(a) Definitions—(1) Endrin means the pesticide 2,7:3,6-Dimethanonaphth[2,3-b]oxirene,3,4,5,6,9,9-hexachloro-1a,2,2a,3,6,6a,7,7a-octahydro-, (1aalpha, 2beta, 2abeta, 3alpha, 6alpha, 6abeta, 7beta, 7aalpha)-, CAS Number 72-20-8.

(2) HEX-BCH means the chemical substance 1,2,3,4,7,7-hexachloronorbornadiene, CAS Number 3389-71-7.

(3) Isodrin means the pesticide 1,4:5,8-Dimethanonaphthalene,1,2,3,4,10,10-hexacholoro-1,4,4a,5,8,8a-hexahydro-, (1alpha, 4alpha, 4abeta, 5beta, 8beta, 8abeta)-, CAS Number 465-73-6.

(4) Small business means any manufacturer, importer, or processor who meets either paragraph (a)(4)(i) or (ii) of this section:

(i) A business is small if its total annual sales, when combined with those of its parent (if any), are less than $40 million. However, if the annual manufacture, importation, or processing volume of a particular chemical substance at any individual site owned or controlled by the business is greater than 45,400 kilograms (100,000 pounds), the business shall not qualify as small for purposes of reporting on the manufacture, importation, or processing of that chemical substance at that site, unless the business qualifies as small under paragraph (a)(4)(ii) of this section.

(ii) A business is small if its total annual sales, when combined with those of its parent company (if any), are less than $4 million, regardless of the quantity of the particular chemical substance manufactured, imported, or processed by that business.

(iii) For imported and processed mixtures containing HEX-BCH, the 45,400 kilograms (100,000 pounds) standard in paragraph (a)(4)(i) of this section applies only to the amount of HEX-BCH in a mixture and not the other components of the mixture.

(5) 8-hour time weighted average means the cumulative exposure for an 8-hour work shift computed as follows:

Where:

E is the equivalent exposure for the working shift.

Ci is the concentration (i.e., parts per million) during any period of time (Ti) where the concentration remains constant.

Ti is the duration in hours of the exposure at the concentration Ci.

(6) Year means corporate fiscal year.

(b) Persons who must report. (1) Reports must be submitted by:

(i) Persons who are manufacturing, importing, or processing HEX-BCH for use as an intermediate in the production or isodrin or endrin on or after January 2, 1986; and

(ii) Persons who propose to manufacture, import, or process HEX-BCH for use as an intermediate in the production of isodrin or endrin, on or after January 2, 1986.

(2) Persons described in paragraph (b)(1) of this section who engage or propose to engage in more than one activity (i.e., manufacture and processing) must report the information required in paragraph (d) separately for each activity.

(iv) If applicable, the intended date for initiating the manufacture, import, or processing of HEX-BCH.

(v) If applicable, the actual quantity (by weight) of HEX-BCH manufactured, imported, or processed during the most recently concluded year.

(vi) The estimated quantity (by weight) of HEX-BCH to be manufactured, imported, or processed each year during the first 3 years following the date of the report or the date of the intended start of manufacture, import, or processing, whichever occurs later.

(vii) For each year described in paragraphs (d)(1) (v) and (vi) of this section: the number or expected number of employees exposed to HEX-BCH during the manufacture, import, processing, distribution in commerce, use, and disposal; the routes of exposure; and the 8-hour time weighted average of exposure.

(viii) If employees are exposed or expected to be exposed to HEX-BCH, state for each reported route of exposure, whether personal protective equipment is used or expected to be used, and a description of the personal protective equipment.

(ix) The actual or anticipated quantity, content, method of disposal, and disposal site of any wastes generated or expected to be generated during the manufacture, importation, or processing of HEX-BCH.
