Government Information

The federal government provides one stop shopping for government information, at usa.gov. This allows both browing and a search of federal and state government information.
For federal regulations, I recommend e-cfr.gov. This is updated daily. In addition, pending changes are flagged with a link to the “Federal Register” citation. It is also searchable. DON’T DEPEND ON THE BOUND VOLUMES. They’re more than 6 months old by the time they’re available.
For information on virtually any regulated substance go to the EPA’s Substance Registry System.
For information on EPA compliance, go to the EPA’s Enforcement and Compliance History Online.
The Michigan Guide to Environmental, Health, and Safety Regulations provides a comprehensive overview of Michigan and federal environmental, health, and safety regulations.
The RCRA Orientation Manual – 2008 edition provides an introduction to these complex regulations.
The “WISER” (Wireless Information System For Emergency Responders) software provides a link to information on a wide range of hazardous substances. This can be downloaded at:
