SURVEYS DUE MARCH 1

EFFECTIVE REPORTING YEAR 2011, ALL SURVEYS MUST BE SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY

WE WILL NO LONGER BE MAILING OUT SURVEY BOOKLETS

slide4
SURVEYS DUE MARCH 1

We will be offering an Electronic Reporting

Hardship Exemption

To apply for an Exemption you must complete a Community Right to Know

Electronic Reporting Hardship Exemption Application which can be found at: http://www.nj.gov/dep/opppc/figdoc.htm

who must complete a crtk survey
Who Must Complete a CRTK Survey
  • Employer as defined by the New Jersey Worker and Community Right to Know Act
  • Based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Codes
  • Required to submit a Survey even if no hazardous substances present*

* Certain exemptions apply

who must complete a crtk survey1
Who Must Complete a CRTK Survey

Federal – Emergency Planning and Community Right

to Know Act (EPCRA)

Any facility, regardless of industry sector, if hazardous

substances are present above threshold quantities

what must be reported
What Must Be Reported

New Jersey

  • Hazardous substances on the NJ CRTK EHS list
    • Typically, 500 pound threshold

Federal

  • Any hazardous substance or product for which a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is required per the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard
    • Typically 10,000 pound threshold

New Jersey and Federal

  • Extremely Hazardous Substances (EPCRA Section 302)
    • Threshold Planning Quantity (TPQ)
community right to know reporting exemptions
Community Right to Know Reporting Exemptions
  • Facilities that previously reported as a Non-User or User Below Threshold of environmental hazardous substances (EHS’s)
  • Employers within an Exempt NAICS Subcategory
  • Unstaffed Sites (cell towers, well stations, switching boxes, etc.) unless EPCRA reporting thresholds are met or exceeded
  • Employers if all locations in NJ perform Administrative functions only
community right to know reporting exemptions1
Community Right to Know Reporting Exemptions
  • Can be exempt only after initial submittal of CRTK Survey indicating such status*
  • Must notify NJDEP if change in status
  • NJDEP conducts periodic, random, inspections to verify status

*For Non-Users, Users Below Threshold, and Unstaffed

Sites, notification must be made on or after January 1,

2005

community right to know reporting exemptions2
Community Right to Know Reporting Exemptions
  • EHS’s present, in aggregate, below threshold quantities
  • EHS’s at facilities, or portions of facilities, used primarily for research and development (R&D)
    • Must obtain a CRTK R&D Laboratory Exemption from NJDEP
  • EHS’s that are an integral part of the facility structure or furnishings
  • EHS’s that are, or are contained, in personal property for the personal use of employees
community right to know reporting exemptions3
Community Right to Know Reporting Exemptions
  • EHS’s present as a solid in any manufactured item formed into a specific shape or design during manufacture to the extent that exposure to any EHS does not occur under normal conditions of use.
    • Does not include Saran, PVC and Lopac
  • EHS’s comprising 1% or less of a mixture, or 0.1% if the EHS is carcinogenic as defined at 29 CFR 1910.1200 (d)4 of the OSHA Hazard Communications Regulation
  • EHS’s contained in ammunition on the person of security personnel
threshold determinations
Threshold Determinations
  • Determine if EHS present at any time during the reporting year
  • All occurrences of a EHS must be aggregated to determine if the threshold has been exceeded
  • If threshold exceeded, all occurrences of EHS must be reported
  • Solids
    • Only the quantity of an EHS in fume or dust from a solid piece of material being modified needs to be calculated for threshold determinations
    • Do not include the weight of the entire material being modified
threshold determination dan s manufacturing company
Threshold DeterminationDan’s Manufacturing Company

Company has 200 gallons of degreasing solvent. Material Safety

Data Sheet (MSDS) Shows it contains 40% benzene, 20% toluene

and 10% xylene

Convert gallons to pounds using density of solvent from MSDS

200 gal X 8lbs/gal = 1,600 pounds of solvent

  • 1,600 X 0.40 = 640 pounds of benzene
  • 1,600 X 0.20 = 320 pounds of toluene
  • 1,600 X 0.10 = 160 pounds of xylene

Only report benzene since the 500 pound threshold is exceeded

threshold determination dan s manufacturing company1
Threshold DeterminationDan’s Manufacturing Company

Company has 10 gallons of paint and 15 gallons of solvent.

MSDS shows the paint contains 15% toluene and the solvent 20% toluene

Convert gallons to pounds using density of solvent from MSDS

10 gal X 8lbs/gal = 80 pounds of paint

  • 80 pounds X 0.15 = 12 pounds of toluene in the paint

15 gals X 8 lbs/gal = 120 pounds of solvent

  • 120 X 0.20 = 24 pounds of toluene in the solvent

Aggregate the quantities of toluene

  • 12 pounds + 24 pounds = 36 pounds total of toluene

Less than 500 pounds, do not need to report toluene

threshold determination dan s manufacturing company2
Threshold DeterminationDan’s Manufacturing Company

Facility has 2,000 cubic feet of methane in liquid form and 1,000 cubic

feet of chlorine as a gas.

Convert cubic feet to pounds*

  • Methane
    • 2000 ft3 X 26.3 pounds/ft3 = 52,000 pounds of methane
  • Chlorine
    • 1,000 ft/3 X 0.200 pounds/ft3 = 200 pounds of chlorine
  • Quantity of methane exceeds the 500 pound threshold and the quantity of chlorine, an extremely hazardous substance, exceeds the 100 pound threshold

* Conversion table found in CRTK Guidance Document –

http://www.nj.gov/dep/opppc/crtk/figdoc.htm

Threshold DeterminationDan’s Manufacturing Company

Company is cutting a 8,000 pound piece of steel

that contains 20% chromium. They estimate that

approximately 30% of the steel is being generated

as dust from the cutting operation.

    • 8, 000 pounds X 0.20 = 1,600 pounds of chromium
    • 1,600 pounds X 0.30 = 480 pounds of chromium
  • Quantity of chromium in the dust does not exceed the 500 pound reporting threshold
multiple occurrences of ehs
Multiple Occurrences of EHS
  • May be grouped as one entry if:
    • Same container type
    • Same storage conditions
      • Pure/mixture
      • Solid/liquid
  • All hazards must be listed
  • If any of the above criteria differ, EHS must be listed separately
special reporting requirements
Special Reporting Requirements
  • Diesel fuel, #2 heating oil, gasoline, kerosene, petroleum oil and waste oil
    • Reportable if present in quantities of 10,000 pounds or greater
      • Can use 7 pounds/gallon to convert from gallons to pounds
        • A quantity of 1, 429 gallons or greater would exceed the 10,000 pound threshold
    • Do not need to identify EHS constituents
  • Alternative Fuel
    • Reportable if contains more than 10% ethanol and present in quantities of 10,000 pounds or greater
special reporting requirements1
Special Reporting Requirements
  • Wastes
    • Reportable if EHS present elsewhere at the facility at or above the reporting threshold
      • Do not include quantities of waste in threshold determinations
    • Combine reporting of EHS in wastes and non-wastes to determine inventory if stored in the same container type
    • If the waste contains a mixture of EHS’s report it as “Haz Waste, N.O.S. (only if EHS reported)”
special reporting requirements2
Special Reporting Requirements
  • Quality Assurance Labs
    • Small samples of EHS’s that are present elsewhere at or above reporting threshold
    • Group and report as one entry
      • “Substance Samples (only if EHS is reported)”
      • If stored in same contained, enter container code
      • If stored in multiple containers, enter “OT” for other
      • Use substance number 3628
