        Any company or person storing, transporting or disposing of PCBs or conducting PCB research and development must notify the EPA and receive an identification number using Form Below is a list of documents describing the instructions for filing a Form , the Form file and a list of of all facilities that have notified EPA. HSPD was issued on Aug and calls for a mandatory, government-wide standard for secure and reliable ID for all of its employees and employees of federal contractors to access federally-controlled facilities and networks. Based upon this directive, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) developed Federal.

      Superfund Research Program This webinar series focused on polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in schools and featured SRP grantees, as well as EPA and international partners. During the first session, EPA Regional Risk Assessment Coordinator Mark Maddaloni gave a brief overview of PCBs and the issue of PCBs in the environment, particularly in schools.

A polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) is an organic chlorine compound with the formula C 12 H 10−x Cl lorinated biphenyls were once widely deployed as dielectric and coolant fluids in electrical apparatus, carbonless copy paper and in heat transfer fluids.. Because of their longevity, PCBs are still widely in use, even though their manufacture has declined drastically since the Chemical formula: C₁₂H10−xClₓ.

This document provides visual guidance to help users understand how to sample certain types of PCB waste (e.g., natural gas pipelines, PCB remediation waste after cleanup, non-porous surfaces, and PCB bulk product waste) as described in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in part subparts M, O, P and R.

At a Glance. PCBs are classified as a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and a reasonably anticipated carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program (NTP). The EPA banned PCBs from new products in Due to their persistence in the environment, they are still found in soil, riverbeds and dust particulates in homes.

Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, became a target of the environmental movement in the United States and elsewhere beginning in the s. The low-level presence of PCBs in the environment, coupled with a perception that these compounds produce adverse health effects, has driven public concern and regulatory policy ever since.
