What information is required on lists submitted for Section 311?

What is required if a list is submitted instead of the actual material safety data sheets (MSDS) under Section 311?

Instead of submitting an MSDS for each hazardous chemical, the owner or operator may submit a list of the hazardous chemicals for which the MSDS is required.  This list must identify the hazard categories (acute health hazard, fire hazard, reactive hazard, chronic health hazard, and sudden release of pressure hazard) associated with each chemical and must include the chemical or common name of each hazardous chemical as provided on the MSDS.
