Question # 37

37. NAICS code 562 (waste management and remediation services) contains many diverse activities. How does a facility that conducts more than one activity in NAICS 562 and is regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, subtitle C, 42 U.S.C. 6921 et seq., determine if it is primarily engaged in solvent recovery, and therefore, covered under EPCRA section 313?
A facility that conducts several uniquely different activities that are within NAICS 562 and is regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, subtitle C, 42 U.S.C. 6921 et seq., should identify the value added of the goods or services that each activity contributes. A facility is considered to be “primarily engaged” in solvent recovery if the goods or services produced by the solvent recovery activity have a value added of more than 50 percent of the total value added of all goods and services produced at the facility, or if the value added of the goods and services produced by the solvent recovery activity of the facility are greater than the value added of the goods and services produced by any other activity at the facility.
