U.S. EPA Extends PIP (3:1) Compliance Deadline

By: SiliconExpert on March 9th, 2022

March 9, 2022 – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) extended the compliance dates for PIP (3:1) to October 31, 2024. The EPA initially planned to have a full understanding of the impact of the prohibition prior to issuing the January 2021 final rule, however, that was not the case. As a result, the EPA has conducted extensions of the compliance date multiple times and on October 28, 2021, the EPA suggested the final extension of the deadline to October 31, 2024 which was officially enacted this month. 

The final compliance dates related to articles containing phenol, isopropylated phosphate (3:1) (PIP (3:1)) have been made to ensure supply chains for key consumer and commercial goods are not disrupted. This action was based on the information collected during the course of a 60-day public comment period following the EPA’s October 2021 proposal.
