The respective contracts comply with all requirements of 40 CFR 2.310(h)(2). EPA Region 9 will require that each of the respective subcontractors' employees with access to CBI sign a written agreement that he or she: (1) Will use the information only for the purpose of carrying out the work required by the contract, (2) will refrain from disclosing the information to anyone other than EPA without prior written approval of each affected business or of an EPA legal office, and (3) will return to EPA all copies of the information (and any abstracts or extracts therefrom) upon request from the EPA program office, whenever the information is no longer required by the subcontractor for performance of the work required by the subcontract or upon completion of the subcontract.Start Signature
