C.I.Agent oil solidifier has been pre-approved for use in loose form on open water in RRT III (Mid-eastern US), RRT IV (Southeastern US) and the CRRT (Caribbean).

This limited preauthorisation allows up to 1,000 pounds of C.I.Agent to be used on spills of less than 500 gallons (providing all conditions of the preauthorisation are met).
