Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Louisiana's requirements concerning security for air toxics are covered in the state's accidental release prevention program. See the national section RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM for more information.

Louisiana follows the federal rules for Section 311 reporting. A chemical list, rather than the actual material safety data sheets/safety data sheets (MSDS/SDS), should be sent to SERC. SERC will send them to LEPCs and local agencies. To review state chemical inventory and toxic release inventory (TRI) reporting requirements, see the state section COMMUNITY RIGHT TO KNOW.

Louisiana follows the federal emergency planning and response requirements. However, all emergency planning and response has to be coordinated with LEPCs and local fire, police, and emergency response personnel. See the state section
