Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).




EPA has authorized its contractor Logistics Management Institute (LMI) of McLean, Virginia access to information which has been submitted to EPA under sections 4, 5, 8, and 12 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Some of the information may be claimed or determined to be confidential business information (CBI).


Access to the confidential data submitted to EPA under TSCA section 12(b), occurred as a result of an approved waiver dated April 6, 2000, which requested granting LMI immediate access to this Section of TSCA CBI. This waiver was necessary to allow LMI to repair a database containing 12(b) export notices.
