Products That Are Not Reportable
The following products are not reportable and should not be included on your annual SABRC report: wood products, natural textiles (wool, cotton, and fur), masonry, aggregate, concrete, nonferrous metals, food, live animals, ammunition/explosives, guns, liquid fuel, pharmaceutical drugs, lamps, light fixtures, light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, flashlights, batteries, power tools, glue, film, and electronic items such as computers, televisions, software on a disk or CD, telephone systems, printers, copiers, fax machines, communications equipment, and laboratory and field instruments. The electronic items are not reportable because most of the product cost represents the ability to utilize technology more than it represents the hardware cost (for example, the cost of a CD containing a software program far exceeds the cost of the disk).
