(1) The chemical substance identified generically as alkanedioic acid, polymers with alkanoic acid-dipentaerythritol reaction products, substituted alkanedioc acid, substituted alkanoic acid, isocyanato-(isocyanatoalkyl)-alkyl substituted carbomonocycle and alkyl substituted alkanediol (PMN P–18–40) is subject to reporting under this section for the significant new uses described in paragraph (a)(2) of this section. The requirements of this section do not apply to quantities of the substance after they have been reacted (cured).

(2) The significant new uses are:

(iii) Industrial, commercial, and consumer activities. Requirements as specified in § 721.80(f). It is a significant new use to import the substance if the number average molecular weight is less than or equal to 1000 Daltons or greater than 20% of the acid moiety. It is a significant new use to use the substance other than as a binder for ultraviolet curable coating resins.

(b) Specific requirements. The provisions of subpart A of this part apply to this section except as modified by this paragraph (b).

(1) Recordkeeping. Recordkeeping requirements as specified in § 721.125(a) through (i) are applicable to manufacturers and processors of this substance.
