In October, 1986, Congress passed the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). Title III of this act, known as the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, was in response to thousands of deaths in Bhopal, India when a chemical known as methyl isocyanate (MIC) leaked at a Union Carbide plant.
SARA Title III establishes a community's right to information on what hazardous chemicals are used, stored, produced, or released from local industries. It also provides a framework for Emergency Planning in the event of the release of chemicals including:
- Emergency Planning and Training
- Emergency Release Notification
- Hazardous Chemical Inventory
- Toxic Chemical Release Inventory
- Hazardous Materials Management Plans
Denver Fire Department has specific reporting and permitting requirements. HP&P Safety Inc has extensive experience with those requirements and can help your company achieve and maintain compliance. Many businesses now have to get a permit for Hazardous Materials if they use or store them in their building. For new buildings or renovations a permit may be required depending on the materials and quantities.
If your company has questions concerning SARA Title III compliance, please call our office.
For more information on Colorado requirements see the Colorado SARA Title III Program Overview
