Confidential Business Information under TSCA

TSCA CBI Training - Responsibilities

Determination of and Receipt of Possible TSCA CBI

It is also your responsibility to decide if an existing document submitted to the Agency, or a document newly created by you, contains TSCA CBI. If you can't determine if a document is TSCA CBI, you should consult with your supervisor or DCO. If the issue remains unresolved, you can then consult the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT), Information Management Division (IMD), Records and Dockets Management Branch (RDMB) Chief, or equivalent.

If you receive materials (labeled or unlabeled), by mail or other means, which appear to be TSCA CBI, you should take the materials to your DCO for assessment and, if warranted, entry into the Document Tracking System (DTS).
