Maintaining a DTS/Transfer of CBI

The DCO is responsible for implementing and maintaining a Document Tracking System (DTS) for his/her respective facility, to track the receipt, use, and transfer of TSCA CBI. All TSCA CBI submitted to EPA, and those produced by federal and contractor employees, are monitored through a facility DTS.

A DCO must approve the transfer of TSCA CBI to a federal or contractor facility according to procedures in the TSCA CBI Protection Manual. To arrange transfer of TSCA CBI to a company or submitter, the company or submitter must submit a notarized letter, requesting specified CBI and identifying the authorized recipient.
