Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--September 16, 2013, to September 20, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed SPCC qualified facilities, GHS and the Hazard Communication Standard, and EPA's promotion of safer chemicals.

Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

What Is an SPCC ‘Qualified’ Facility?--EPA's Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan regulation allows for some “qualified” facilities to create simpler SPCC Plans with the added ability to self-certify your Plan, rather than hiring a professional engineer (PE) to certify it.

Are You Self-Certifying Your SPCC Plan?--Here are some things self-certifying companies should be aware of when creating their SPCC Plan.

GHS Changes to Hazard Communication--Here's an overview of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) changes to OSHA Hazard Communication Standard.

New GHS Deadlines Looming--Here's a reviews of deadlines, related requirements, and some costs and benefits related to the GHS changes to the Hazard Communication Standard.

Safer Products Through Safer Chemicals--EPA, through its Design for the Environment (DfE) program, added more than 130 chemicals to its Safer Chemical Ingredients List, making a total of 602 chemicals that meet the criteria for DfE’s Safer Products Labeling program.
