Hazardous Chemical Regulations Database is a unique database that contains regulatory information for over 500 chemicals. The regulatory information that applies to each chemical is derived from seven major regulatory groups of standards, including the Resource Conservation & Recovery Act (RCRA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation & Liability Act (CERCLA) and Superfund Ammendment & Reauthorization Act (SARA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), 1990 Clean Air Act (CAA), Worker Exposure Information, and other information. The database is available on 3-1/2" and 5-1/4" diskettes and can be used on IBM or IBM-compatible equipment.

Chemical manufacturers, chemical formulators, environmental engineers, environmental chemists, industrial hygienists, toxicologists, lawyers, and federal and state regulators should consider Hazardous Chemical Regulations Database essential in order to stay abreast of the latest regulatory information affecting hazardous chemicals.


Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

This includes chemicals regulated using TCLP or P and U waste or that are on EPA's Appendix 8 or Appendix 9 (groundwater) Lists. EPA method numbers are referenced for the Appendix 9 compounds. Also RCRA treatment standards are provided including Restricted Waste Numbers, and Permissible Constituent Concentrations in waste extracts and in wastes.

Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act (SARA)

These include Final Reportable Quantities, Threshold Planning Quantities, Statutory Reportable Quantities, and Title III Section 313 hazardous chemicals with their reportable De minimus percents.

Clean Water Act (CWA)

This includes industrial wastewaters with chemicals defined as "toxic pollutants", "conventional pollutants", and/or "priority pollutants".

Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)

This includes chemicals listed in the 1986/1988 standard, the 1991 Second Triennial List, National Secondary Drinking Water (NSDW) regulations, or the National Primary Drinking Water (NPDW) regulations (the latter includes both current and future NPDW standards with Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL) and MCL Goals).

1990 Clean Air Act (CAA)

This includes "40 CFR Part 61" hazardous air pollutants and National Ambient Air Quality (NAAQ) standards (the latter includes both primary and secondary standards with annual or hourly average permissible concentrations). It also includes the 1990 Title 3 Hazardous Air Pollutants.

Worker Exposure Information

This includes the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) ratings (for health, flammability, and reactivity), carcinogenicity (as defined by listings in the NTP 5th Annual Report or an 1ARC monograph), OSHA federally enforceable exposure limits, and the America Conference of Governmental Industrial hygienists (ACGIH) Threshold Limit Values (TLVs).

Other Information

This includes notations for state regulated chemicals for Massachusetts, New Jersey and California (Proposition 65 chemicals exhibiting reproductive toxicity or cancer causing properties), Canada's Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS) minimum percentage concentration levels for regulation, and the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) identification number for shipping regulated substances.
