User note:

About this appendix:Appendix H is intended to assist businesses in establishing a Hazardous Materials Management Plan (HMMP) and Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS) based on the classification and quantities of materials that would be found on-site in storage or use. The sample forms and available Safety Data Sheets (SDS) provide the basis for the evaluations. It is also a companion to Sections 407.5 and 407.6, which provide the requirement that the HMIS and HMMP be submitted where required by the fire code official.

(see Example Format in Figure 1).

  1. Fill out items and sign the declaration.
  2. Part A of this section is required to be updated and submitted annually, or within 30 days of a process or management change.

  1. Provide a site plan on 81/2-inch by 11-inch (215 mm by 279 mm) paper, showing the locations of all buildings, structures, outdoor chemical control or storage and use areas, parking lots, internal roads, storm and sanitary sewers, wells and adjacent property uses. Indicate the approximate scale, northern direction and date the drawing was completed.

    4. 1.4. IBC/IFC Hazard Class.
    5. 1.5. Inventory Amount [Solid (lb), Liquid (gal), Gas (cu ft, gal or lbs)].
    6. 1.6. IBC/IFC Maximum Allowable Quantity per control area (MAQ). (If applicable, double MAQ for sprinkler protection and/or storage in cabinets. For wholesale and retail sales occupancies, go to Tables 5003.11.1 and 5704.3.4.1 of the International Fire Code for MAQs.)
  2. HMIS Inventory Report (see Example Format in Figure 5).

    1. 2.1. Complete an inventory report by listing products by location.
    2. 2.2. Product Name.
    3. 2.3. Components. (For mixtures specify percentages of major components if available.)
    4. 2.4. Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) Number. (For mixtures list CAS Numbers of major components if available.)
    5. 2.5. Location. (Identify the control area or, if it is a Group H occupancy, provide the classification, such as H-2 or H-3.)
    6. 2.6. Container with a capacity of greater than 55 gallons (208 L). (If product container, vessel or tank could exceed 55 gallons, indicate yes in column.)
    7. 2.7. Hazard Classification. (List applicable classifications for each product.)
    8. 2.8. Stored. (Amount of product in storage conditions.)
    9. 2.9. Closed. (Amount of product in use-closed systems.)
    10. 2.10. Open. (Amount of product in use-open systems.)

Facilities that have prepared, filed and submitted a Tier II Inventory Report required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) or required by a state that has secured USEPA approval for a similar form shall be deemed to have complied with this section.
