Confidential Business Information under TSCA

TSCA CBI Training - Responsibilities

Protection of TSCA CBI

You have a responsibility to protect the information claimed as TSCA CBI. Any document that contains TSCA CBI which you receive, retain, create or give to another must be protected.

Not surprisingly, EPA tracks all TSCA CBI documents in its possession and you are also required to undergo an annual audit of all TSCA CBI entrusted to you. Even your working papers must be individually tracked when not in your direct possession and otherwise protected until destroyed.

Lastly, you can only discuss or disseminate TSCA CBI with persons you know are TSCA CBI cleared. To verify clearances, please consult the TSCA CBI Authorized Access List!
