Question # 45

45. Is my facility covered by EPCRA section 313 if the value added of laboratory research at my facility is greater than 50 percent of the total value added of goods and services produced at my facility?
If the research laboratory is a separate establishment from the other activities at the facility and its NAICS code is not in a covered NAICS code, then the 50 percent test is used to determine if the whole facility is in the covered NAICS codes (40 CFR Section 372.22). In this case, the facility would not be subject to reporting because the primary NAICS code is not within the covered NAICS codes.
