    Regulatory Compliance Information The following is a summary of regulations and guidelines that may pertain to chlorine (additional regulations and guidelines may apply): • Chlorine is designated as a hazardous substance under Section (b) (2) of the Clean Water Act. See 40 CFR File Size: KB. The methods described in this report are used in conjunction with those described in Environment Canada Reference Method 1/RM/8, "Reference Method for Source Testing: Measurement of Releases of Particulate from Stationary Sources". These methods are used to determine the rate of mercury emissions from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants. The amount of mercury in the cell room ventilation air is variable and comes from many sources, including end box sampling, removal of mercury butter from end boxes, maintenance operations, mercury spills, equipment leaks, cell failure, and other unusual circumstances The only source of data for mercury emissions from chlor- alkali.
