TSCA CBI Training - Responsibilities

Responsibilities for DCOs

DCOs have very special responsibilities in the OPPT organization. DCOs manage their facility's Document Tracking Systems (DTS) and oversee the timely receipt, storage, transfer, and use of TSCA CBI in their facilities. All facilities authorized for TSCA CBI access must have at least one DCO and an Alternate DCO (ADCO). There is also an OPPT DCO who is responsible for providing guidance to all DCOs and ADCOs on appropriate document handling procedures.
