The Hazardous Substance Information Survey is the form used by businesses and government entities in Oregon to comply with state and federal Community Right to Know requirements for the reporting of hazardous substances. Reportable quantities of hazardous substances that are used, stored, manufactured or disposed of at business and government sites in Oregon are required to be reported annually. Facilities that possess a reportable quantity of a hazardous substance and have not received a survey are required to contact OSFM and request a survey. The OSFM mails a Hazardous Substance Information Survey to facilities that have previously reported when it is time for them to update their information. These forms contain the most recent information which has been reported to OSFM. Facility operators review and update this information as necessary on the supplied forms. To comply with Oregon reporting requirements, facilities must submit their chemical inventory information on the Oregon Hazardous Substance Information Survey form. If you are not receiving a survey, and believe that you should be, call the Hazardous Substance Information Hotline at 503-378-6835, or 800-454-6125 (toll-free from an Oregon prefix). You can also download a Request Form for Unreported Sites and email the completed form to the OSFM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of February 1, 2013, Oregon Administrative Rule 837-085-0070 was revised. This revision was done through input from our stakeholders and emergency responders. The revisions are changes to the reporting quantities for hazardous substances. Please review the changes below:
1. The reporting quantity for most of the hazardous substances has increased to 500 gallons, cubic feet and pounds.
2. The reporting quantity for gasoline and diesel has increased at retail gasoline stations.
3. The reportable quantity for liquefied gas is determined in gallons. The threshold for reporting liquefied gases is now 500 gallons, not 200 cubic feet.
The information reported on your survey is subject to the Hazardous Substance Possession Fee. Please ensure the information is accurate. If you need to remove a substance from your survey, please mark the ‘No Longer Reportable’ box in Section D. If you believe you no longer need to submit a hazardous substance information survey, please contact our office at 503-378-6835 or 800-454-6125.
The new reporting quantities and additional information on the program can be seen in the Survey Instruction Booklet.
