Hazardous Materials Impact Statement

Proposed structures that contain materials that pose a health or physical risk (as defined in the IFC) and if used, stored or handled on site, must have a Hazardous Materials Impact Statement (HMIS) completed and supplied to LFRA at time of building permit application. The analysis must be prepared by a licensed design professional with experience in HMIS, in accordance with Chapter 50 – General Provisions/Hazardous Materials; Appendix E – Hazard Categories; and Tables 5003.1.1(1) through 5003.1.1(4). The HMIS shall include the following:

  • Product name
  • Component
  • Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) number
  • Location where stored or used
  • Container size
  • Hazard classification
  • Amount in storage
  • Amount in use – closed systems
  • Amount in use – open systems
