EPA classifies chemical substances as either "existing" chemicals or "new" chemicals. The only way to determine if the substance you are working with is a new chemical is by consulting EPA's Toxic Substances Control Act Chemical Substance Inventory (commonly referred to as the TSCA Inventory or just the Inventory). Any substance that is not on the Inventory is classified as a new chemical. If a substance is "new", it can be manufactured for a commercial purpose only if it is subject to an exemption from PMN reporting or a TSCA reporting exclusion (for example, a Low Volume Exemption, or exclusion as a naturally-occurring material). For substances which are "existing", the Inventory can be used to determine if there are restrictions on manufacture or use under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).There are approximately 75,000 chemical substances, as defined in Section 3 of the TSCA, on the Inventory at this time.

You will have to find out what the varnish is made of - a list of ingredients. Or look at the MSDS - the regulatory status (including inclusion in the TSCA inventory) is sometimes listed on the MSDS.

This is an update to information provided above by Ajit Basrur on January 12, 2008:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recently changed the web page on which links to the TSCA Chemical Inventory may be found. The current page is found at http://epa.gov/opptintr/existingchemicals/pubs/tscainventory/index.html

Hello,
You seem to be very well educated on the subject of TSCA. Our company is a contract manufacturer of cables and wire harness assemblies. We have created a EPA PIP 3:1 Company Policy that states we only add Kester Solder and AIM Solder, and an examination of the substances utilized in our manufacturing processes, has determined that 'none of the chemicals listed in the EPA PIP-3 (Phenol, lsopropylated Phosphate) regulation under TSCA Section 6(h) are present in the articles we supply to your company or in the packaging in their product', so we do not control or are responsible for their product TSCA compliance. Is this correct? Please help and provide guidance on this if possible.
Thank You
