Community Right to Know
Due March 1, 2020
Facilities in certain industrial classifications defined by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Codes are required to submit an annual Community Right to Know Survey (CRTK Survey). Many companies believe they are exempt from reporting requirements and have not submitted a CRTK Survey or an Exemption form.
New York City
Most companies, with few exceptions, have to submit a CRTK Survey. Since the NYC RTK Law has set very low reporting thresholds for many substances, even small quantities may need to be reported. Compliance is required if any hazardous substances meet or exceed the appropriate reporting threshold. Mixtures will also need to be reported depending on their contents. Other Right to Know requirements include reporting spills at the facility, designating a facility emergency coordinator and labeling hazardous material containers properly.
Companies in the State of New York should comply with federal chemical inventory reporting requirements.
