Key Program Features
Extensive Chemical Database: CAMEO Chemicals uses a chemical database, which contains response recommendations for thousands of chemicals. Find a chemical of interest by searching on a name, identification number, or other search criteria.
Critical Response Information: Chemical datasheets provide physical properties, health hazards, information about air and water hazards, and recommendations for firefighting, first aid, and spill response. UN/NA datasheets provide response information from the Emergency Response Guidebook and shipping information from the Hazmat Table (49 CFR 172.101).
Chemical Reactivity: This tool predicts what hazards could arise if chemicals were to mix.
Online and Standalone Versions: Use the CAMEO Chemicals site to get quick, convenient access to all of the response datasheets and the reactivity prediction tool. All of the same functionality is also included in a standalone version that you can download and run from your own computer so that you don't have to rely on an Internet connection to get your response information.
CAMEO Chemicals was developed by NOAA in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Web site is maintained by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration.
