EPA to Add CERCLA Financial Responsibility Requirements for Chemical Industry, Others
Under CERLCA §108(b), EPA is authorized to create regulations that require certain industries or facilities to establish and maintain evidence that they can “cover” the costs of risk associated with their production, transportation, treatment, or storage of hazardous chemicals.
This is not a Final Rule, but a notice from EPA that the Agency plans to propose a rule.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.

This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The exercises in the DOT hazardous materials management course are especially helpful in evaluating your understanding of course information.
