392. If an item on the Section 313 list incorporates toxic chemicals with multiple CAS numbers (i.e., nickel compounds), how is the CAS number of the item described?
Do not enter a CAS number in such cases. Instead, enter the appropriate category code (provided in the instructions to the Form R) in the space for the CAS number in Part II, Section 1.1 of the Form R. The individual chemical members of a listed category are not required to be, and should not be, identified in the report.
