Manufacturers need to be familiar with the 19 chemicals that are currently regulated under the Chemical Control Act. If a company manufactures or distributes any of these chemicals it must verbally report all suspicious transactions to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) as soon as possible and follow up with a written notice within 15 days of the initial transaction. KBI has provided a Suspicious Transaction Report Form (PDF) for this purpose.
Each regulated chemical distributor and retailer shall submit to the KBI:
Any regulated transaction involving an extraordinary quantity of a regulated chemical, an uncommon method of payment or delivery, or any other circumstance that may indicate that the regulated chemical will be used in violation of this act;
Any proposed regulated transaction with a person whose description or other identifying characteristics the bureau has previously furnished to the chemical distributor or retailer;
Any unusual or excessive loss or disappearance of a regulated chemical under the control of the chemical distributor or retailer. The distributor is responsible for reporting a loss in transit (K.S.A 65-7001).
There are rigid and comprehensive penalties for manufacturers and retailers failing to abide by the provisions of this act.
