymer Exemption at 40 CFR Substances that are not considered to be polymers result from hydrolysis, depolymerization, or chemical modification of polymers, regardless of the extent of these processes, so that as long as the final products are no longer polymeric at all e. The plastic cartridges are a combination of polymers, and polymers are generally exempt from reporting under the CDR.
The actions listed in this question do not appear to depolymerize the material or otherwise manufacture a chemical substance. Therefore, there is no reporting required for the recycling of the plastic cartridges. Note that any chemical substance produced from a living microorganism is reportable unless otherwise excluded 40 CFR Skip to main content.
Chemical Data Reporting. Contact Us. For what chemical substances must CDR information be submitted? Step II: Are you a manufacturer including importer who is required to report? Step III: What information must you report? What should a company do if it determines that it manufactures a chemical substance that is not included on the TSCA Inventory?
What should a company do if it determines that it manufactures a chemical substance that has the commercial activity status "inactive" on the TSCA Inventory? Mixtures 9. Are mixtures ever reportable? How are catalysts reported under CDR? When metal catalysts supported on fixed, inert substrates are regenerated, t he catalyst is subjected to high tempertures which convert Seclusion - Radial - Pass Away (CDr) mental to its oxide.
This is followed by a reduction step which converts the metal oxide back to the base metal. Is this activity subject to CDR requirements? How does a company report the importation of a solid solution? Is earch compound a reportable chemical substance or are they mixtures of magnesium? Should the amount of magnesium in each substance be aggregated and reported as the total amount of magnesium?
If a company purchases chemical substances from manufactures then mixes it for their own use, do they need to report on the mixture? Must hydrates of chemical substances be reported under the CDR rule? Byproducts What is a byproduct? How is a byproduct chemical substance characterized for identification purposes? Byproducts are formed by a reaction, and generally, EPA considers Seclusion - Radial - Pass Away (CDr) combination of substances resulting from a reaction to be either: A mixture, composed of two or more fully identified chemical substances to be named and listed separately, or A reaction product, or combination of chemicals from a reaction, to be listed as a single chemical substance, using one name that collectively describes the products or, if that is not feasible, describes the reactants used to make the products.
How do you characterize a byproduct that is a complex combination of chemical substances? When is a byproduct reportable for CDR purposes? Does the term reportable byproduct in the CDR pertain to a substance with commercial value only? How does the byproduct exemption at 40 CFR Byproducts whose only commercial purposes is a source from w hich component chemical substances are extracted are not subject to reporting for CDR, because they are exempt under 40 CFR What is meant by "extract a component chemical substance"?
A chemical reaction of Ni OH 2 is required to produce Ni0. Therefore, an extraction of a component chemical substance has NOT occurred. Rather, the byproduct has been used as a chemical feedstock to manufacture Ni0, and both the byproduct and Ni0 are therefore subject to CDR.
In this case, an extraction of a component chemical substance has occurred. Assuming the byproduct was not put to any other commercial purpose, the manufacture of the byproduct is exempt from reporting under CDR. How do exemptions at 40 CFR Regarding 40 CFR When considering how to characterize a separate byproduct stream, it is not proper to consider as an impurity a component of the byproduct stream that was created as part of the process that created the intended product and byproduct stream.
It may be proper, however, to consider as an impurity a substance that was introduced as an impurity as part of one of the raw materials used as an input to the process. If such an impurity reacts during the process, however, the result is a manufactured substance that does not meet the impurity definition when separated from the intended product into a byproduct stream.
Refer to the Fact Sheet: Non-isolated Intermediates for more information. How do the exemptions at 40 CFR There are conditions under which byproducts are not required to be reported 40 CFR If a byproduct substance listed in 40 CFR If a byproduct substance is manufactured solely in specifically listed equipment when it is not integral to the chemical manufacturing processes of the site, that byproduct is not required to be reported 40 CFR The specifically listed equipment are: Pollution control equipment, and Boilers used to generate heat or electricity for that site.
Is a reaction product formed upon end use of a catalyst always exempt under 40 CFR It is unclear to me whether I am burning my byproduct for energy recovery of destruction.
Is this an issue I need to resolve in order to determine whether I have a reporting obligation under CDR? How could a byproduct be manufactured in the course of manufacturing an article? What is the difference between manufacturing a byproduct and manufacturing a coproduct?
How does a submitter report under the data element "Is chemical substance being recycled? EPA has a lot of programs encouraging recycling.
How do I determine if I am manufacturing or purifying a chemical substance? Please provide an example of when a substance is purified. Please provide examples of when a substance is extracted and not purified. Spent Solvent A is characterized as a mixture of individual chemical substances: In this case, separating Solvent A from the mixture is not considered manufacturing, and the manufacturer does not report for CDR purposes the reclaimed Solvent A.
Note that, depending upon what is done with the remaining portion of the mixture, any components of the mixture that were manufactured may need to be individually reported. At a site, an ore e.
