Obtaining SF-135 Approval
After you complete the SF-135 and box lists, notify your program's Records Liaison Officer. Before the records leave your office, the Records Liaison Officer will review the SF-135, the box list, and boxes and approve by initialing Box 6(f) in the SF-135
After the SF-135 is approved by your Records Liaison Officer, notify the Headquarters Records Officer and request a customer reference number (CRN) aka accession number. Write the CRN number from the SF-135 in 1-inch-high letters with a black permanent marker in the upper left corner of the front of each box in the accession.
The Headquarters Records Officer requires a completed EPA Facilities Service Request (SF 5100-8) to transfer the boxes to a staging/holding area pending delivery to the FRC.
|Filling out Standard Form 5100-8|
|Type the following statement in the center section titled "Description," filling in the information requested in parentheses:|

Please see (give name of person responsible) prior to pickup.||Customer Reference Number (CRN) 412‑XX‑XXXX
You must submit the original completed SF-135 and three copies, with box lists attached to each, and Standard Form 5100-8 to the Headquarters Records Officer, who will review and approve the accession. The paperwork may be mailed or hand delivered to Tammy Boulware, Headquarters Records Officer, Mail Code 2822T. The 5100-8 does not require funding or approval, so the bottom half of the form should be left blank. The Headquarters Records Officer sends two copies of the completed SF-135 with the box lists attached to FRC for approval, which may take four to six weeks.
