TSCA CBI Training - Access


This section of the course will cover issues concerning TSCA CBI access as well as requirements to obtain, maintain, or terminate certification to work with TSCA CBI.

Federal employees can receive access depending upon a job-related need. Contractors to EPA obtain access depending upon employment with a TSCA-related federal contractor, and maintaining up to-date administrative certification.

Federal and contractor employees who have an official job-related need for TSCA CBI access are required to complete an initial administrative certification when receiving their new job assignment, prior to working with TSCA CBI.

If you have received your initial certification to use CBI, you must complete an annual re-certification process each year to maintain access.
