I’m not sure if this is covered in the List of Lists, but EPA has 2 lists of ozone-depleting substances that have specific labeling requirements in their Stratospheric Protection Act.


Also, DEA has 4 schedules of controlled substances.


29 CFR Subpart H covers a lot of chemical operations, including dipping/coating operations, 13 carcinogens, and more.


ATF publishes the List of Explosive Materials (Notice 47N found at that have regulations of their own.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Chemical Inventory Regulations


Afternoon all – 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) – 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 – 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????
