Local building codes mandate Maximum Allowable Quantities of certain hazardous chemicals. All hazardous chemicals must be inventoried. Additional special licensing, registration, security, or handling provisions apply to Chemicals of Interest, Select Agent Toxins, Controlled Substances, radioactive materials, high-risk toxic gases, and chemical waste.
