GAO-08-864R August 22, 2008 The principal role of the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) is to investigate accidental releases of regulated or extremely hazardous substances to determine the conditions and circumstances that led to the accident and to identify the cause or causes so that similar accidents might be prevented.
The survey went to about 1,800 facilities that had recently reduced their use of extremely hazardous substances to less than thresholds set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
For example, about 300 chemicals not included in the TRI and therefore not included in Nowhere to Hide are identified under the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986 as extremely hazardous substances.
Failure to immediately notify the proper authorities during and after an accidental release of hazardous and extremely hazardous substances violates the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).
