Changes to Maryland Chemical Information List (CIL) Requirements - MOSH

During the last legislative session, the General Assembly passed House Bill 189 which eliminated the requirement for an employer to develop a chemical information list that identified both the common name and chemical name of the material, and the location in the workplace where the material may be found. The legislation also eliminated the requirement to revise the list every two years, and submit the list to Maryland Department of the Environment. There remains the requirement for an employer to develop a list of hazardous chemicals in accordance with 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.1200(e)(1)(i).

The legislation enacted by the General Assembly, also requires that if an employer's business ceases to operate or formulate, handle, manufacture, package, process, react, repackage, store, or transfer hazardous chemicals in a workplace, the employer shall promptly submit the most recent chemical information list to the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation. The list may be sent to the following address:

Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation
Division of Labor and Industry
1100 N. Eutaw Street, 6th Floor
Baltimore, MD 21201

The effective date for the new legislation is October 1, 2014.
