Please note that all issuances of PCL or PCL exemption for Chromium VI Compounds are also covered under this, and the companies affected will need to apply for CCO Registration.

Other Chromium Compounds (Chromium (0), Chromium III, etc.) are not affected by the CCO and will still only be under the PCL.

The Order will take effect fifteen days after publication in a newspaper of general circulation and upon acknowledgment of receipt of a copy thereof by the Office of the National Administrative Register (ONAR).
