Accident Investigation Initiation Notice and Order To Preserve Evidence; Extension of Comment Period
The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) is extending the period for comment on the proposed rule entitled, ``Accident Investigation Initiation Notice and Order to Preserve Evidence,'' which was published in the Federal Register on January 4, 2006 (71 FR 309).
Accident Investigation Initiation Notice and Order To Preserve Evidence
The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) proposes the adoption of the following regulation that is intended to notify the owner and/or operator of a facility that suffers an accidental release as defined by the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, (also referred to here as a chemical ``accident'' or ``incident''), that the CSB intends to deploy investigators to its facility, and that relevant evidence must be preserved. Under this regulation, site control would remain the responsibility of the owner and/or operator of the affected facility. However, owners/operators are required by this regulation to exercise care to ensure that the accident scene and relevant evidence found therein is adequately protected from alteration.
