SARA Title III and RCRA Reporting


SARA Title III

SARA Title III requirements apply to the owner or operator of any facility that is required to prepare or have available a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) Section 311 (SARA Title III) for a hazardous chemical as defined under the OSHA Hazardous Communication Standard, 29CFR 1910.1200. US EPA has established a threshold of 10,000 lbs for Hazardous substances present at a facility at any given time during a calendar year, as the threshold requiring filing of Tier II information.

US EPA has also established very conservative reporting thresholds for Extremely Hazardous substances; if the substance is present at the facility in an amount at or above 500 lbs or the “threshold planning quantity (TPQ)” whichever is less, set by EPA for filing Tier II information.

RCRA Requirements and Reporting

RCRA is the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which was enacted by Congress in 1976. RCRA's primary goals are to protect human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste disposal, to conserve energy and natural resources, to reduce the amount of waste generated, and to ensure that wastes are managed in an environmentally sound manner. RCRA regulates the management of solid waste (e.g., garbage), hazardous waste, and underground storage tanks holding petroleum products or certain chemicals.

Wastes that exhibit certain characteristics may be regulated by RCRA. A waste may be considered hazardous if it is ignitable (i.e., burns readily), corrosive, or reactive (e.g., explosive). A waste may also be considered hazardous if it contains certain amounts of toxic chemicals. In addition to these characteristic wastes, EPA has also developed a list of over 500 specific hazardous wastes. Hazardous waste takes many physical forms and may be solid, semi-solid, or even liquid.
