Its functions include testing for durability of engines, hydraulic systems, power trains, electrical systems and transmissions; building prototypes of products; and qualitative and quantitative analytical testing of materials in a chemical laboratory. Since these activities are test, development, and research oriented, is the facility eligible for the laboratory activity exemption (40 CFR Section 372.38(d))?

- 5/23/2013EPCRA §313 chemicals contained in articles are exempt from threshold determinations and release and other waste management calculations. However, a manufactured item can only be considered an “article” so long as (i) the item was formed to a distinct shape or design during manufacture, (ii) the item has end use functions dependent in whole or in part upon its shape or design, and (iii) the item does not release a toxic chemical under normal conditions of processing or other use. If a facility has an aggregate release of greater than 0.5 pounds of a TRI chemical from the processing or otherwise use of an item and all like items, then the item and all like items do not qualify as “articles,” and all toxic chemicals contained in the items are ineligible for the articles exemption. If two items are made from different materials or formed to different shapes or designs, are they considered like items?
