At facilities that use or store items containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the standards in 40 CFR 760.180 require employers to document the previous year’s PCB-related storage, shipping and disposal activities each year before July 1.
The records must be available for inspection by authorized EPA inspectors during normal business hours.
These facilities are required to keep two types of documentation:
- Annual records (signed manifests, certificates of destruction, and records of inspections and clean-ups)
- Written annual document log (refer to 40 CFR 760.180(1)(2))
The annual records and written documentation log must be kept for at least three years after the facility ceases using or storing PCBs and PCB items.
