The manual can be used to orient personnel involved in inspecting and otherwise evaluating potential toxic chemical release hazards to the fundamentals of release hazard control for 13 of the specific chemicals chosen for evaluation under Section 305(b) of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986. It also guides the user to other technical literature for additional information. Section 305(b) requires that the EPA conduct a 'review of emergency systems for monitoring, detecting, and preventing releases of extremely hazardous substances at representative domestic facilities that produce, use, or store extremely hazardous substances'. The EPA must also prepare and present to Congress a report with recommendations for initiatives for the development of technologies and systems for monitoring, detecting, and preventing the accidental release of chemical substances, and for public alert systems that warn of imminent releases.
