Frequent Questions

Are different substances aggregated for threshold determinations?

A toxic substance is never aggregated with a different toxic substance to determine whether a threshold quantity is present. If your process consists of co-located vessels with different toxic substances, you must determine whether each substance exceeds its threshold quantity.  A flammable substance in one vessel is never aggregated with a different flammable substance in another vessel to determine whether a threshold quantity is present.  However, if a flammable mixture meets the criteria for NFPA-4 and contains different regulated flammables, it is the mixture, not the individual substances, that is considered in determining if a threshold quantity is present.
