To All:

I wanted to forward this message about a new helpful document on the Y2K
issue for small business.

Gary Jones

Subject: Y2K advice for small biz

1. Those of you that sit on LEPCs or a responsible for compliance issues at
small- or medium-sized businesses should take a look at the following guidance.

Addressing Year 2000 Issues in Small and Medium-Sized Facilities That Handle
Chemicals (June 1999) (EPA 550-F-99-011) (PDF)

This guidance was developed by several chemical industry trade associations
representing chemical manufacturers, formulators, distributors and retailers
in partnership with the U.S Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board and
the U.S. EPA. The document will help small and medium-sized businesses in the
chemical industry assess and address potential Y2K disruptions in facility
operations, particularly safety-related control systems and equipment.

This document can be found at EPA's Chemical Emergency Preparedness and
Prevention Website at
and on the Synthetic
Organic Chemicals Manufacturers Association site at
