The manual sets forth procedures for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employees, other Federal employees, contractors, and contractor employees to follow in handling information claimed as confidential business information (CBI) under Section 14 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). That section of TSCA requires EPA to protect from public disclosure CBI obtained under TSCA, and it imposes criminal penalties for the knowing and willful unauthorized release or disclosure of such information. EPA has issued regulations (40 CFR Part 2) that implement TSCA's confidentiality provisions. The procedures in the manual supplement those set forth in TSCA and in 40 CFR Part 2.
