Community Right to Know Survey due  March 1, 2019

Who has to do this?

New Jersey
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 meets or exceeds 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.

New York
Companies in the State of New York should comply with federal chemical inventory reporting requirements.

Industry News: Research Reveals 3D Printers Generate Volatile Organic Compounds

A summary report study, entitled "Characterization of Volatile Organic Compound Emissions from Consumer Level Material Extrusion 3D Printers and Their Relationship with Particle Emissions" was published in 2018 by Georgia Tech and UL Chemical Safety. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were compared with national and international indoor air regulatory health risk tables. The common VOCs included  acetaldehyde, ethylbenzene, formaldehyde, methylene chloride, styrene, and toluene.  These VOC emission rates vary depending on the 3D filaments used.

To understand how best to evaluate airborne emissions and compare to any health risks associated with your 3D printer or for any questions please call us.
