Any company or person storing, transporting or disposing of PCBs or conducting PCB research and development must notify EPA and receive an identification number using Form 7710-53.
Form 7710-53 must be submitted before PCB activities are started, and should be re-submitted if any information in the form changes. Common changes include company name changes due to a company being sold, mailing address changes due to the relocation of the management facility, and updating the site contact due to employee turnover or retirement.
Please print the form, fill it out completely and return it to:
By email: ORCRPCBs@epa.gov - Submission via email is encouraged and will significantly reduce turnaround time.
