The ATF list that used to be at 27 CFR 55.23 was moved to 27 CFR 555.23, then ended up in ATF Publication 5400.8

The most current List of Explosive Materials (2011R=9618T) was published in the Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 202 / Wednesday, October 19, 2011 pg 64974


The Laboratory Exemption for Explosive Materials is found at 27 CFR 555.141 (9)


(a) General. Except for the provisions of =A7=A7555.180 and 555.181, this part does not apply to:

Industrial and laboratory chemicals which are intended for use as reagents and which are packaged and shipped pursuant to U.S. Department of Transportation regulations, 49 CFR Parts 100 to 177, which do not require explosives hazard warning labels.


Hope this helps.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Chemical Inventory Regulations

Afternoon all =96 I am just double checking to make sure I am not missing some obscure regulation out there.  I am working on a chemical inventory project and we are trying to build a comprehensive screening list to make sure that all of the appropriate regulations are checked off when a new chemical may be presented.  I have gotten the List of Lists (which convers EPCRA, SARA, RCRA, Clean Air Act) and the CFATS (Anti-Terrorism List) =96 there used to be an ATF (alcohol, tobacco and firearms) list, but I think it has been rolled into the CFATS list.  I know there are exemptions and potential other requirements =96 if it is a drug precursor (DEA), a bioagent, covered under FIFRA (insecticide, biocide, and/or rodenticide), or a material covered under the NRC. 


TSCA is also out there as well and that will relate to use. 


Is there anything that I am missing????
