Buyer acknowledges that he is familiar with the provisions of the Toxic Substances Control Act exemption for research and development found in 40 CFR 720.36.

Buyer agrees to notify Matrix Scientific in writing if his use of Matrix Scientific’s products is for manufacturing as defined in the Toxic Substances Control Act. Buyer further agrees not to use Matrix Scientific’s products in manufacturing unless and until buyer and Matrix Scientific have ascertained that the product is listed in the TSCA Inventory List or that a premanufacturing notification has been filed and approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Products, which are currently on the EPA inventory, have been marked with (TSCA) under their catalog number in the alphabetical listing of chemicals. Please note that Matrix Scientific does NOT insure or guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the TSCA status and assumes NO responsibility with respect thereto.
