Confidential Business Information under TSCA

TSCA CBI Training - Document Management

Use and Handling of TSCA CBI

The appropriate use and handling of TSCA CBI is essential if we are to carry out OPPT's mission. Here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • Employee responsibilities: Ensure that no unauthorized disclosure of CBI occurs.
  • Obtaining TSCA CBI: Except for working papers, you should obtain CBI documents from your DCO.
  • Use or discussion of TSCA CBI in meetings: Working papers or logged out CBI can be used if the person who authored the document (i.e., "author employee") attends the meeting and is present when the document is discussed. Remember to clean all chalkboards and remove all CBI after the meeting is done
