To All:

As you may know, President Clinton signed on August 5, 1999, the Chemical
Safety Information, Site Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief Act
(P.L.106-40) which sets new requirements for reporting and disseminating
information under Section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act. Specifically, the law:
i) prohibits the EPA Administrator from listing a flammable substance when
used as fuel or held for
sale as a fuel solely because of its explosive or flammable properties,
unless a fire or an explosion caused by the substance would result in acute
adverse health effects due to human exposure other than those caused by the
heat of the fire or
impact of the explosion; and ii) prohibits the dissemination of offsite
consequence analysis data under Federal freedom of information provisions for
one year from the Act's enactment date, during which time the President, the
EPA Administrator, and other entities must perform various activities to
determine
appropriate means for its dissemination.

A copy and summary of the Act and a factsheet describing the law's
requirements can be obtained from CEPPO's
