Title: ●Financial Responsibility Requirements Under CERCLA Section 108(b) for the Chemical Manufacturing Industry 

Section 108(b) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, establishes certain authorities concerning financial responsibility requirements. On January 6, 2010, the Agency identified classes of facilities within the chemical manufacturing industry; the petroleum and coal products manufacturing industry, which primarily includes refineries and not coal mines; and the electric power generation, transmission, and distribution industry as those for which could develop, as necessary, financial responsibility requirements under CERCLA 108(b). On January 11, 2017, the Agency made a determination to proceed with rulemakings that will either develop proposed financial responsibility requirements under CERCLA 108(b), or determine such requirements are not warranted. This entry identifies the chemical manufacturing industry as the anticipated third of the three industries for which the Agency will make such determinations; however, this is subject to change.
