with the regular notification and is classified as "general"
will be listed in the IECSC after 5 years and then be an "old" substance.

substance of priority environmental concern" then the certificate holder is

desired usage of the chemical or the yearly quantity changes. A new complete
application has to be filed, but existing documents can be used.
