Each manufacturer, importer, and processor of the substance shall maintain the records for 5 years from the date of their creation. In addition to the records specified in §721.40, the records whose maintenance this section requires may include the following:

(a) Records documenting the manufacture and importation volume of the substance and the corresponding dates of manufacture and import.

(b) Records documenting volumes of the substance purchased in the United States by processors of the substance, names and addresses of suppliers, and corresponding dates of purchase.

(c) Records documenting the names and addresses (including shipment destination address, if different) of all persons outside the site of manufacture, importation, or processing to whom the manufacturer, importer, or processor directly sells or transfers the substance, the date of each sale or transfer, and the quantity of the substance sold or transferred on such date.

(d) Records documenting establishment and implementation of a program for the use of any applicable personal protective equipment required under §721.63.
