TSCA CBI Training - Responsibilities

Update the TSCA CBI Authorized AccessList/Monitor & Control CBI Release

Each DCO has the responsibility of keeping the TSCA CBI Authorized Access List current. By the 15th of each month, DCOs must notify the OPPT DCO of any employees within their jurisdictions who should be added to, or deleted from the list.

Each DCO also has the responsibility of monitoring and controlling the release of TSCA CBI to authorized employees. The steps for obtaining TSCA CBI are:

  • Employee requests a specific TSCA CBI document from his/her DCO.
  • DCO locates the document and notifies the requesting employee.
  • When the employee is ready to receive the document, the DCO verifies the requesting employee's TSCA CBI certification by checking the TSCA CBI Authorized Access List.
  • The DCO logs the document out to the employee using an automated or manual document Inventory Log.
